He's regressed back to the 4 elements.  Genius.

How many days until we find out he's a fabrication?

I saw that show the other day. It's so over the top it seems fake. If it's not, he's farking crazy pants.

He's Radagast the Brown!  I bet he smells like the underside of a mossy log.

I bet he'd be cool to hang out with for like a day.  Then I'd probably get hungry and have to put on my shoes and hit up Taco Bell while he ate twigs and berries or whatever.

I love how being a screw-face narc is so popular now.

ultraholland: I like this guy.


Me too.  I especially like how much he and every other off-grid individual bring out the hateful venom from the wildly insecure Fark collective.  They really get uncomfortable when confronted with lifestyles that run counter to their own, and I love watching these assholes squirm.

My thought exactly. We need another "survivorman"-type show like a fish needs nipples.

I like how he ditched his family to live in the wilderness. A real stand-up guy there. We should all look up to him.
 
2014-01-07 11:12:31 AM
Rejecting the soured teat of modern civilization? I'm surprised this guy isn't in jail for such insolence.

And of course by not participating in the system the miserable kept worms will insult and undermine him.

I suppose working with those debilitating hammer toes as a heavy equipment mechanic; on his feet for the majority of the work day. As well as his chest pain and all would have played out better in your mind if he'd stayed the course and died an early death. Instead he's doing well, and looks to find balance in his life. Yeah, that's farked up. Hell, you don't even know if the family they talk of is 14 kids and a big fat wife, or just his kin.

Trolls usually live in the deep woods... maybe you should join them.
I'll see you there... look for the white knight on an all-terrain tricycle.

The forests are big, the state is small. You haven't been to the forest. It's tough to see for the trees.

Oh jeez, it's a whole series?  I just thought it was gonna be a two-parter.

Why can't we have more Vice-style programming on TV?  You know, offbeat informative pieces about world events and fringe cultures?  Hard-hitting journalism?  Their stuff is fantastic.  But everybody's gotta try to stretch it out and turn every topic into a reality show and milk it for far more than it's worth.

Reality television turns every potentially interesting topic into garbage.

Ho Rain Forest is in the Olympic Peninsula.    Oregon has a plethora of hippies, but this one isn't theirs.

What this show is going to do is ruin the peninsula as the trendy hipster hippies all flock out there to commune with nature.

No because we have a firm grasp on reality unlike some farkers who are really 13 year olds who have a 8th grade interpretation of a book that "predicted" the future.

Sounds kind of like how we feel when the Rainbow Family shows up to camp out and enjoy 'nature'.  After 25,000 folks camp out for a few weeks, there is not much nature left when they leave.

Though in fairness, every once in a while there are a number of them that do stay behind and do the best to clean up.

Back when my dad was working Code Enforcement for the county (in our area, county code enforcemeny can be dangerous.. running into meth labs was common) he ran into a fellow that lived in a shanty sort of tree house* that used doughboy pool liners as a fence for his property.

The dude was a little off and had legally changed his name to Lord Lightning Amen. My best friend's dad worked for the water district and knew Mr. Amen as well. He was apparently a bit of a local celebrity.

I should add that this was in Riverside county in Southern Ca with a population well north of 2.5 million people. Even with that, there are some deliverance-esque areas in the county that are scary.

* Dad has also inspected tree houses that were palaces, fwiw.

I think people like this in society are great, although I do have to agree with him that fame is vile in general. Most folks react negatively to anything that stands out or different. I think the main point of hermits like this is not to go out looking for them, or to purposely disturb their isolation. They're out there for their own reasons, and they're not bothering anyone - so leave them be.

While they don't go as far as this guy, you come across many similar types around the islands of the Salish Sea. Most people would qualify them as hippies or eccentrics, but I see most of them as independent people who don't want anything to do with the consumer based rat-race. I find that lifestyle admirable.

This guy seems to have a lot of attributes of an introverted version of John Muir. I think it would be interesting to randomly come across him on my travels and chat for a little while. I may not want to live his lifestyle, but I think I could learn an interesting perspective.
 
2014-01-07 12:45:19 PM
Obviously I should hate this guy because...um...stupid hippies!
