I made a post awhile back here about how I'm basically done with this life. However, it's not that I *want* to die, it's that I simply see no purpose in me continuing on this way. One of the last things I enjoy in life is football, and I'm 100% convinced I will not survive the offseason at this rate. I know I'll be gone if this continues. One of the other things I enjoy, however, is nature. I live in North Carolina and there's a lot of mountains and forests. I was thinking, rather than just offing myself, how interesting it would be to go "Survivor Man" lifestyle in the middle of nowhere with no one. I'm talking stick and rock houses and boiling river water to drink. I suppose I would have to go into town once in a while to get things I truly can't get on my own (like soap, toothpaste and allergy medicine) but spend 99% of my time with the trees and birds. I receive a monthly check for my disability, so I'll always be able to buy those very basic necessities as I need them. They just won't know that I'm technically homeless. Does this sound plausible at all to anyone? And if so, does anyone have any suggestions on what to have? It will still be a couple months before I can do this, but it would give me something great to look forward to. If anyone has any nice recommendations on "camping" gear, I'd love to hear it, and you can PM me any links, as long as it's things that aren't insanely expensive. Obvious things would be like, an axe, knife, flint, gun, lanterns, flashlights, etc. One thing I'm not familiar with is personal locators - I need some kind of device that I can leave 1 part at my camp and take the other part with me, so I can always find my way back (getting lost would not be very fun) Also it gets pretty damn cold here sometimes, so some clothing suggestions would be good too.
