Brooks Rd Reservoir Today

Hiked Brooks Rd Reservoir today. Meet Nick, a man whom  I meet on a few ocassions out here over the years. I believe he lives here in the woods, he is 65 and has been living this way since he was 40..  I have meet several other people over the years in the wood that are living in the wood for reasons I do not know. One had a  very interesting way of making his shelters.  It was a Indian style TP made with long tree branches and tarps which can be purchased at any hardware store. This TP had a wood burning stove built into it and wood pallets on the floor so the living space was not directly on the dirt floor.  It was about 20 feet high and 20 feet diameter, pretty big. I’m not sure why anyone would want to live this way but it seems there are a lot of people doing it… There labeled as homeless people but that is not exactly true, the actually chose to live this way, why I do not know…  There are some pictures and the GPS stats of this hike below.
