I'm going to forego the moral commentary but that was a very interesting story. I'm amazed he could not only survive that long by himself in the
wild, but avoid getting caught or even noticed for that long aside from a few things going missing. On some level I'm jealous of a man who could
carry on doing what he did while remaining healthy and somewhat sane -- I say somewhat because it's arguable that a sane person would attempt any of
this in the first place. Almost 30 years, with apparently no serious injuries, broken bones, animal attacks, hell illness from bad food or water...
On another level he can keep it, I like my air conditioning and I need my internet access. I'm from the South, when it gets a little below freezing I
can safely consider myself out of my element and an unhappy camper so to speak. Northern winter out in the woods? NOPE.
To be honest I felt sorry for him being sent to prison regardless of his crimes, and being forced back into society. I don't blame him at all for not
wanting to be a part of it... But (okay so I'll have just a bit of moral commentary) IMO he should learn to survive without stealing, and then he
should be left alone to live as he desires without fear of "being caught". But that probably won't happen. Guess that's the moral rub there, he
should already know how to survive without stealing after being out there so long, and it makes me wonder why he chose the path he did. My guess is
he'll never tell.
And yeah, the book / movie deal that would come out of this if he were interested would probably make someone rich.
Thanks for sharing!
