We live in a rural New England house on a wooded lot and we don't actually know a whole lot about taking care of trees. Other than 'you should call someone and learn about taking care of trees' what will be useful for us to know? [more inside]

I saw this film on television in the 70s when I was young; it was broadcast sometime before 1979. Some people are stranded after a snow storm. At one point they discover a car in the snow, and when they look inside the car they see the people in it were frozen to death. I think someone cried out, "Oh, no, it's the professor!" (or something like that). At another point in the film they come across a cabin in the woods and try to open a can of something they find, but they have no can opener. The film was in color, so please don't suggest something in black & white. It may have been made for TV or it may have been an actual film; I remember there being a lot of commercials for it because we had just had the great "Blizzard of 1978" in Boston. Any help finding this film would be great! One person suggested to me it might be "The Untamed" directed by Archainbaud, but it is not that. PLEASE HELP!

I am trying to find the name of a movie I watched on TV when I was a young kid back in the 1970s. The film was about a group of people lost in a forest after a blizzard. At one point they find a car and start shouting, "It's the professor!" But when they get to the car the people inside it are frozen to death. I'm pretty sure it was a film for adults that was being broadcast on TV or it could have been made for TV.

I'm going to be in a cabin in the wilderness for three days with one of my best friends. We will each be bringing flip cameras with us.
We want to make a viral video and we're looking for ideas of what to shoot/make. Any ideas? Go wild! We're open to just about anything.
If we end up using your idea, we promise to mention your name in the credits.

Several years ago I saw a documentary on PBS about a guy who moved to the woods (Alaska, I think) and built a log cabin. He also built all of his furnishings right down to cups and dishes. The film showed him designing and constructing all of this. He lived there for most of the rest of his life. Does anyone know the name of this piece?

Did Bill Bryson and/or Stephen Katz take any photos during their Walk in the Woods
? Are they online anywhere? I'd love to see them.
