Love it - I'd kill to see a version of this for wanabe survivalists who figure all they need is their piece of land in the middle of nowhere & a lot of 'How To' manuals.

It's not easy & it's not fun. Fun comes backbreaking years later after you know your land & more importantly - what you're doing.

And some never learn.
