An interesting story about a person who spent alone almost 30 years in the woods of Maine.

I still have a challenge believing that he lived through Maine winters in an unheated tent.

Do you believe that this can be true?

I live in the area it's true and nothing to do with winter camping. Christopher Knight. It seems has been diagnosed with mental illness
What he took from Pine Tree Camp ( for special needs kids). Whole perhaps not much was still a blow to that non profit camp

As this thread has nothing to do with winter camping and all to do with actual crime and a perhaps unfortunate individual who does not know right from wrong I suggest you delete it

A person can't delete a thread after a reply has been posted.

I have moved it to the Off Topic forum.

Homeless people live on the streets of Winnipeg in the winter so I suppose it could be true.

Google Waterville Journal Christopher Knight and you will come to the conclusions that either every press outlet lies or it's true. The sad thing is that many people in Maine DO live in tents for the winter. Some have no choice

There are far too many homeless people here in Winnipeg living under the bridges and too many who die every winter due to how cold it gets here. I imagine Maine doesn't get quite as cold.
