Dick Proenneke's Alone in the Wilderness was on this AM. What an amazing documentary and amazing guy. If you have never seen it this guy lived alone in Alaska for >30 yrs starting with not much more than some hand tools and a stove. He built his cabin and supplied most of his needs with his own wits and skill. All the while he documented his progress and the local wildlife with a 16mm camera. He lived alone at his cabin at Twin Lakes until he 82. It is a remarkable complilation of film and worth a look if you have a chance. Now I'm inspired to find some place to hike and be "alone" today. Maybe Fire Island Nat Seashore.
