Though I focus on backpacking the High Sierras here in California, our country is full of remarkable people and places. Many of these people live in beautiful country. 

One of those people is Lane Maddox, and one of those beautiful places is Kentucky. 

During the last 40 years we here  in California have built vast cities that have divided our citizens from nature, and removed the country from our characters. This is a great loss, and not worth the pennies of profit gained from selling our character.

The vast cities we built for short term profits here in California are already giving us long-term problems.

In the midst of all these breakdowns in our schools, our health, our wealth, our water, nature, and our rights that have already happened in California, I got this fine video from Lane that gives me hope for our country:

A Country Boy Can Survive
