My History and the Classes I Teach

Post by Tango1papa »

Here is a bit of my history.
I started my training in 2006. In 2010 we decided to start a training company called Wyoming Survival and Tactics. There weren't many schools in Wyoming so we were hoping to fill the gap. We closed WST last year. My partner went his own way. I debated for the last year if I wanted to go back to teaching or not.... well here I am. I have taken a minimum of 1 class every year since 2006. I was never in the military nor an LEO just a training junkie.
I live an offgrid life in SW Wyoming. I grow my food and raise ducks. I hunt for meat in the fall.

Guys, T1P is the real deal and a guy who LIVES BY WHAT HE ADVOCATES.

It’s a rare thing in the world, and he’s also a guy I’m very proud to call a friend.

If you’re out west do not pass up an opportunity to train with one of the most down to earth, genuinely great people I know.

Enjoying your blog over on Wordpress. Keep up the fantastic work. Santa didn't bring me that TinySAUltra that was at the top of the list, so in the interim I'm thunking around with a RTL-SDR kit. Maybe I can swing the logistics to take in a course in 2024.
