I have seen new ones pop up, but never been part of the process that makes them, since there have been no new FSME’s in many years. But I can say
they are fairly knowledgeable on the subject. Semperfortis is the one for the Survival forum (my membership predate the creation of that forum).
I have zero problem with him holding that title over me as we both know enough that despite living it with those skills in play, we know that we
don’t know everything. Semper being a Marine (once a Marine, always a Marine) is the one I would defer to in making a judgement call in a situation.
And here is why. My solution may have worked or even been the right course of action, but took too much time and resources to complete and we still
would get by on his plan. Conversely mine might have only worked if and only if there was full commitment to the plan and wasted resources if we
failed. Or if I failed to explain the process fully.
So more than just raw knowledge. And for those reading this and scratching their heads because I would ask “the dumb questions” on the Survival
Radio Shows. I often did so for audience members that could not because we didn’t take many callers.
