The thing that strikes me the most about this story isn’t just that this guy decided to live in a tree for 50 years although that is pretty crazy, but that he’s been up there since his son was 5 years old. Some of the earliest memories I have are of being 5 years old, so that probably means that for pretty much this kid’s entire life his dad has lived up in a tree, refusing to come down and I would imagine missing out on just about everything to do with his son growing up. That’s insane, especially since by his own admission, the fight that led to this whole mess wasn’t even over anything of any consequence. I’ll never understand people.
