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. 🌲🌲

Todd Vanhorn Vanhorn : truly a great man....

Pete Harrison : Alaska is the place live in the world

Gun Tech. : This was better! Your previous videos were extremely over-compressed and incorrectly de-interlaced, so that you couldn't see a thing. You have still a bit to go for 2018 quality. Even though most of the footage is from 1965-1990 or so, you can prevent further video degradation by Youtube by scaling up the video to 1440p and the bitrate to 16000. If you don't know what this means, maybe someone you trust could help you? It's not a difficult operation really, but it can take some time if you have a slow computer or Internet connection.

NJtuber88 : Wow I wish I could do this....but with my skill set and physical conditioning I'd hurt myself just making plans to even visit Alaska.

Bob Winzenburg : I've seen Alone in the Wilderness many times, but I didn't see that great beach. Nice. RIP Dick. Just an old Iowa farm boy.

ziggy morris : Silence, solitude and no Donald drumpf

E30 M3 : This documentary states he has never been sick, not even a cold. An internet search shows he had rheumatic fever while in the Navy. He was given a medical discharge from service.

americanalltheway Redneck : i dont think i could live that way alone

Tony Savelli : Wow this man is genius.
