    What a tale. The part that struck me was he hadn't seen himself in a mirror in over 20 years. Wow.

    What I find remarkable is how he survived all of those winters without the warmth of campfires. I guess he kept warm by hovering over those propane stoves. I wonder if on those really cold nights he would snuggle up in a bed inside one of those camps he would steal from.

    Why is Knight being penalized by his bail being increased because of the agendas of others who may want to bail him out?

    Peculiar.

    A really well written article about the Hermit from GQ mag. Very interesting read from the back ground to visits in jail a journalist tries to find out why he lived in the woods and how he survived. Pictures of his camp included... He eventually got out of jail and moved in with his mother. He has to keep a job or go to school.

    It talks about that in the article. He would fatten himself up before winter then he would go to sleep at 7:30 Pm and wake up at 2 AM. At 2 he would walk around the camp briskly, and warm some snow with his propane for water. He would be awake during the coldest part of the night.


    Here is a you tube video (there is even a song about him).... from the NY Times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxiym71TlBI


    Here is a video of just the song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDd_0rvKj_s
