Maine hermit who lived in woods since '86 arrested.

LINK

Christopher Knight went into the central Maine wilderness 27 years ago.

He built a hut on a slope in the woods, where he spent his days reading books and meditating.

There he lived, re-entering civilization only to steal supplies from camps under the cover of darkness. During those nearly three decades, he spoke just once to another person – until he was arrested during a burglary last week.

So the best way you two together can come up with to describe this guy is creep. He's been in the woods for 30 years.

Creep, creepy, etc. All over used.

So he just got lucky and the pair he stole worked for him? Who would leave glasses outside of their tent?

Interesting. Also surprised that he is overweight.

His eyes must be shot to shite by now if he's been wearing the same prescription for 30 years.

Who among us hasn't dreamt of hermitting while dealing with life's stresses?

quote:

Hughes said he arrested Knight as he carried meat and other food from Pine Tree Camp in Rome, which serves children and adults with disabilities.

Knight estimated he had broken into the camp more than 50 times over the years and taken thousands of dollars of meat, beer, coffee and other supplies.

Yeah, especially give the season. It said he would put on weight before winter to avoid having to steal/leave camp. He thinks he has the diabeetus though.

This is ripe for a SNL Maine justice skit.
