My friend and fellow bushcraft instructor David Cronenwett has a great new blog called A View From Aerie Mountain: Natural History, Bushcraft, Outdoor Survival, Grizzly Bears, Human Ecology, Montana And More. David is an experienced instructor of outdoor living and has some keen insights into both outdoor life and people.
His post titled Personas Among Us concerns a student in one of David’s courses who already knew everything because he “grew up in Alaska”. I’ve run into numerous people with similar delusional assessments of their abilities based on where they grew up. It’s a great read.
