It’s time for a sacred cow roast. Actually, this is one of my favorite romantic idealizations. I love the movie Jeremiah Johnson and I love the idea of the mountain man. I’ve been telling people for decades that I was just going to move out into the mountains, build a cabin, and disappear. Unfortunately, that kind of self-sufficiency isn’t real for a lot of reasons. I want to talk about real self-sufficiency and why that legendary mountain man self-sufficiency is a myth.
