Looks cool, too bad I can't go. $300 would be outside of what I could do right now anyway.
shoot carlos an email. he may do something for returning students.
lots of good info to be covered this weekend guys.
I'm interested. Sent an email to the first address listed. We'll see if I can talk Household Six into it.
Thank you sir. Have a few couples signed up already with mil/le background so we should have time to dabble into a bit more intricate things.
BTW for everyone that missed it this class last weekend went extremely well.
The course will be taught by former green berets, Marine Force Recon operators, and an Army Sniper. All these guys have experience in not only special operations, but they have also worked as private military contractors in third world countries. Remember, unlike typical military units, PMCs usually cant call for backup while being engaged by superior forces. This means that these men have to be proficient at moving without being seen. This skill set is not only extremely valuable to those who travel in enemy territory, but can be very valuable in a post apocalyptic scenario.
Do you guys do realize that April 8th is Easter Sunday. I was probably going to be able to swing it until my wife pointed that out.

Are you guys going to run this again soon? Easter weekend is almost 100% a no go for me due to family commitments.
If I can come up with the money, I will def sign up! Only thing after that is the Easter Sunday part
There will be more in the future. We are shooting for another in the summer so it will be nice to get up in the mountains for a few days.
