Richard Aiken was obviously an intellectual person. He rarely took risks, but when he purchased an old wood cabin, people doubted his reasoning. The cabin was in shambles. The exterior was made out of rotting wood. And the inside? Well, there wasn't much to it. But Richard saw it differently, and as he finished putting his love into it, his neighbors were green with envy. And you can definitely see why!

It's easy to be impressed by Richard Aiken. Not only did he have two doctorates and a degree in medicine, but he was also a published author! Needless to say, he's achieved great things. But there was a hidden side to Richard. A part of him was dying to live outdoors. Richard was attuned to nature, and his one dream left everyone in shock. No one expected this brilliant man to have this goal in mind.

Richard was dreaming of living in the wild. He was a naturalist right down to his core. He loved the outdoors and he practiced a strict vegan lifestyle. He was being called to the wild. Richard's love of nature had caused his family concern. They supported him, of course, but to a certain extent. They grew anxious when he announced his dream of living in the woods, but for a good reason.

Richard's family thought about how dangerous it could be living in the woods. Since Richard would be retiring there, he would be a bit older. What if there was an emergency? His family was anxious just thinking about it. But Richard was persistent and knew that he had to embrace his inner wild child. But there was another problem on the horizon. A serious problem, that would cause him to question it all.

Richard had always wanted to retire into the wilderness. He even called himself an "old hillbilly." But one thing seemed to always be in his way: money. It could be quite pricey to build a cabin in the middle of nowhere, and buying some land wasn't exactly cheap, either. Richard had relented to these facts for quite some time. Then one day, a random act of kindness changed Richard's life.
