Grizzly Adams, my hero. Posted by Picasa

"Deep inside the forest is a door into another land, here is our life and home.
We are staying here forever in the beauty of this place all alone.
We keep on hoping that maybe there's a world where we won't have to run, and maybe there's a time to call our own, living free and harmony and majesty. Take me home, take me home." Grizzly Adams ending theme song

While other kids dreamed of being Joe Namath or OJ Simpson, I fantasized about being Grizzly Adams. I dreamed of heading into the woods, building a cabin, and of course hanging out with bears. . ... I watched this show for 2 years. I don't really remember when this show was popular but i would say it ran from about '74 to '77.

Now I do live in a log cabin in the woods and I do have a beard. No bears but my dog is named Bear. And I don't make my own clothes. Other than that there are many similarities (except that I haven't ever been falsely accused of murder and i'm not a fugitive from justice).
