Stumbled across this dude recently. I'm not one for proclaiming a king of /out/ but he's definitely contender.

>lived alone for nearly thirty years in the mountains of Alaska in a log cabin he had constructed by hand near the shore of Twin Lakes.

The full thing isn't available on youtube, but i found a torrent.

Here's a Google Drive link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3jQi-AsNnWVXzBjbFNWdzBkdXc

>>612261
Yep, he was hard core, I hear a lot MGTOW's trying to claim him for their own.

I'm not sure I'd be strong enough to spend as much time alone in the wilderness as he did but I sure would like the chance.
>>
>>612261
Holy shit you fucking newfag. Do you really think /out/ isnt aware of dick Proenneke?
Please next tell me about Ray Mears, he isnt discussed much either.
>>
>>612267
posted DL link for three amazing /out/ themes films. Why are you fucking whining you faggot? And why did you bump this thread if you think it's so irrelevant?

Head DP is a pretty great fella. My vote goes for Daniel Carter Beard. It's not a competition, I just really appreciate Dan Beard because he's had such an impact on me.
>>
>>612267

Yea, in America people like >>612284 worship dick.

You're using the word 'edgy' as though you know what it means.

This. Back in the mid 2000's i "donated" $75 bucks to pbs to get the DVD and book.

He was an amazing person but the one thing everyone forgets is he got supplies shipped in by plane.

still based

I don't believe in piracy and if you support Prennecke you shouldn't download this.

Well I do believe in piracy and if you support Prennecke you should download this and learn what it means to be human and live without society's stupid fucking rules.
>>
>>612548
I did actually mull this over philosophically before posting. it's an interesting debate.

Ultimately I settled on posting this because
- People downloading this weren't going to buy it in the first place
- Spreading his message and raising public knowledge about him might well result in sales rising - there are lots of examples about piracy or free release improving sales, especially for old forgotten media (monty python are a good example)
- We're on /out/ to learn/be inspired. These documentaries are amazingly inspiring and educational. It's top quality content and this is a great board.
>>
>>612578
>might well result in sales rising
The man is dead, he will never see any of this money.
Your church of sales ensmallens your character .
>>
>>612583
I guess I want it to be commercially viable for this sort of stuff to continue being produced.

If this show starts selling like hot cakes, maybe we can expect to see some wilderness documentaries of similar quality in the future. seems extremely unlikely doesn't it :(
>>
>>612596
>wilderness documentaries
When you count on the commercial media for these things you end up with "Naked and Alone".
You should stop being a person that needs constant entertainment and go /out/ and live your life.
Our new entertainment based culture is shameful.
>>
>>612601
lol at the assumptions you've made. Are you maybe projecting your own frustration about never getting /out/ on me? Because you missed the mark there bud

Of course when I am inside I appreciate having good documentaries that align with my interests available to view. If left to shitty production companies for shitty channels we get shitty programming. NPR and BBC are still good.
>>
>>612617
>NPR and BBC
These two sources do not respond to market pressure.
>>
>>612620
not in the conventional sense, but do you think that either would air a programme that they didn't think would have an audience?
>>
>>612622
Yes, they always create content that is geared toward a much smaller audience, the intelligentsia if you like. The culture has historically been to create the best product they can and let it find its audience. This is exactly the opposite of the private sector.

I heard that motherfucker had like 27 dicks.
>>
>>612650
It's a fact: his birth name was actually Dicks Proenneke
>>
>>612655
Its true. He literally had to leave society because of the army of whores that were trying to touch his penises all the time.
They would give him no peace.
>>
>>612261
does he have to buy land to do this or what? Surely the rights to chop down all those trees to build a cabin can't be cheap.

Mad jelly of him though, I'd love to do the same but with a wife and kids too.
>>
>>612666
Land in Alaska is very cheap
>>
>>612553
>respect his memory by giving money to PBS

top goy
>>
>>612668
how do you pay the tax on it if you're just living off the land though?
>>
So just like a good 60% of people in northern countries lived only 100 years back.
>>
>>612670
Sell fur. Set up hunting tours. Crafting.

>tfw watching this and the dude clearly isn't MGTOW

you fucking idiots really think someone like this is MGTOW
>>
>>612504
>ahead of his time
you mean ahead of the millions of nomads who did the same shit for the entire existence of humanity.

only thing he did that was ahead of his time was wildlife photography and videography.
>>
>>612850

MGTOW literally just means becoming a lifelong bachelor.
Thats it.
>>
>>612853
except. it doesn't
>>
>>612854
Actually it does
>>
>>612853
Actually it means:

Men
Going
Their
Own
Way
>>
>>613226
This is correct. Men going their own way and not getting married.
It has nothing to do with leaving society except to a few aspies on this board.

... Are you guys really having an "yu-huh", "nu-uh", "yu-huh", "nu-uh", "yu-huh", "nu-uh" etc argument about the semantics of some bullshit internet abbreviation?

Jesus. I thought this board was decent.
>>
>>613230
It has less to do with not getting married and more to do with not getting bullied by feminist thinking.
>>
>>612557
watch out for that edge
>>
>>613258
Not edgy anon, just want to live without being henpecked

I am so sorry anon, I hope you are able to excape someday.

Did yoiu make a babby?
>>
>>613915
the point is, no-one was buying their DVDs. When they released their stuff for free, sales increased: http://www.theguardian.com/media/pda/2009/feb/26/monty-python-dvd-sales-soar
>>
on the subject of dick, when he built his house he used some kind of plastic for the roof. I wondered if he could have made pine tar and made shingles and coat them with the tar... would that work?
>>
>>615274
>plastic for the roof.
I dont think thats true .
Are you sure it wasnt Mastic ?
>>
>>615383
He used a roll of barrier, watch the movie
>>
>>615274
Humans lived with leaky roofs until very recently.
Pretty hard to have one not leak using just found materials.
Part of his genius was knowing what actually worked.
>>
>>615383
He used polyethylene sheets. Me mentioned something like "i feel bad for using polyethelyne because it's not a real wilderness camping material; but i am convinced it will work better" he did cover it with moss afterwards.
>>
>>615406
Chinks have been using terra cotta u channel shingles for millenia, water proof and effective.
>>
He was 51 when he did that. /out/, I watch him and I'm like I couldn't carry a large log and I'm 24
>>
>>616258
You balance it on your traps bruh, not that hard. Don't trip though easy to wreck your back.
>>
>>612670
you dont. Alaska has no property tax.
>>
>>616237
where is ol' dick gonna find what he needs to make terra cotta shingles?
>>
>>616442
when the ground up here thaws in summer, which it does if you're south of the arctic circle, you can dig just about anywhere and find some good quality clay. Add water, shape them, bake them, lay them. Its surprisingly easy to make shingles out of clay you dig up here. Could also use large chunks of tree bark if you cant find clay.
>>
>>613247
and even more to do with being a lonely neckbeard
>>
>>616438
How much is land in alaska? Still cheap?
>>
>>612521
did people forget that? because in the documentary it makes no effort to hide that fact.
>>
>>616438
>no property tax in Alaska
are you mentally retarded? yeah he was probably in one of the municipalities that doesn't levy property taxes but there are sure as hell property taxes. it takes 5 seconds to find that shit on the official Office of the State Assessor for Alaska's website
>>
>>612666
He bought the land and paid the taxes with his savings back in the 1960s. He worked his entire adult life and was very studious about putting money away.

He left the cabin and the parcel of land it was on to the Federal government in his will, it's now part of a National Park.
>>
>>617052
Calm down, stranger. We're all friends here.
>>
Bumping so more people can see this and download the doc.
>>
>>612267
>>612284
Don't mind him, he's just an angsty 20 somefin who works at a department store with an outdoors section who posts on 4chan.

>spending this much time on /out/ instead of actually being outside

If I had to guess at why you're angry it's because OP lives the life this board is dedicated to instead of complaining all day about muh board culture?

kat has the 4 pack of the docu in one torrent file
