Back in the late ’80s, a 20-year-old decided to give up everything he owns to live a carefree life in the woods. Based on his impulsive decision, Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts. He drove until his tank was empty, the final destination, “Maine,”; where he vanished in the woods.
Being an abrupt decision, Christopher was now living in temporary shelters with no exact plan for survival. He had no kit for hunting or any other food supply. Soon enough, he veered to stealing as it was the only option. The man never hurt anyone physically, or neither took an ample supply from their stack.
Christopher occasionally took batteries, flashlights, food, and also books. He would lurk around the cabins to record people’s routines. So, he can map out a plan to steal from these special needs people living out in the small town.
He was later arrested when he tripped a surveillance sensor. People were so fascinated by the man they called “The Loner,” Michael Finkel even wrote a book, The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit.
