Last night, a Bulgarian lady came to my office. Her story is that her educated son, 36, had peculiar behavior since March 2016. Something like religious delusions. He disappeared without warning for 6 months. He came back with nothing but a rucksack and said he lived on the mountain, eating mushrooms, fish and bread he made from flour he had with him, living as an askete. He came back because he wasn't prepared for a harsh winter on the mountains. I would like to talk with him but he doesn't want to see a doctor. The fascinating thing is that he wasn't a survivalist, he studied language his whole life.
I say drop 'em in the middle of no where, pick 'em up in a few weeks. If they live, pat 'em on the back and give 'em a beginner survival course certificate, if they don't - no money back guarantee

With more metal in my ankles than in the average economy car someone would be very hard pressed to not run faster than me! Def

I took my son out and had him build a debris type shelter, no tools allowed so he got the idea of how much work and how long it really takes to do this. He learned its not as easy as TV and You Tube makes it out to be. A lesson in reality is always a good teacher.
