About Me

Hello LaMar !  Glad to find you - in "The Backwoodsman".   Your info., skills, music, etc. are EXCELLENT !  I like you attitude with life - Thanks.  People around the world have tagged me with the title of "Mountain Mel" . I'm not really a mountain man  - just wanted to live in the mountains all my life .  Finally got around to it after 23 yrs. Navy , packing parachutes and working with the SERE-P.O.W.  survival schools .  Then due to my "Vietnam vacation" ( points) I got a USPS job in Colo. - which made all possible to purchase 40 acres in beautuful Unaweep Canyon at 7,000 ft. where I created my survival tipi camp .  I have fought the system all along  but now at age 71, I have escaped , ha.  So I am still traveling, sharing and learning survival skills.  I have 40 yrs. experience from the Arctic Circle to the Amazon, having trained over 100,000 students of all ages , military and civilains.  Twice I was invited by the King of Sweden to train 17 countries.  I make fire 30 ways without a match but - oops - I am not a builder/carpenter/tool person etc.  I teach " emer. save your life skills"  at my sm. cabin in the canyon  while I do have a simple, basic  shelter in town ( Yes, one tipi is in my front yard for "sitting in the woodsmoke for escape time". My interest now is to assist a troubled youth whom wants a life style as yours - so I am searching cabin ideas, etc.  In short , you are the person whom I believe he should learn from .  I will direct him to gather , study your way of life.  Love your pups . I must say a USN " Bravo Zulu" to you . Trying to keep this short , I hope to talk to you sometime.  Sincerely standing by, (Mtn Mel) Mel Deweese and Carley Blue girl.  970-216-4178  www,      Nature Knowledge programs.
