Survivalist, Self Sustainable Lifestyles or Whatevs....

Recommended Posts

Anybody on here down with that? I dont really have much knowledge about it but Ive been interested in it for well over ten years now and would really like to go on some adventures before the summer ends.

 

Got any book recommendations, links, personal experience, or any other suggestions they would be appreciated and rewarded.

 

Thanks

dammit lex i thought someone on here was actually into this..... Im hoping but it dont seem very likely.

 

Yeah I doubt most of these cats even go outside.

But yo I know a few of these peoples are down to camp and shit, I seen a few threads about it.

I forgot who though, I'm sure someone will put you down with some info.

I like camping but I just drink beer till I pass out, then I leave.

I'm not so much the survivalist!!

:lol: :lol:

There was a guy in the bike thread talking about going on a ride through America and living off the grid type thing, camping, fishing for food, etc. for a couple months.

 

It would be a great experience I think.

if you want to take minimal gear, google 'thru hiking' and 'ultra light backpacking'. *bearing in mind that those folks often plan to stock up on food in small towns and whatnot during a hike.*

 

just found this: http://www.naturalhub.com/gather_hunt_food.htm

I completely agree with it being a great experience, I just want some experience first and will definitely consider something like that later.

When i was younger i was all punk rock and shit and thought it was a great idea to be a squatter, well those were some of the worst days of my life and never want to relive them again so being prepared would be nice.

Go camping on weekends? Sort of like "practice". Starting fires, getting your own food, etc.

I don't really know.

Survivor man is one who actually goes out and survives by himself, not goes out for a few hours to film and then sleep at a hotel

Sometimes, I'd love to move to a mountain and live off the land. But I'm not the green thumb type, and I've been spoiled by civilized culture, so it makes it hard to quit cold turkey.

 

I'd recommend learning as much about the region you're going to be calling your home. Learn what you can eat and what you can't. Learn how to hunt and make your own affective weapons. Do you know carpentry? If not, try learning how to work with wood the old fashioned way (no electricity). Do you want 100% no human interaction? If so, you better learn how to make your own clothes and footwear out of animal pelts.

 

Oh --and buy a lifetime supply of DD batteries and a "fleshlight."
