Question by Nives N: Is it illegal to move to Alaska and just build a cabin in the wilderness without any formal documentation?
There was this guy named Richard Proenneke, in the late 1960’s he moved to Alaska. He trekked into the wilderness miles away from civilization and built himself a log Cabin by hand. He lived there for 35 years in peace, alone, in the wilderness without having any interactions with civilization with the exception of a pilot who brought him supplies. I’ve been told that this is illegal by today’s laws and regulations in Alaska – and that you can be fined big time if they catch you doing it. Does anyone know if this is true?

Even if it was illegal, they will never find you anyways.
