Did you ever find the people you need? I’m apprehensive to respond to your post because a few of these have turned out to be full on shit shows... just some group getting a contract that they have zero ability to fulfill without growing by leaps and bounds almost overnight... they promise the moon then the folks who show up end up walking because the company is unable to handle the logistics involved... is this another one of those?
Just be honest if it is.
If not I could be interested (not a line clearance climber)

Hey, @Flex Abednego; It is good to read you again, I hope all is well.

When I hover my cursor over the original poster's username, it tells me that he joined up here on the Buzz on November 5th, 2018, and started this thread two days later, on November 7th, 2018. That was the last day that he logged in to the Buzz. It's possible he still lurks here, but I'd be betting that when he got zero responses to his original post, he gave up on this forum. Maybe I'm wrong, but I would not hold my breath waiting for a response from this guy.

Like I said, it is good to read you, and I look forward to reading more from you. I hope you stick around awhile. Take care.
