To me Arsenius the Hermit is the man. He is my friend and inspiration. I've been reading his blog for years, and waited with patience while he took a two year leave of absence from blogging. A long two years.
He writing style is graceful and intelligent. We both come from the old school of survival thinking; followers of Mel Tappen and Ragnar Benson, to name but two of the originals in the school of self-sufficiency.
You can find a link to his blog on my sidebar, 'Living Out There.' Do yourself a favor and visit. Hang out a while and read his work, front to back. You will learn, trust me.
Like I said, he's my friend, and good ones are very hard to find.
