BOISE - Known as the "Salmon River Caveman," Richard Zimmerman lived an essentially 19th-century lifestyle, a digital-age anachronism who never owned a telephone or a television and lived almost entirely off the land.
"He was in his home at the caves at the end, and it was his wish to die there," said Connie Fitte, who lived across the river. "He was the epitome of the free spirit."
IF EVERYONE OWNED A GUN, WOULD THERE BE ANY CRIME?
I just found this forum and have been spending an amazing amount of time here last three days. (I'm in desert southwest and temps are over 100. Time to read and study etc) I had to run over to my e-mail and activate my account when I saw this post. I grew up in Salmon, ID (and Missoula MT) and have hung out with Dug-Out Dick some. He is/was a great guy. I'm sorry to see he's gone.
