John have you see Dave Proenneke, Alone in the Wilderness Documentary? It was on PBS the other day and it was pretty cool how he build his log cabin with just hand tools, no power where he was at.

I have seen the program and one of my brothers said it reminded him of me a bit (living in the woods, building my own cabin) so he got me the DVD.

Saw the video on PBS several times, very interesting film, you can't help but get sucked in and watch the whole thing, even if you started out surfing the channels...got me twice...lol,..Being a carpenter myself made it "extra special", also being at the age now (50's) that he was when he started his new life, makes a person feel small. Love that indoor plumbing, don't think I could willingly leave it behind..lol
