The Bug Out King - The North Woods Hermit

Imagine spending 27 years or so living in the woods of Maine and having only a single interaction during which you spoke to another human being in all that time. Then imagine that said interaction was a single word - hello. That was the reported life of Christopher Knight, the alleged North Pond Hermit, a man who lived in the woods of Maine for all that time after pretty much vanishing off the face of the earth at age 19 in 1986. There are lots of videos out there about him, his camp and how law enforcement finally caught him and there are sure to be more.

Here is a video, followed by some links to more videos and to articles about him. If all of this is true, he may well have earned the title of: The Bug Out King. I can see it now, in this day of preppers and people fearing Armageddon, not only is an autobiography forthcoming but so too are at least a few how to bug out guides. Amazingly enough, he said the last major event he remembered hearing about, before bugging out, was Chernobyl.

Yes folks, The Bug Out King  is now facing $250,000 bail and the possibility of being charged with about 1,000 burglaries. My bet though is he gets off with a slap on the wrist and then makes millions selling his story from which, of course, he will pay restitution. Maybe then, with some of the rest of the money, he will buy himself a large house in which to live the rest of his days.

All the best,
Glenn B
