A while ago my hubby and I went to visit friends who were staying on farm at the bottom of a mountain. While we were walking a long a hike I was thinking to myself how all 3 of them would be able to survive if they were all stranded on an island.
Guy (my husband) - is a make a plan man. He is your 4x4, offroad and camping guy. He would be able to make shelter, a fire and provide food - just to name a few things...
Roché - Ranger Roach! Yes he is a qualified ranger and can protect you in the wild. He is like a walking wildlife encyclopedia and can fend for himself (and others). He can use the stars as a map and will get you to safety (our very own Bear Grylls)
Anzette - Look this girl knows how to look after herself... She is engaged to Ranger Roach and is pretty bad-ass. You don't want to get on her wrong side, but she is such an awesome girl and so much fun! Guaranteed laughs. She can catch fish, make a fire and do pretty much everything the two above can do!
Then there is me... You can see how depressed all the above skills might have made me, and yes I was a little despondent at the time. Why on earth would they need me? So I started analysing my skills... Reading, reading, reading and writing?
Then it hit me... I have knowledge of the paranormal elements!! Plus lots and lots of read-about skills... *tee hee*
