Hahaha, thanks for the vote of confidence, I am a busy, busy man between young children, a wife, work, completing a part-time Masters Degree and numerous other things.... If I get 2 minutes to myself over the next few years I will let you know

I will post on here though, so that will have to do for now I am afraid, lol. If you have any questions then I will do my best.

While looking through your introduction you mentioned advanced driving/riding.

I am familiar with defensive driving as well as driving in hostile environments...but curious as to what "advanced riding" is...are you referring to a gunner position, keeping a VIP in a safe position or?

I never thought of riding as a particular skillset, but never turn down a chance to learn...would you mind to start a thread on advanced driving and riding?

Thanks
Advanced Driving is a UK qualification that encompasses cars, motorbikes and commercial vehicles such as HGVs (Semi trucks for those in the USA). I am a rare breed in that I hold all three qualifications, which is very unusual, but I love a challenge, lol.

The elevator pitch - Advanced driving/riding is all about using a system of car control to ensure a smooth drive, avoiding danger and making the maximum amount of progress whilst minimising risk to yourself.

The longer version - It is open to anyone and is run by the Institute of Advanced Motorists; their aim is to make the roads a safer place. You basically are taught certain simple skills and concepts over the space of 10 - 30 lessons before being put forward for your advanced test. This test is conducted with a UK Traffic Policeman who holds the highest driving qualification in the UK. It's pretty tough, but SO satisfying.

It is internationally recognised and helps to reduce insurance premiums due to the statistical risk reduction that IAM members who have completed the test present for an insurance company.

The riding qualification has saved me from 2 potentially fatal motorbike accidents and several smaller 'bumps'.

have a look at the link below

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IAM_Ro...d_driving_test

On top of this I also completed a Police Response driver course in order to drive a high performance Rapid Response Vehicle (RRV) for the ambulance service on 'blue lights'.

I was a volunteer medic for 5 yrs with a scheme run by the ambulance service which utilised military personnel in rural areas answering 999 (911) calls. For my last 2 years I ran the team for my unit which was a true privilege and was REALLY rewarding.

This meant I got a lot of medical training and they got a medic for 'free' and patients lived; win/win/win.

Regarding starting a thread, what exactly would you guys want to learn as I am more than happy to do that. I love teaching and sharing knowledge, just let me know.

Take it slow and steady. It's a great forum. Credible experience gradually speaks for itself, but you'll encounter occasional folks who either don't appreciate it, openly doubt it, or just like to argue. Don't take it personally. There's always a much larger audience that tends to read more than they post. They'll appreciate the information sharing.
Why thank you! Truly humbled by your comments.

I know what you mean pickling your liver, the Brits love to show those from the other side of the pond how to drink properly

I am mega impressed with the forum so far, it has a wealth of info. I have already stumbled across several 'characters' already, lol. Live is too short to stress about those that aren't worth the key strokes

Indeed, as a Father of 3, myself, I know that 'theater of battle' well.. It's a joy, to be sure, but it's a Non-stop effort... Often quip 'Yes, I Am a Soldier as well.. for my Family'...

...Anyhoo, if you Do get those '2 minutes' now and then, perhaps consider a 'Vlog'.. you can still maintain 'OPSEC', by just videoing your voice, and add-in relevant 'stock' video, to provide a visual backdrop, etc.. Why?

..well, there's Lots of peeps out there (and I'd bet, in here..) that are Glad to pay a little for 'seasoned specificity', that is to say, Specific 'modules' of training / how-to's / demos, etc, from someone that's 'Been There / Done That', rather than just putting out 'Game Theory' / being armchair-Quarterbacks, etc.. Lots of Opinion-vlogs out there, relatively-few actual Experience vlogs, choc full of seasoned Experiences..

...Again, I, for one, would Sign up / travel (within the US, I'm practically all over it for my Co's work, as it is.. Last trip driving x Country was 9,600 miles, RT.. in a week 1/2.. for such 'supplantive training'.. Have had Much, as a former EMT / lots of 'seasoned advice' from LEO friends / Mil-medics, etc, but.. One can Never learn enough..

..and the Day a man Stops Learning.. is the Day he begins Dyin'.. and I personally plan to live full to the Last Drop...

Cheers, keep us posted if you decide to do any-such 'vlogs' on yer Site, or even 'Modules', herein.. Again - specificity... Meat / potatoes, not candy bars..

Welcome Dave. Glad to have you here. Looking forward to your input and hopefully learning a few new things from you. There are a few of us here who still enjoy learning and don’t actually know everything already. There are several of course who do in fact know everything. Just ask them, they’ll tell you.

Welcome to the forum. I look forward to your posts and insights.

I got to serve with some really great British military soldiers when I was assigned at SHAPE. I loved their fondness of darts and a good beer!

Hi, SurvivorChap.

What you're reminding me of that I'm interested in is whatever's cutting edge on the battlefield-- for instance, what might be especially likely to find its way onto our streets in a without-rule-of-law situation, like improvised / homemade tech. I'm thinking of a few different examples I've seen in articles that concerned me a lot.

The last couple decades of war seem to have included a lot of innovation.

Best

Good luck with the zombies

I hear you on that one and totally get your thinking and very real concerns, however, that's veering into classified territory for obvious reasons. I really have to watch as some things are off-limits if I don't want to jeopardise the good guys currently giving it to the enemy and risk me spending time in jail.

If I tell the good guys on a public forum, the bad guys can find it also, sorry. I hope you understand
