Mountain Men

Mountain Men


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your life off the grid? Have you wished you could shed the complications of modern society and live in the wilderness, using only the things nature has provided? Meet Eustace Conway, Tom Oar and Marty Meierotto of the new History series "Mountain Men", three men who have devoted their lives to survival in its simplest form. But how simple is it really?

From the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to the seven-month-long winters on the Yaak River in Montana to the frigid northern range of Alaska, the country is full of some very unforgiving terrain. Watch as these men face off against mudslides, falling trees, ravaging weather and even hungry animals, to make sure they obtain the food and supplies they will need to make it through the brutal winter months ahead.

The History Channel has attempted to expand on it's "reality TV" theme along the lines of "Swamp People" or "Axe Men" but the newest edition "Mountain Men" really misses the mark. Promotions suggest viewers will learn how to live off the grid but none of the featured "mountain men" actually do that. Tom Oar lives in a very comfortable modern home in the Yaak Valley of Montana. Marty is an Alaskan trapper who does spend part of the year in a remote cabin but flys home to catch his daughter's ballet performance. Eustace Conway runs a sort of New Age, back to the earth hippie commune where people pay big bucks to visit the remains of an old farm. Read more

Taxes on Turtle RanchRating: 0 likes, 2 dislikes

Why does Eustace feel that the taxes on his property are unfair? Everyone pays taxes on property.

Also it is so easy to see that the producer for this show wrote the script. Eustace and his friend rode their horses into town (20 miles round trip) to save money??? Give me a break. It looks like his friend could afford the $5.00 for gas to drive a truck into town. Also riding a horse that has never been around traffic into town? How stupid is that? And he waits until the afternoon of the last day to go into town to protest the taxes? Geez...surprise...surprise. Where's the attorney? Please don't let Eustace plead his case. Good thing he didn't shot the poacher last week if he would have caught him. He'd been in jail...but that's all right cause everthing Eustace does is all right. Can't wait till next season.
