As for food, Higgenbottom's plans to hunt for his dinner have proven to be equally troublesome. "These animals, they run when you shoot at them. They move. It's not as easy as those hunting shows make it look. And even if I did hit one, I wouldn't know what to do with it if I actually wanted to eat it. Therefore, I've been subsisting on a diet of whatever I can get to grow in the permafrost. Hmmmm...turnips for dinner again tonight!"

As for advice for those considering doing what he did? "Wait till the urge passes. Stay in your suburban house and buy a canoe or something. God. If you ever think about doing something like this, don't.
"Sure, the rat race may be a drag, but at least there are other rats around you can talk to."

Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." Luke 18: 20-21
