    I've seen DP mentioned here a couple of times, thought a few here might enjoy this. I figure this should go here, because it does show him building a hearth/fireplace/chimney. :lol:

    I wish I had a 1/4 of his skillset.


    If you like these youtube vids, I highly recommend buying the DVD/book... well worth it!

    Read his book. There are so many more details than the video. His cabin was a warm 42 degrees in the winter.

    thanks for that. I've never heard of him before but I like it. Reminds me a lot of the kind of stuff I used to watch on broadcast TV in the 70's.

    The poor man never gets to watch the news and discuss politics?
    I wish that lifestyle for all of you.

    I enjoyed watching that, every time he left that cabin he had a mission and walked with such intensity,

    I like the part when he said the Caribou would be a easy shot but I like Ram meat better! And he spent 35 years in solitude but who filmed him?

    He had a camera tripod for some shots. He had his bush-pilot friend visit him every few weeks with supplies brought in on a float plane.

    It's towards the end of the Disc 1 series. I can't get over the man's skill level. He makes it look almost easy!

    I don't know his previous experience but starting to build the fireplace that late in the year in Alaska would have freaked me out. I know it took him time to collect the rock, etc. but he must have done that actual building of one a time or two before this....otherwise he is just one of those guys that does everything right on the first try.
