    I was home for Christmas in the first time in about 3 years. I was watching Public Television- they were doing their fund raising. The played "Alone in the Wilderness" about 10 times while I was there. Dick Proenneke was a one of a kind- that's for sure. I have never seen anyone hand hewn logs so quick and effortlessly. Anyone read any of the books based on his journal or seen any of the other documentaries made about him? I was contemeplating picking some up.

    I think that documentary helped realign my priorities and start thinking about my own homestead.
