That was not in any form a shameless commercial spam attempt as we often see here, but instead a personal testimonial about the kind of man that makes outdoorsmen proud to be men of the water and woods... no beyond that, a testimonial that makes us proud to be men, period.
I would love to meet this man. I mean I try to live my life in a manner that benefits others and in doing so experience personal growth and self-worth, but from what you are describing I have a long way to go to meet the standards of what some others are doing.
