    volunteering

    I am not as fit as I used to be but you can get a good days work out of me.
    This has crossed my mind may times in the last year or so. I am not as fit as I used to be but you will get a days work out of me. Supply me with food and water and I will happily help you out.
    I have my own family so planning is key but I would like to help someone out that needs it.
    Surprisingly good with a paint brush and wall papering or home decor and have own arms and legs so can help with other things.
    Sometimes you need a hand so ask away and I am happy to help you out, might not be tomorrow but as long as I can sort my family out I am yours for a day.

    Oh and kinda needs to be about the Waikato due to transport issues with my lovely wife.

    You sound like just the sort of person to help out a local group, maybe SAR or similar.
    It is very rewarding and you get to put something back into your community.

    Yeah I have the medical skills for the likes of SAR, i used to train emergency response teams so at the last count had most of the tickets just not the searching part, and I just don't always have the opportunity to devote the required time to it so happy to help in other ways.

    Willie. You don't have to commit to anything concrete time wise, just as much or as little as your life allows.
    I am 100% sure that you will have a skill set that a local group would find very helpful.
    As far as Sar goes, the actual search part is only just that, a part. Base crew, radio operators etc etc are needed just as much as ground troops.
    Imagine getting yourself lost in the Kaimais and being able to find yourself

    You could also try volunteering for some of the long distance races and events like the oxfam trail walker as those volunteers work there asses off- however they tend to enjoy it!
