A book I can do, even with photographs. I will even consider the idea of a DVD on some skills to accompany a book. I will not be doing a YouTube channel, for a couple of reasons:
- there's too much shit on YouTube anyway, and I'm not willing to waste my time so it can get lost in the noise:signal ration on YT.
- A YT channel would put my face out in public far more than I am comfortable with for PERSEC reasons. While a DVD accompaniment to the book would do so also, it would be less of an issue. Folks, we're all dead anyway, as CA at WRSA likes to point out, and if I have to go, I'm damned sure going to deserve it, but I'd LIKE to see my daughter grow up, so I'm not going to hasten my demise or compromise any sooner than is unavoidable.
- Beyond the individual training tasks, which are actually pretty widely available in video format anyway, there's no way for one guy, by himself, to do a video presentation of SUT and other collective tasks, that would be worth a shit.
I have also been asked, several times now, both in comments, and via email, if I would consider doing classes. I would be more than willing to, if I could figure out a way to support my family, while taking the necessary time off from my real job. If someone wants me to come to their location (western United States only, at this time, weekend courses only), I would be willing to do that, assuming they can get 5-10 participants for a class, and those participants are willing to pay enough to cover my travel expenses, lodging, and time missed from work. I'm not greedy, and I'm not in it for the money, but I DO have an obligation to support my family. I can assure you however, that if this were done, the cost would be significantly less than less in-depth training from other instructors, who will not cover some of the same specifics I am willing to discuss (nothing illegal!).
Also, I just discovered a couple of comments had been stuck in the Spam folder. I apologize for not noticing them earlier. Rest assured, if you try to post a comment, I WILL NOT DELETE IT, unless it's over-the-top illegal. I may respond with a comment of my own telling you that you're fucking retarded, but I believe in free expression, even of stupidity. Your comments will not be deleted (if you say anything disparaging about HH6 or the mini-morale officer though, I'm likely to hunt you down and kill you in your own bed though, just for the record).
Thank you all, for your support and time spent reading my work.
