A man who has given up civilization to live off the land near Forks is the subject of a TV series on the National Geographic Channel called “The Legend of Mick Dodge.”
Dodge grew up in Forks and is a Vietnam veteran who served in the Marines.
The News Tribune reports he was working as a Fort Lewis mechanic in the 1990s when he decided to survive in the wild in the Hoh rain forest.
The show was filmed by Seattle-based Screaming Flea Productions. By the end of filming, crew members had grown beards and were walking around barefoot.
