These days downshifting (moving to a place with lower cost of living) as popular as ever, but caveshifting movement, a term, which i just made up, is not that popular, although crazy success of Primitive Technology Guy shows that people are always interested in it.

When Australian Primitive Technology Guy doesn’t actually live like that (he moves to a wild life only when he make videos), the Canadian Caveman Bill is no joke, he does live in an actual cave for the past 20+ years.

Bill lives near Dawson City, a very small Canadian place located in Yukon. He tells his story:

When I first got to Dawson City, I was looking at a bunch of different options,” said Bill. “Tent City was going at the time. Around 300 to 500 transient workers set up a camp down by the ferry land. But it was a bit too much a zoo for me. My friend Kevin suggested that there were some caves across here. So I came over, checked them out. And once the river broke, I threw in my canoe and paddled over and moved on in.

Bill is a simple guy who doesn’t promote his “cave dwelling lifestyle” and he doesn’t reject modern society, he just lives in a cave and enjoys peaceful nature. He has almost everything he needs for such life, he makes furniture from wood and he is well known in the town. Bill visit his friends in the town often, sometimes he buys stuff there which he can’t get in nature or make himself. His furnished cave brings more tourists to the city.

Also, he is well educated, Bill Donaldson graduated from Ontario College of Art & Design in Toronto (Info from his Facebook page).
