The man. The Mick. The legend. After entertaining audiences with his quirky lifestyle last winter, Mick Dodge returns to National Geographic Channel tonight at 9P for an all-new season of The Legend of Mick Dodge. We’re heading back into the Pacific Northwest’s beautiful and serene Hoh Rainforest to follow the everyday life of an eccentric character whose unique brand of Zen comes from living off the land.
This season, spring is in the air and adventures are on the horizon as our legendary wild man is finally able to reconnect with his fellow forest dwellers after a long winter. With friends like Sunray, Moss Hopper, and Will of Stone, Dodge’s world is populated by a unique breed of outdoorsmen who also live life on their own terms.
Dodge finds himself in the center of the action as the return of springtime has awakened the moss-covered world of Washington state. As the warmer weather brings the wildlife of the Hoh Rainforest out of hibernation, Dodge and friends gear up for the new activities that come along with the changing season. Whether he is harvesting seasonal berries to brew a fresh batch of the Dodge Family Forest Wine or drinking maple sap straight out of a tree, Dodge finds adventure every day in the wild.
Nicknamed “the Forrest Gump of Middle Earth,” “Tree Beard,” “the Barefoot Sensei,” “the Hobbit” and “Big Foot,” Dodge lives life by his own unique philosophy. Influenced by three generations of woodsmen before him, Dodge listened to his ingrained primal instinct and ventured deep into the Hoh Rainforest, dedicating his life to the nature around him … while “dodging” modern civilization and the distractions that come with it. While he still occasionally dips back into society, his real passion in life is running through the wilderness, living life one barefoot step at a time.
As Dodge would say, “take off them shoes and see if you can keep up,” with an all new season of The Legend of Mick Dodge.
