but if that is all he truly did then .........


And there it is there! I would be looking for disappearances
and unsolved murders in the immediate area at least for the period
of time this guy was out there. And everytime he stole something
he was having something to do with society. Thieves aren't incredible
thier G-D lazy.

I have to disagree with you.

The people you knew were not hermits.

Hermits live in solitude and the guy in this story lived in solitude. He simply wanted to live and die alone.

He was a thief and admits it was wrong, but if that is all he truly did then .........


The guy next to our farm never went out and nobody came to visit him. He was not like the guy living next to the old strawberry field who went to town on his own once every couple of months. Both these guys had permission to take potatoes out of our field and also strawberries if they wanted some for themselves. The one by the lower field came to visit us occasionally at the strawberry shack, the other guy never went out to see anyone, he dug his potatoes when nobody was around. He didn't take that much, maybe five bushels a year. We left some potatoes in the fields when we were following the potato machine, they were gone in the morning. But it was not stealing, the old guy was kind of a severe introvert but he was honest. He was more of a hermit than the guy from Copper Harbor, that guy you saw once in a while.

So what is a Hermit, doesn't a person who has left society permanently qualify? There were a few of these hermits up in the Copper Country. Regular older Finns would go out once a month for something, living on their old farms. They are not hermits, they are regular people.

To be honest I don't believe he did anything other than steal as he admitted to.

As far as other crimes do you not think the police would also have considered those things and looked into the possibility? This isn't breaking news by any means.

There is no way I can categorize the guy as lazy. He may be a little crazy, but I would never call him lazy. I also think the guy who set out to catch him doing midnight drills is a little nutz as well, but that is another story.

Anyway, lazy people do not live in a tent at 20 below getting up night after night to pace back and forth to simply stay alive. They would either stay in bed and die or go back into society to collect welfare.

So what is a Hermit


Are you saying that you haven't actually looked up the definition?

Would you believe a seriously introverted narcissist?
How bout the blacksheep in a family of preppers?

We simply disagree on that matter then.


You should know me enough by now that I tend to look up literal definitions of things.

This was a wonderful story, but I would have liked it better had he not been mean to the guy at the end. That was hurtful. He could have told a little white lie.

And what did you learn in 27 years? "Get enough sleep". I found that remark annoying.

That's the same way i see society only i've been forced to endure it.

I agree, i too wish society would see how crappy and complex the world has become.

I would call that an over-glorification of a man's life that left no mark on civilization except as a common thief.

I have to say his feats are amazing. I mean living alone on the woods for almost 30 years is impressive. Most people if they were alone would probably go insane.


His feats are on the ends of his legs.


Naww, idk. I thought this was a different take on the other homeless guy who lived in the woods, and would steal. People said he's a punk, thief and should be arrested. He stole, after all.. Personally, being self sufficient would be a lot better than taking from others. I cannot judge however...

I can say, that I am rather perturbed by the image of the 'officers' and this guy... how can people charged with enforcing justice be allowed to let go so much, do they not have training? It seems all too common to see this..

Awesome. Story of the week. I relate because i don't have friends. And don't care to have any friends. And don't care to be apart of this society either.

I can't in my wildest dreams imagine having to live like that. He obviously had issues. I think it is sad that he was so alone, yet he liked it that way.

Well at least in a shtf scenario he'll know what to do. Most people living in his situation would have died.

Thanks for a great read!
I'll admit that there have been times when walking into the woods seemed like the answer.
I find it incredibly sad that he's been forced back into this society. I guess we have no room in our society for hermits.

Yet the irony is hermits wouldn't die so easily in a shtf scenario. If I were you I would ask for advice on what to do if shtf. In fact, in a shtf scenario it would be our best interest to ally ourselves with hermits.
