A Mountain Man named . . . well, see for yourself . . .

I met this man last year at Fort Bridger Mountain Man Rendezvous. If you haven't heard of such a thing, click here and consider attending. It will be worth the trip.
Anyway, these rough and tough mountain men don't exactly go by their given names. Here they are known as a name they earned or nicknamed. For example, my grandpa's name is Wayne Mendenhall, but when he attended the rendezvous he was known as Snowy Owl.
When I asked the man above his name, I wasn't surprised to learn his name is Dammit.
Just as he and Bill Cosby explains, throughout his childhood he thought his parents had called his name every time they spoke to him. "Dammit, get over here!"
