Meet Jack English, a 93-year-old homesteader who lives in an isolated cabin in the Ventana Wilderness. He learned about this old homestead being put up for auction by the estate of a childless heiress while on a hunting trip in the Ventana Wilderness. He took a chance and placed a bid on the property and guess what he won. On the land he built a small cabin using materials from the land and milling trees by hand. When his wife passed away, Jack effectively left “society” and moved to the cabin full time.
“It’s five miles from the nearest road and that is the main reason he says he bought the land.”
What a nice man …they don't make men like him anymore…
At the time of this writing I believe he should be about 95 years old based on when the Youtube was originally published. It is not the age that is important it is the fact that he is homesteading in the wilderness in these times of a very busy society.
