Mountain men living on the flat land

TULSA, OK - The days of Daniel Boone and Davey Crocket are long gone but almost every weekend somewhere in the country  a mountain man rendezvous is held.

A coonskin cap and buckskin is the appropriate attire at a mountain man rendezvous.  

These events are held all over the country and almost every week of the year.  The people that make up the gatherings all have a common bond -- they love the simpler time in life.

No electricity, no running water, they spend their weekends living in tee pees, lean-tos and canvas houses.  They cook over an open fire and chat up the day with talk of flint rifles and black powder.

The rendezvous is a bit of a traveling series with people living like the fur traders of the 1800's.
