This year occurs in Patagonia, in the southern tip of South America.

Fowler, 37, is a Vermont native who moved to Maine in the early 20s, mastering the craft of boatbuilding and in the end creating their yurt, with few contemporary amenities. He could be a devoted practitioner of a sustainable lifestyle, as well as backwoods success, and has now a YouTube channel labeled as Makery and Mischief, in which he showcases their skills.
