I would love to write some pithy introduction to this man's short example in the New York Times of the iconic edge of our hobby, but, quite frankly, I do not think I could do justice to the balls that it takes to venture out (way out) into a life style choice such as this. But, nonetheless, kudos!

Yea, but does he trade homebrew for prawns as a means for survival?

Huh... huh... does he?...

Man, it looks like it would end up being "roughin' it" camping as a lifestyle.

I love going camping, but I'm not too sure I would like it living that way, though, I guess you would get used to it. Hell, people did it for centuries!
