    Me, I live part time in the wilderness.

    I'm planning a move into the untouched

    and very isolated wilderness in the heart of Idaho. I've spent hours scouring on the internet for places where I will not encounter anybody. And I've found it. I have no date yet. Right now it's an idea, although I have almost all the supplies ready to go. I want to build a hut...

    I think I'm turning more

    and more into an animal, I eat more natural, I just feel like escaping all the time, and I can't seem to stay inside for long cause I just get hot, I like running in the forest more and more, I feel like I'm chasing an animal that I can capture and eat.

    I want. No need to leave civilisation

    as soon as possible. All this materialism I hate it. Working to get paid to buy useless shite I hate. Working to pay for food isn't how it should be. We are DESIGNED to live in the natural world. And we did for generations. We all need to return it. Any advice tips or company?
