Would you consider yourself to be a "Mountain Man" living in Central New York or the Adirondacks? Are you single? You might be on TV.

According to a CraigsList post, a major television network is looking for Mountain Men that are single, and or currently dating someone? Specifically the person you're dating, are they about to move or visit your homestead for the first time? Are they about to learn how to be self-sufficient?

OR, Are you currently dating someone that doesn’t understand your self-sufficient lifestyle but wants to learn?

This TV gig may be for you:

We want independent, rustic country individuals that know how to live on their own. You must be living in the mountains or off-grid. Does this sound like you?

Do you want to date someone and teach her how to live the rustic mountain life?
Do you trap/hunt your own food and live independently on your own in the mountains or off-grid?"

According to the post, this show will follow these men or women around as they teach their significant other how to live self-sufficiently. If you're up for some entertainment, you can apply here.
