As a descendant of a Native American I find it appalling to call these types of individuals "survivalists". They're nothing more than outcasts who live on the gains of others. Otherwise, he would be a true mountain man, living of the land, and making his own camp -- not breaking and entering into others cabins and "surviving" on what they've furnished in their cabins. I liken this to a worker in my office who is a true outdoorsman -- the "great white hunter" who goes on organized hunts. You know the ones where the hunter is in a blind and uses food, etc. to get the prey close enough to shoot -- what sport. Do it like my ancestors did, live off the land if you want to be a survivalist - mountain man, and hunt your prey in a situation that it's you or them -- not a surprise attack -- any sissy can to all that.
