“What did Knight do for living? He lived for a living.”

Christopher Knight decided he was tired of life as he knew it.  He decided to quit his job and wanted to get lost.  And get lost he did.  He spent the next 27 years living alone in the woods.  He broke into houses for food, batteries, clothes, sleeping bags, books, and magazines.  He evaded many searches for him. Finkel visits Knight in jail to try to get to know him better.  He is not open to having close relationships but allows Finkel to ask questions.  Finkel tries to become Knights friend but they only end up staying acquaintances.  I believe if Knight wouldn’t have been caught breaking into a camp he would have most likely died in the woods.
