    Hi Jan.

    Thank you for this post and your suggestions. We will address this post and take a further step before we draw a line under the subject ourselves.

    "However, I suggest:
    - I stop complaining. please pass my sincere apologies to the lady in the office
    - Trueways updates the course syllabus, description and kit list to prevent any further confusion and/or disappointments"............

    Ness in the office accepts your apology with understanding and thanks.


    We will do one, possibly two things with regards to the course description.
    Tell Les to not deviate from the syllabus at all, or update the course description to reflect any changes..

    The Kit-list improvements you recommended.
    "The kit list sent:
    - Never ever needed survival knife
    - We did not need gloves
    - Binoculars: not really needed
    - Sleeping mat: Not needed at all!
    - We did need sleeping bag
    Meaning, 25% of the kit list is rubbish".

    We would still strongly recommend taking all the above going into the African bush, however we will state that some clients do not feel these are needed.

    We would like to take a further step as a gesture of good will.
    We know you really enjoyed our 5 Day basic to advanced Woodland Survival Course. We would like to offer you a free place on either our
    2 Day Urban Survival Course, or our 3 Day Coastal Survival Course.
    We feel this will more than make up for any Survival instruction you felt you missed out on and we really hope you take us up on this offer.

    Best wishes.
    Trueways Survival Team.

    As a bystander, I think that offer is fantastically generous!

    It is a very generous offer that took me completely by surprise.

    Thank you for that.

    Very much appreciated! If any of your team visits the Netherlands, give them my number, I'm happy to treat you for a pint :).
