This certificate came in the mail yesterday. I am at once honored, flattered and humbled. To have your work recognized by your peers is a great feeling. To have your work recognized by your mentor is something else entirely. It says on the certificate that I am recognized as a peer, but in my opinion this man doesn’t have any peers. Through his work, he shaped survival and wilderness skills training into a professional field. For that we all owe him a debt of gratitude.
Honored and humbled, sir, but by no means your peer.
