TMc: 100 Deadly Skills for Seniors

    Hopefully, nobody is interested in kidnapping a suburban senior guy. My number 01 skill is to live 50 miles outside Metro. Many of the ideas are for everyday unfortunate non-criminal events.

    Last winter, the retired policeman in our 'lunch & shoot' club capsized into frigid water while kayaking and nearly froze to death. His cell phone in a zip bag was used by his daughter to ping towers and help the rescue folks locate him under dirt and leaves on the bank just before dark.

    Recently the low gas warning light came on while I was on a lonely N.C. rural road without cell reception. It was a potential DELIVERACE moment.

    Conclusion: You can modify the Deadly Skills into just Skills. A travel bag with food and cloths to survive the night trapped on the expressway during a snow storm...that sort of event.

Hilarious. Military /Combat Zone humor is always top nothch.

It is so real. That may be why R. Lee Ermey's character in "Full Metal Jacket" is so memorable.

Another bit of advice for new Cherries was: "Everything you do can get you or me killed, or both! I don't much care about you, but I value the hell out of my life, so don't do anything stupid!"

Occasionally the Cherry would ask "What's Stupid."

The Answer. "Now you are learning!"

Really cool poetic reference.

You could build a series of articles on: "Check up and Saddle up boys, if you don't take it with you, you want find it out there!"

Great advice for military and civilian life.

I don't know about the Navy Seal thing but my E7 Sgt told us as we got on the chopper for the field.

"Check up and Saddle up boys, if you don't take it with you, you want find it out there!"
He was a WWII and Korean combat veteran and I swear he carried a full Supply Room in his Pack.

A perfect example of the 5 or 6 "P's" principles.

"Does anybody remember where I put my Ammo?"

Great post Ted: Bring in a navy Seal to tell us all, including Seniors, how to "kick ass and take names".

Good theme.
