This is a really good story. For all of you out there who don’t think you can make the dream of getting away from it all a reality, check this guy out. His name is Jack English and he lives five miles from the closest road out in the Ventana Wilderness of the Los Padres National Forest.
As you watch the video, listen to what Jack says. Things like, “It’s five miles from the nearest road and that’s why I bought this. You gotta have some way to get away from this turmoil.” and “I’d rather go back than go ahead.” Nice. It just goes to show, I’m not crazy. There are other people out there like me.
If you’re interested is what’s happening to Jack today, you can read the story here.
