modern day mountain man
 
Not really sure if this goes here, but I thought it was quite an interesting story. Was prodding around CNN today, and found this story about a man and his wife who have been living in virtual isolation for more than 30 years in Alaska. They survive by trapping, fishing, and hunting their own food. They rotate from 3 individual cabins to make sure the game isn't depleted in any one spot. The video is quite fascinating :-)

He's looking at his ancestors, and my hand was in such a mess I didn't have the time to make him ready for the pit. All I wanted was to get My hook out of him or her. BTW they don't stich these types of wounds. I'm over loaded on antibiotics and still worried about infection because it was a gator with bad breath, any how I'll be back in the swamps. God Bless,;)Wills

Hang tough there man. You got my respect. That gators breath coldnt have been any worse than my sister n laws. Hers could knock a buzzard off a **** wagon.:)
