Screening Movie & e-Entertainment (15-02-2014, Saturday)

The movie, titled, “Alone in the Wilderness”.

This “Alone in the Wilderness” is a 60 minutes movie about one man, Richard Proenneke, who after retirement at the age of 50 in 1967, decided to build a cabin on the shore of Twin Lakes up in the Alaska mountain wilderness. The first summer he scouted for the best cabin site, cut and peeled the logs he would need for his cabin. He returned the next summer to finish the cabin where he lived for over 30 years with nature.  Only when his health was failing him that he returned back to civilization and lived the remainder of his life with his brother in Hemet, California. He died in April 2003 at the age of 86. He left his cabin and legacy to the National Park Service and it remains a popular visitor attraction in the still remote Twin Lakes region.

You can view with 360° perspective, the surrounding cabin site and interior of the cabin by visiting –

The Movie …
“Thousands have had such dreams, but Richard Proenneke lived them. He found a place, built a cabin, and stayed to become part of the country. This video “Alone in the Wilderness” is a simple account of the day-to-day explorations and activities he carried out alone, and the constant chain of nature’s events that kept him company.” – Sam Keith

e-Entertainment – it is an IT skill to get yourself “entertained” through surfing the Internet. Though certain sites (especially those marketable movies) require a small rental fee for viewing, but there are also a lot of short videos, also entertaining, out there for FREE viewing. I will also touch on the meaning of “Smart TV” and “Home Intelligence”.
