We started talking about 16mm movie cameras some how and he mentioned he use to film some and made a movie. It would have been nice to have seen it then and know that he was the one that made did this project at that time. We would have talked more. I know I had this feeling of him longing to be in the bush. Good luck to sir wherever you are now. 🌲🌲

Mike Gustafson : 😎 Have enjoyed the DVDs over the years after first seeing one broadcast as a special on the PBS station from Duluth MN! Great story, interesting guy, nice legacy! 👍🤙

San Ansa : 01:40 75 years old and never been sick, not even a cold. No surprise living in that environment. I remember when I used to work in New York City, once a year I used to get very sick, including the flu. I started having to get a flu shot as well every year, which I would get a reaction from. It's been 15 years since I worked in NYC, and I have never been sick since then and I don't need a flu shot any more either. I didn't change a damn thing with my diet, etc. It was being around all those those people in close quarters (elevator, subways, etc) that would get me sick. Not worth it, the stress, etc.

Carl Bowman : This was an incredible man. I've watched this video for years and can't get enough of it. When I was young this is exactly what I wanted to do. I started to n several times but never did, something I've always regreted. Back then you could claim land and build on it and it was yours. You can't do that today.

Article58 : A man at peace with himself. A man who builds what he needs. A man who can stand his own company.

annamal pete : Just watching this brings me closer to the peace and solitude of nature. Thank you Dick for this escape for a small time.
