    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.
