re: Siberian "Forest Boy" found after 16 years in wilderness (Posted on 9/10/13 at 4:08 pm to Captain Ron)
Yeah, but I remember reading that he robbed beer from a local store or something. That reduces his wilderness factor by 50%.
On a side note, I remember reading an article in Men's Journal, several years back, about these rangers (or something) leaving in the wilderness for several months. These guys seemed pretty bad ass. They were very remote and, if I recall correctly, were flown in to a landing spot and the chopper only came back several months later.
I wish I could recall more details. Would love to read more.
