Welcome to the Wilderness

My husband and I are listening to an audiobook that includes many stories of survival in the wilderness. One thing’s for sure, if my man took off into the mountains, he’d not only survive, he’d have an Airbnb made of sticks and grizzly bear pelt up and running in about two weeks..with rudimentary plumbing and…
