    Homesteading would be a comfortable way to do

    it, but I would prefer to be nomadic, treading carefully in nature as I go, going where the food is plentiful, taking only what I need and sharing what I already have...it's a dream that I intend to make a reality very soon!

    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?
