In which we attend survivalist boot camp


It’s Sunday and I just walked into my office.  I totally forgot that the fish tank is a mess and really, really needs to be cleaned up. Who knew that fish were so high maintenance??


Also Andie came home for the weekend to escape from Med School and we’ve had a lovely time, the three of us!  The other day Andie and I had a conversation about someone that she knew who was thinking of going to a “coding” boot camp.  I didn’t know what that was but apparently, it’s for people who got some of those “useless” degrees to go and learn how to do computer coding thereby enabling them to get a real job in the real world.


At any rate, I was pointing out that I wasn’t aware you could learn to code in such a short period of time.  Fast forward until later that night and we were flipping channels and there was nothing on.  Andie and I then had the following conversation:


Me:                  what movie is this?


Andie:             zombieland


Me:                  I’ve never seen it


Andie:             it’s sort of a spoof on zombie movies


Me:                  is it funny?


Andie:             I suppose…zombies aren’t something I’ve ever really worried about


Me:                  me neither…I think we’ll have an apocalypse but not a zombie one


Andie:             I agree


Me:                  of course, we’ll both die because we have no survival skills


Andie:             you know what would be great?


Me:                  what?


Andie:             a survivalist boot camp


Me:                  that would be awesome…we could learn to hunt


Andie:             and trap and build a structure of sorts


Me:                  we would need to learn how to make weapons


Andie:             I think we should learn knife throwing


Me:                  always a good skill. I think learning how to decontaminate drinking water would be good as well


Andie:             hunting and trapping is the most important though


Me:                  it would be hard but well worth it.  Let’s do it in July


(When Andie has 3 weeks of med school)


Andie:             that would be a perfect vacation


So now all we have to do is find such a boot camp.  Wanna join? Any ideas?

    Let me know if you find one. I’m waiting for the apocalypse and would like to live beyond the first five minutes. For no other reason but to say “I told you so” to my husband.

    This sounds like my worst nightmare. You know, camping without the luxuries of a tent, or a bed, or dry clothes, or fire, or canned food. Yikes!!
    But, if you are seriously considering putting yourselves through such torture, you can enquire at your local outdoor adventure sports type stores. They might know of such courses.
    Good Luck ! and I mean that :)
