Twenty-five years ago, Mick Dodge left the modern world behind. He ventured deep into the Hoh Rainforest in the Pacific Northwest, kicked off his shoes (literally!) and made his home in the trees, hidden in the moss. He was only rarely seen by the outside world, until he agreed to let our film crew record his unusual life.
Premiering Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, at 10:00 and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, National Geographic Channel follows the wild life of Mick Dodge, a quirky character whose unique brand of Zen comes from living off the land and off the grid, in the new series The Legend of Mick Dodge. Every day in Mick’s life is a different adventure; some days are spent hanging in the trees, others are spent bedding down with elk, building a mountain-man raft or running barefoot for miles. Nights are spent in tree stumps.

Legendary wild man Mick Dodge is hungry for lunch. Normally when out in the wild, Mick snacks on an assortment of berries, nuts and plants that are native to the Hoh Rainforest of Washington state. But after searching relentlessly, the barren forest yields limited options. Mick's growling stomach prompts him to venture into town. However, he soon finds that this journey will be no easy feat. In search of money, Mick is forced to be resourceful.
