    Maybe he was living with a family of Sasquatch that used hypnotherapy on him to erase the memory of his journey. Maybe.

    Or the Loch Ness Monster?

    I call Reginald Perin on this (you probably have to be above a certain age, and most likely British, to get that one ;) )

    I've had the dubious pleasure of going to Seaton Carew (it's about 15-20 miles away from me) and most of the locals do bear an uncanny resemblance to Sasquatch, now you mention it...

    I saw this story this morning and thought it would be a clever way to leave your wife, without a messy divorce.

    Then I realized that that is not clever at all.

    it was a rough morning.

    I really wish he didn't forget everything. It'd be interesting hearing what he was up to over the past 5 years. Though I have a feeling it was a giant hoax/ scam of some sorts. Can't remember my ass.

    Speaking of ass, they should check his for alien probes, or something.

    Anything from alien artifacts to "Oh Henry chocolate bars".

    Well, considering he was on a canoe trip I hope he didn't run into some kind of Deliverance scenario and he's been 'squealing like a pig' for the last 5 years with a creepy kid providing music on his banjo.

    Maybe he fell through a wormhole, with one end traveling at relativistic speeds resulting in Time Travel 5 years into the future.

    What? Science hasn't yet proven that that cannot happen!

    Actually, I'm willing to bet he fell out of the canoe, hit his head, and suffered amnesia.

    Yeah, maybe he's got the "Memento" thing going, where he can't make new memories - but if that's the case, how would he survive in the wilderness?

    Maybe he committed a crime and waited for the time for which he can be charged for it to pass.

    Alien Abductee. Gotta be, unless its not...
    I read stuff in the past about people vanishing off the face of the Earth for a while, then returning with no memory of what happened, but that was generally for a few hours at most?
    5 years? Get this guy to a hypnotist, make him remember, I want to hear his crazy adventures.


    That would suck, 5 years of your life gona and you don't remember 1 bit? Talk about a letdown.
    I realise I come off sounding like a nut in the first part of this post. It's hard to phrase things seriously when talking about little green men from Uranus, or wherever.

    Maybe he was falsely imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, then promptly escaped to the Los Angeles underground where he has been living as a soldier of fortune.
