I won't bé hunting before 2 years. But then There is both.
I'm mostly interested in chamois, chevreuil, and cerf. I'm scared of hunting boars, they feel to human for me. Maybe duck as well, but other bird feel like they have toi much life comparés to how much méat they have. Otoh, grasseating mamals evolved around being prayed on, so praying on them feels thé most normal thing in thé World.
When a deer Wakes you up at night in thé forest, you wake up wanting to kill and cool it. When a boar Wakes you up, you wake up scared that the boar will want to destroy thé threat you might be.

Can you spend the (pre-license) non-hunting time studying these animals and how they behave? Where do they hang out? What do they eat at what time of year? One thing to read about those things, another to actually observe them. It will get you off the beaten path to learn to track them.

What's status of food delivery in Swiss, especially bike type?
How smart are they in fencing this kind of job from immigrants?
In Poland, this job is taken by people by Third World Countries, I must say that their work ethics (as in doing crazy amounts of hours to survive in this country) is very impressive, I wouldn't like to compete with such people in my country, but doing this in Swiss is some kind of possibility.

Hmm.

I like this combination of socialism and capitalism :lol: The question is how it influenced "easiness" of earning money as Uber Driver.

I think my younger self would bé impressed by how i leave home with a small mat, a sleeping bag, a bottle of water and one extra underpant.
Bornholm was a very good surprise. I had no expectations. I was before thé tourist Season, and it was very quiet. I just slept wherever i found it ok.
I did this before, but i was impressed at how natural it was to go so lightly.
You can monetize that skill: https://www.youtube.com/c/VagrantHoliday

So can I take the closest plane to Swiss and buy bike some from local ebay [or take it with me], sleep on some (paid) camping ground (ideally I assume I would rent 1room in some student area after short life "stabilization", but I worry that the price would kill my budget) and pull 160h at bike courier without worrying about competing with people with even higher grit than me?

I mean optimize this problem based on how much I need to deal with people and Swiss bureaucracy.

Well, based on trolling in different online community, some leftist positivist argued that even cleaning lady from Montenegro after finding job in Swiss is protected by some union regulation. Situation in Poland with bike couriering is closer to "bogus self-employed".

I never tried Uber eat. I even boycott it. Maybe it doesn't existe in switzerland? Pl is in eu, so if you want to try it one week it's not illegal, i Can let you use m'y second bike and tell you a good place to sleep outside close to thé city. Or if gf is away, you Can sleep on m'y couch. I don't garantee you'll make any money.

You mean by filming my holliday? I'de rather teach people to do it. I think film either leave people at thé dreaming stage, or convince people to do "stupid"(in thé sense of something arming everyone's interest) things.

https://t.me/jeanstrautmann

I hope you're doing fine.
I am.
I started a job at a moving company.
It's only a few days a week, and it pays 30.- per hour, so, quite good for that kind of job.
I like it for now. Everyone there is nice.

Have you considered joining the military again Jean? I believe you have expressed interest in a military career before.

That's not really an option, you can only apply once for the special forces. Otherwise, I have no interest in being an officer or an instructor.

Special forces? Why in the hell would he do that? He’s almost 38 years old.

I was only very shortly in a 9to5 job, but this song really hits it. I can't find the ERE song topic anymore, so i'll just post it here.
