Here's how one family survived in total isolation for 40 years1/31/2013
If you've ever thought about taking your family and running off to the woods, free from the hassles of modern-day living, check out this fascinating look at how one Russian family survived on the Siberian taiga for four decades.

They paid a high price for their freedom, such as social isolation, being shut off from the news and family members dying young. By the time geologists found them in 1978, the Lykovs had had no contact with the outside world for over 40 years. [Source]
