The visions of a typical "Mountain Man" has changed drastically in the last several decades. Pioneer types, Hunters, Fishermen. We used to think of a Grizzly Adams guy with long hair, un-shaven, dry skin & maybe even white cracked lips. Now-a-days it's all about the polished look: Healthy people everywhere. The magazine covers with extremely fit hunks rock climbing with the gorgeous skin, great clothes & the best gear.
Media tends to glorify it all. It misleads the general public into a 'Barbie style vision' of what back country, wilderness & camping will be like. Most get into the outdoors with little or no education on 'outdoor hygiene'. This is what we're here for. To answer all them embarrassing questions you never had the nerve to ask.
