In all honesty, I can be taught virtually any job that doesn't require large amounts of strength (like heavy lifting for hours on end). I could also teach the less experienced how to shoot.
This sounds similar to what I had in mind.
P.A.W. ideal job... Treasure Hunter.
And not in the Indiana Jones / National Treasure sence. I would be a member of a small recon / scouting team. We would go out and scavenge any tools or materials that the craftsmen in the town or village request in thier efforts to fabricate tools or simple machines, medicines, etc. My team would consist of 5 to 7 members. The billets would be as follows:
1 - Pathfinder - Member goes ahead up to half a mile and ensures safe passage, acts as navigator as well.
2 - Flankers - Side security durring movments and security at scavenge sites.
3 - Main Body - Primary scavenger team. Consits of most senior and most junior members of the team.
When work is sparse, I would run an inn with my wife. Something in the fasion of the "Prancing Poney" in the Lord of the Rings series.
I always enjoy (even now, pre apocalypse) being the right hand man. Not necessarily the one in charge but the one who gets things done. Similar to the lead henchman in Book of Eli but without the forced marraige / tyrant thing going on.
I don't like being in one place for too long so I would need a job that allows me to travel a little.
I am also a skilled craftsman (welder, carpenter, mason) so I would be useful on those fronts as well. I have inadvertantly already trained myself for a P.A.W. I just need to find like minded folks with whom to form a colony or village.
