On Nat Geo. This guy lives in the woods up on the SolDuc. Kind of a odd duck but certainly entertaining. Check it out.

he teaches classes on shapeshifting.  A guy I was fishing with on the Hoh this summer described this guy to me, said he appeared into his camp and was eyeballing his stuff.  Said he threw the guy a hot dog and told him to git.  I've yet to see this guy.  there is another guy like him that is called the mushroom man.  He wanders around the rainforest looking for new species of mushrooms.

He is certainly a very different guy. Watched the show the other night. He climbs into hollow logs to sleep. Runs around the rain forest in his bare feet.  Not quite sure what to think of the show.  :dunno:

I read about him in the Longview paper this morning. If the guy is happy and not causing harm to anyone, it's a good thing. We should all strive to do things that make us happy and more connected to the Earth.   :hello:

Must be the guy we saw years ago at the upper Queets campground. It's in the middle of nowhere 13 miles in. At night sitting around a camp fire in the middle of winter with no other campers or people seen all day. This guy walks out of the woods & asks us if we want some ice cream.  :yike: Where the heck did he come from & how does he have ice cream that's not melted?

Did he try to lure you into the brush? Maybe he thought you had a Purdy mouth

I very curious if he is our old neighbor we called Mountain Man Mick. Need to ask my Mom if she remembers the last name. In the 70's we lived on Finn Hill and had a neighbor who was a Vietnam Vet who spent much of his off time in a cabin somewhere. I remember he had a mean goat and lots of furs he tanned at home. He'd buy some of our rabbit furs when we got them back from the tannery and turkeys we'd bring home from Grandpas farm in Finley.

I don't know if it's him or not. My Brother was sort of puzzled by it too. He remembers him better but can't remember what he looked like then.

Just saw this show lastnight for the first time. I thought it was prett entertaining.  The guy is a little off but he seems to have a funny personality. After I watched the show it got me thinking how many members on here have come across him in the woods? He went to a guy that hand makes his own bows and I also wondered if anyone knew the bow maker?? Can't remember his name or where he was from. Cool show though check it out.

The show is a joke if you are familiar with the Hoh and some of the other areas they show in the filming. I wont ruin it for those of you who are enjoying it but lets just say I am dissapointed that Natl Geographic would portray it like they have. The shot of Mick spreading his dads ashes way up in the " Highlands of the Hoh" is actually about 30 feet off of the road up the S Fork of the Hoh and Doc Holmquists cabin that Mick hikes to dragging a cedar burl behind himself is actually on the Sol Duc not the Hoh and is more than 20 miles away! I realize they have to spice it up to get an audience but I didnt realize how far they would go to do that. nwhunter

Been hermit types living on the westend for years. Ask some of the locals they'll tell you.

 :yeah:  Or ask any of the deputies.  They have to deal with all kinds of squatters or hermits raiding gardens and orchards.  Some of the deputies in the past have said if you're going to be out on the west end they highly recommend packing.  Said they deal with some oddballs out there that even make them wonder.  Seems that the weirdest of the weird like to gravitate toward Clallam Bay.   :dunno:

I watched it last night and had to turn it off.  He looks like a guy we saw wandering around the Queets but the stuff they showed on the program looked kinda dumb to me.   :dunno:

I merely said it was entertaining. I read up on the guy. Its clear he does not live in the woods as they portray. Im sure he roams around up there but its scripted, I dont care what the producer says.

This joker was in the penninsula news. A forest manager says he's got a house in branderberry lots. The guy is too clean to be livin in the woods full time,

Those knee high moccasins he is wearing in some of the article photos are custom made and run some where between $480 to +$600 a pair FYI

Probably a current or former Ramster would be my guess  - he did live in Yelm and kind of fits with a lot of those folk.  :twocents:
