The Strange & Curious Tale of the Last True Hermit

This is a fascinating read! Thanks, Bo!

The only thing that I would say is, “What makes anyone so sure this is the last true hermit? A true hermit, for sure, but the only reason we know about him is that he got caught stealing. Who’s to say there aren’t many more such hermits?”

  1. I have heard of other “break and enter” hermits like this. There was a famous one in Alaska as I recall. No doubt there are others doing their thing as we speak. Bo

  2. Well, now that I think about it the Alaskan hermit was just some guy on the run from the law hiding out in a derelict barn for a long time – not a true philosophical hermit.

    Now I am reminded of the “ornamental hermits” that big English garden estates used to hire for the entertainment of visitors:

    Why am I not surprised that I have been contemplating buying that very same deck you referenced? 🙂 I love my Robin Wood deck which I have had for 20+ years but sometimes I want something a little different.
