Mick Dodge: A little backstory

So, who is Mick Dodge and how did he become the Barefoot sensei? Your average grandfather who is a retired navy that traded the high-speed internet for the lush trees of the Hoh rainforest.

Born on August 29, 1951, Dodge is a native of Forks of the Olympic Peninsula. He has lived in many parts of the world as he served the navy for 6 years just like his father a former navy Ronald L. Dodge. He got his high school education from Okinawa, Japan. 

It was in 1991 when he took the grand step to pack his bags and go for his journey into the wilderness. He moved to a forest in Washington and never turned back.

For 20 long years, he survived alone in the wilderness and was then discovered by the National Geographic Network who had an idea to shoot a documentary based on his life. And thus came “The Legend of Mick Dodge”.

Mick is called The Barefoot Sensei because he tends to walk the forest barefooted. Believed to be due to a foot complication, Dodge tells us that walking barefoot on a forest terrain is very beneficial for the body and the mind.

What happened to The Legend of Mick Dodge?

The Legend of Mick Dodge is a show broadcasted on the National Geographic channel based on the life of the forest nomad Mick Dodge. The show went on for three seasons with 32 episodes with Dodge.

Due to the creative difference between the National Geographic channel and him, Mick decided to end their contract leading to no new season of The Legend of Mick Dodge.

Mick’s reality show ended in 2014 with the last episode being aired on Feb 17, 2015. We believe that the cameras may have shifted him away from what he really wanted which might have led him to very lonely years that ultimately made him quit.
