Anthanasius Kircher was the last man to know everything. The last Renaissance Man. It's cool that he proved that the tower of Babel wouldn't be possible. The tower would be so big it would tip the Earth and displace it from the center of the universe. Maybe you can catch up if you read the dude's blog:

Lots of links to weird museums.
In the summer, its nice to imagine exploring the arctic. Robert Peary was the first person to reach the north pole in 1909. He had lots of help and employed Inuit people as hunters and guides. He adopted Inuit techniques for arctic survival, such as igloo building and the wearing of furs. Peary had 8 toes amputated.
There's a great museum at Bowdoin College in Maine, Peary's alma mater. It's called the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum. It has loads of taxidermy arctic animals, polar bears, caribou, musk ox, and even a narwhal skull. There are displays of Peary's crew and his ship, the Roosevelt. There are large rotating exhibits mostly based on the Inuit people of the north. Enjoy exploring the arctic this summer!

You've been out in the woods for a long time. Do you think that its maybe time to say hello? I guess it might ruin your plans to "live off the grid." We could probably learn alot from you, though. You probably have your reasons. Maybe your magic would be gone if we met. Maybe its best that you're hiding. Good thinking.
