    I watch it every week. I can't believe how hard these guys work. They had one guy in Alaska with a broken snow mobile. He had to walk ten miles home in the dark for the new motor and drag it back the next morning to fix it. Jeezus.

    I checked that out too. They said one guy was living near the KY, TN border or somewhere like that, and I immediately thought of you. Is it really that remote back in there? Isn't there a town at least every 10 miles or so? I don't see anyone living outside the Rockies or Alaska as a "mountain man."

    no its not that remote....if you watch carefully when they scan the skyline....look to the left and you will see a 10 story high rise condo building called sugar top...they sell firewood to locals...how hard to you think it is to get back there?

    I think they're trying to hard with some of these "reality shows." They're looking pretty pathetic.

    Bring back "Hogan's Heroes" and "The Man From Uncle."

    You should watch Lizard Lick Towing. That's in North Carolina too, not too far from Raleigh, I think. That show is chock full of crazy rednecks. It's hilarious.

    Have you seen Swamp People? Ever since the success of Hatfields and McCoys, I've seen a bunch of these come on the scene. Back country interest.

    That must be on Bravo or some other channel. I just looked to record it and couldn't find it on The History Channel.

    You know that stuff is all fake don't you?

    I mean ALL those shows on TruTV (except maybe World Dumbest Criminals, because that's from Police Dash Cams and Security Footage) are FAKE.

    You tube is all over this. They have fights and the microphones that are on the guys that they are fighting are exposed.

    I mean there are LAWS that repo people have to observe. You can't fight and do all that stuff they show on tht show. It's as fake as wrestling.

    Hardcore Pawn is the same way. Just type in "hardcore pawn fake" into youtube to get the videos of microphones falling out during fights and stuff like that. It's FAKE!

    None of that stuff is real.

    No, I did not think the ones on the History channel were fake.

    I was saddened when they killed the Beavers.

    Beavers should be carefully nurtured, and given a great deal of attention.:confused:
