In the early 1900s, an insurance clerk from London named Millican Dalton became an early adopter of the alternative lifestyle, quitting his job to live in a cave in the English Lake District. Other than an occasional trip to neighboring Keswick for coffee, Dalton remained self-sufficient for more than forty years. This short film shares the underpinnings of Dalton's life that inspired outdoor retailer Millican to create sustainable bags for the modern day adventurer. You can follow Millican on Facebook here.
