[ Heimo Korth is the last man standing in 19 million acres of Alaskan wilderness. His neighbors are polar bears and caribous. Say good bye to
civilization and see how they do it in the arctic circle on the last frontier in America.
In 1980, Jimmy Carter established the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the Alaskan Interior, cutting off 19 million acres of prime boreal wilderness
from the mitts of fur trappers, oil tycoons, and would-be lodge owners alike. Only six families of white settlers were grandfathered in and allowed to

The point of my thread is this. What skills mentally, would a human being truely have to acquire , and quickly , to survive in a world , without
the presence of a single soul around.

What things would you do to occupy your time to keep your self sane in a vacuum of isolation.
