He never eats, never drinks even water, runs around for 18 hours across freezing rivers and sleeps outside naked  in 38 degree weather, makes fire while naked with no backpack, has no visible signs of support, I mean really. Really......

even if he is a "fraud" he is still awesome to me. to all you angry people, don't take life so seriously. at the end of the day hes just an old man who loves nature...no one is perfect...

Mick Dodge is a fake in the man down episode he made maple syrup from about 1/2 a cup of maple sap....a physical impossibility to get the amount of syrup he had you would have to distill about 3 gallons of sap.

mick i think you are pretty cool. More people should be able to experience this way of life. I think people could respect and be more inclined to protect this heaven on earth if they felt the connection with nature and the surrounding environment.

how ignorantly rude for you to say those things to and about mr.dodge..if you dont like the show, don't watch it..how he lives and what he's willing to show is up to him, he's just having fun showing others how to live a possitive life..people like are the reason why he probably left to the forest in the first place..i love your show mick, keep up the good work, thanx natgeo for putting it on the tele..

Your a Gem Mick. My kids and I love your show. Its hilarious how some people take everything so serious and are so quick to pounce on everything before they know the entire story. I just laugh at that kind of managed ignorance. I hope you have a long run on Nat Geo. God Bless You!

  As a Life Member of N/G, and an avid primitive skills enthusiast, I can say with certainty, this show isn't all that truthful, has a ring of hypocrisy to it, and is misleading. Mr. Dodge, I wish you the best, but this show isn't representing you truthfully.

Youre a Joke MICK!! Plan and simple.....  I have lived in the Forest of Wash. and in the Swamps of Fla. and Staying  that Clean and Perky is B.S. and Staying so Clean and Super white  Teeth  and running around bare footed with Mancured feet and Finger nails B.S.. and Your not on Your own You depend on so, so , so many  people to get by.. That's not Living off the Land living.... Your just a Leach.. Where You Sleep at Night in  Nice 2 Bdr. House and running water??  Your  just a old man with a White Beard and Long hair.. running around ....  You are really Funny... I laugh out Loud at You ..haha.. SORRY OR EXCUSE FOR A SHOW...

What is the reference of the book Mick hands to Will as a home warming gift? Author and title. Look for the info and thanks to whom will answer me.

It's very impressive to know that the human being is really part of the environment, trees, animals, water in the original form, therefore the peace and happiness the man looking for: not in the city full of worries....

@James Canada..

dude..how ignorantly rude..mick is just having fun showing some of the stuff he goes through on a daily basis..at no time has he ever said that he lives completely without help or anything like that..you are exactly the kind of person that probably had a lot to do with him going to rain forest to live, so he doesn't have to deal with people like you.. if you don't like the show, change the channel and keep your disrespectful comments to yourself..it's completely uncalled for.. keep up the good work Mick, loveyour show.
