Growing up in Oklahoma the dream of my best friend and myself was to be a MountainMan. We tried to live off the land as best we could but it wasn't until I moved to Alaska that I had the real chance to fullfill my dream.
From building a cabin to chopping firewood. From trying to find food tom putting up with fish stealing bears it was an adventure I'll never forget.
Living alone in the Alaska wilderness. One of my favorite stories as a kid was the ones about the mountain men of the early eighteen hundreds. I did my best back then to copy everything I could from those books and live off the land “off the land”. I never thought it would be more than a fond dream until the opportunity presented itself in Alaska during the mid 70’s. This is my story.
