I agree with you, the point of this thread has nearly been lost... try just reading the first page.
And I agree with you, that in this field, I am lacking the self confidence I would need to make a go of it.
But nobody but me
, knows if that's pessimism, or realism!
I've been backed into a corner, and even I don't recognize the person that is now fighting his way out.
The original intent of this thread wasn't "let's offer Krusty help", and that's not why I posted my points of view.
You are also right, in that offering me anything to use in business, is moot... as I don't currently plan on going into business for myself!
So quit beating a dead horse!
I already sucked it up, and made a decision, as to whether or not to continue trapping... no whining involved.
I sat down with my ledger book, crunched up some numbers, and felt sick to my stomach... the REAL ME, had a buncha fun trappin' beavers, but the me I have become in this thread regrets having blown so much of my savings doing it.
Following Ron's good advice, I am going to fill in that hole, and build up a little pile again, before I think about digging another one.
And the real me, with probably man up and give it my best shot (when I am ready), just like I always do.
IF YOU HEAR A WHINE, YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR COMPUTER LOOKED AT!
I never asked for everything laid out for ME, but SEEING A TRAP, might be a good thing to have happen in trapper training or NCWO certification courses, no?
And apprenticeship programs at the local level won't hurt.
Doing away with the barriers between "us" and "them" that alienate people might be a good thing...
And cooperating for the good of all, would probably be, good for all.
I am not in the WCO business, and I don't want to be, anymore.
Not meeting me and hanging out together, was LT and Vinke's loss, too.
I'm a good person, a good friend, an honest, hardworking, overgrown boy scout.
I don't have a problem with the man I see in the mirror, and I don't have trouble sleeping at night, even though I have hit some bumps along my way.
