Even though living away from the modern world, isn’t as adventurous as it sounds it does have its own benefits. And while living in the forest or snowy lands are some probable options, the mountains seem to be the most interesting choice. The series Mountain Men takes a similar premise and follows its cast as they try and make a living for themselves deep in the mountains. From managing food to the water supply to medicines, there is a never-ending list of things you need to look after. Morgan Beasley is one of the cast members of the series who takes on the barren snowy lands of the Great Alaska Range so that you get to know how exactly it feels to live in the mountains.
Who is Morgan Beasley?
Morgan Beasley is not your average man. He is a mountain man who lives off-the-grid in the remote Alaskan wilderness, where he faces harsh weather, wild animals, and rugged terrain. He is also a pilot, a guide, a songwriter, and a horse lover. Morgan Beasley has a degree in Environmental Science, but he prefers to learn from nature and his own experiences. He has trekked across the Alaska Range, worked as a wrangler at sheep hunting camps, and built his own homestead with his partner Megan Stern. He was featured on TV’s Mountain Men for fives seasons, where he shared his adventurous lifestyle and survival skills with millions of viewers. Morgan Beasley is a man who follows his own path and lives by his own rules. He is a man who loves the apricity: the feeling of the warmth of the sun.
Morgan Beasley was born in June 1981 in Idaho, USA. There is very little information on Beasley’s early life and his parents. We do know that Beasley has a little sister, Jill Beasley, who works as s a medical sales recruiter. Beasley finished his education at the University of Idaho gathering a degree in Environmental Science.
Fresh out of college, Beasley started working odd jobs here and there. He worked for some time in construction before moving on to cabinetry. During his early years, Beasley worked as a tourist guide and also helped out in a fish processing company. Due to his hatred for normal factories and industries, Beasley never joined any companies.
His budding disdain for the modern way of human life encouraged Beasley to leave it all behind. So began Beasley’s life as a nomad going wherever suited him. He spent the next ten years living as a nomad before finally settling down in Alaska. With 37 acres of land to himself, Beasley built a homestead for living. Beasley kept a farm packed with horses and is rarely seen without one.
In 2015, Beasley was provided the opportunity to work with famous naturalist Eustace Conway. He made his official debut in the 4th season of the reality series and remained an active member of the series till the 8th season. He appeared in 78 episodes from 2015 until his departure in 2019. Beasley was joined by Marty Meierotto who also left the show in 2019 with a mindset to spend more time with his family and adventures.
The reality star has turned to a business of his own since leaving the show. The appearance in Mountain Men brought Beasley immense fame and some much-needed finances. He invested his earnings from the series in a company by the name of Apricity Alaska Wilderness Adventure. He runs the organization with a fellow cast member, Margaret Stern. The company works to provide wilderness tours around the Great Alaskan Range.
Married to Margaret Stern?
Due to his lifestyle as a nomad, Beasley is assumed to be single. However, there have been some rumors about his potential relationship with Margaret Stern. While the pair is yet to confirm or deny their relationship, viewers often ship them together due to their similar lifestyles.
Margaret is born and raised in Houston, Texas. She later came to Maine to study Botany and natural history at the College of Atlantic. Not only did she share the television screen with Morgan, but also followed him in the business Apricity Alaska Wilderness Adventure.
While there are signs Morgan and Margeret could be more than just two working buddies we can not confirm anything for sure. For now, the question remains if they are dating or tied by marriage knots. Let’s wait until the pair is ready to spill the beans on their relationship.
