This guy.... THIS GUY... is amazing.
I follow the Maine cabin masters.
Good watch. Don’t know how they do for price.
Geez, my back started getting sore just watching it.
Wow. I'm gonna have to set aside some time to fully watch this.
I beam it to my tv from my laptop... it is just amazing, so ingenius.. I love how much I learned from this guy in 2 hours...
it is making me hope my kid goes to alaska to teach... I may retire a year or two early to go up and build a cabin with him.
Reminds me of Charlie Jagow building his cabin in "The Last Alaskans" by himself in the middle of the ANWR.
there is a guy outside fairbanks that calls himself like extreme alaskan, he does some cool stuff, he built a vertical log cabin, he kind of slags the 'all by myself' guys... it is odd, but he is talented.
I like Nic, he never talks.. just works and shows and teaches... no asides, just grindage... it is my favorite way to work on stuff...
I noticed he used a good mix of Tone Woods.
Love to hear his Music Room.
i love this type of stuff!
This man left civilization in 1967 at age 50 filmed himself building a cabin, kept a journal etc. I don't think he used any power tools (yes he had MAD SKILLS). http://www.dickproenneke.com/alone_in_the_wilderness.html
The book "One Man's Wilderness" and DVD "Alone in the Wilderness" are great. Amazing what this guy did with the tools he carried in.
This looks interesting.....but I don't have two hours right now to watch.
Maybe I can get in twenty or thirty minutes at a time.
I have watched it... it is fantastic.
That’s the first thing I thought of.
with our new 'life' situation, I carve out 2 hours without trouble. the other day, I carved out 4 straight hours, lay on the front room couch and read... uninterrupted, no sounds... just lay and read...
I intend to keep a lot of the new world. MORE solitude and fewer interruptions... the movie has ZERO interruptions, no commercials... just work and quiet and a tiny bit of music.
For those who haven't seen or heard his story here's a trailer for the DVD. About 4.00 minutes in he starts making handles for some tools.
yeah, Dick Proenneke was some kina man. "retired" at 50 after he almost lost his eyesight, moved out of the big city and lived out there until he was in his 80s. no power tools, not even a chainsaw. and Twin Lakes is pretty far off the beaten path. close to 300 miles off the road system. it's not even on the Lake Clark/Newhalen fly way.
the guy listed in #6 might be OK but he isn't in ANWR. first, there are no private inholdings allowed except for some natives, mostly from Kaktovic. and second.... theres no trees on the north side of the Brooks range where ANWR is. there are pockets of scrub in the hills, but nothing bigger around than you wrist. nothing but tundra once you get on the flat.
Liked that guy in the original post too. solid work
And I thought it was going to be Ancient Aliens.
