BOISE - Richard Zimmerman -- If that name doesn't sound familiar, and you've lived in Idaho a while, then maybe this will help - "Dugout Dick."

For more than 60 years, he literally carved out a place for himself in a hillside near Salmon.

John Miller met "Dugout Dick" in 1999 - during a road trip around Idaho.

So in remembrance of the "Dugout Dick's" caves that have been recently filled in by BLM, here's John's story on this man who is one of the people who put his unique stamp on our state.
