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.
