Exactly!! Lived in an abandoned camper converted bus, I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did. Between near hypothermia and severe starvation, he was too weak to even get out of bed!!

I did not care to see the movie, so don't know the whole story, but in my mind he was just another tragic example of a splash of bleach in the gene pool. Am I wrong?

The movie title was "Into the Wild" or something like that?

I watched that a couple of years ago. He eats some kind of poisonous potatoe that makes him delirious and unable to keep down and food eventually starves to death. Death by potatoe. I liked that fact that it was an adventurist movie, but a little too hippy at times.

Poisonous potato? Major suckage.

I'll need to watch it, I guess. Thought he died of natural stupidity...

He did eat a poisonous root that he had mistaken for one that was fine to eat. The pages in some book stuck together so the pic of the poisonous root was on the first page and when he looked to see if it was edible, he got the info about a different root. I think it was based on a true story, probably loosely based. The part about his mom being the trailer park drunk whore was probably true, but do not quote me on that. Or was that a different movie?

I have been thinking of doing much the same but not that far north. I figured if I was to take a crossbow and kill some deer and the like I could survive for a long time in the forests. Of course I would have to eat meat all the time. I would not have any thing to do either...I guess I would probably go insane after a while but still maybe it is worth the risk. What do you think? If I was for some reason in danger of being killed would not it be worth a try?!

Heimo's Arctic Refuge: Full Length - Far Out | VBS.TV

Story of a man and his wife who live in NE Alaska year round. They lived there before the area became an refuge and got grandfathered in to live there. Only two people in an area the size of South Carolina. Host and crew are non outdoorsy so it makes for some interesting moments.
