Topic: 27 Years as a Hermit in the Maine Woods
Message: Posted by: Woland (Apr 13, 2013 05:33PM)
Somehow a young man decided to move into the woods . . . 27 years ago. He appears to have lived absolutely alone the whole time, and only once exchanged a word or two with another person. He survived by burglarizing camps in the area.

Good for him. Except for the burglary. Just living his life.

Bizarre story. It's like his hard drive was formatted and nothing was reinstalled.

The one unforgivable sin is trying to escape the matrix.

He must be barking mad.

Although I agree he is likely mad, and certainly a serial burglar who knows that his way of life was wrong, his faculties were enough intact to permit him to survive in solitude for 27 years.

The one unforgivable sin is trying to escape the matrix but being willing to steal from those who are within the matrix at the same time.

Do you prefer walking sticks with the tree bark left on them or the stripped off sort?

The one unforgivable sin is trying to escape the matrix but being willing to steal from those who are within the matrix at the same time, because then you can no longer be stolen from.

I strip off the bark from only part of the sticks, when I make my own. I prefer in general a stout blackthorn stick with the bark and short branchlet spikes left on, although makes some of the traditional Bataireacht moves rather more difficult than they would be with a smooth stick.
