Meet Jack English, a 93-year-old legend who lives in a cabin isolated deep in the Ventana Wilderness, California.
While on a hunting trip he learned that an old homestead was put up for auction by the estate of a childless heiress. He put a bid on the property and 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.

This man has a beautiful soul. I can only hope to have this kind of outlook at his age. I feel like more and more of the people I get to know wish we weren’t doing 90% of the things we do in this society. It would be nice to have an escape and to remember that how you spend your life is your choice.
