I Want To Live In Wilderness With Nature

i put an effort to find this group of people, because i really need this. i never really met a person that want to live in the wilderness. many people weat to live in harmony with nature but i want to do that in wilderness. i imagine that in some forest with some shelter maybe.

on my island which is in croatia in europe prevail oak's forests which i like very much, naturally probably. there, in autumn, yellow leaves fall on the ground whick looks so good. then, i want to lie down and roll like on the snow :P
One day when i learn necessary skills i will rush to some forest and stay there :)

the wish about living in the wilderness became the part of my identity which grows in my heart day by day. i dont like society and civilisation very much, i dont like all this rules. here there is no resepect and worry for Nature.

i know that it is gonna be VERY hard, but i also know that i am gonna to do that for sure, because, without nature and animals my life doesnt have meaning and purport. i am very stubborn person :)

in his conffesion djjoko said : If I sound like yourself, or you know of someone, a group, or a WEBSITE for those who also share my vision, please post and let me know. I can't tell you how appreciative I would be.
i copyied that becuse that is exactly what i meant to ask.

sorry for my bad english

I have that dream to, let's all be friends and maybe we can one day do it,, ;D


It brings joy to my heart to see there's so many like-minded people out there in the world :) .
i još bolje da nisam jedina iz Hrvatske :)

Hi all. My name is Arielle and I work for a TV production company in the US that is looking for a family who wants to live off the grid - maybe on an island somewhere - and not only is ready to make the change, but has hopefully started planning. We would like to document the process! If this is something you might be interested in, please email me at I look forward to hearing from you!

ı am in shock right now. ı never thought that there are so many people think like that, just like my view to life. ı am so so so happy! greetings from TURKIYE!

hello there im ryan and im 18 and from the uk i have wanted this for years it comes to help that ive studied and practised the art of bushcraft since i was about 5 so im very happy to be a part of nature if we can get this set up id give up everything and make this happen no matter where you are from uk,usa or europe lets do this and become one big community more than happy to take any mail :D

Hi ryan, feels good to hear those words from someone

As always my friend happy that someone agrees!

Most refreshing post & comments I've read in donkeys :D cheers for the breath of fresh air guys!
I'm ty, 21 & from Australia. I love nature, love animals & have massive issueswith the way of life I am living.. but I don't know any other way yet!
Learning all the tricks of the trade slowly, doing a course in horticulture & herbalism. But lack huge amounts of knowledge in how to survive long term in the Wild.
Ultimately i would like to buy a piece of land with a dozen families. Something large enough to get lost in, whether it be rainforest or snow in South America or Asia i don't mind - wherever It's possble! With a running creek nearby, good soil for crops & a beautiful all natural view. Tepees, wooden huts or treehouses for homes. An outdoor fireplace for cooking & enjoying starry nights with good people. In short - to create a long term sustainable community.. something small initially. But someplace capable of growing into a small township of 60 or so adults where everybody is in it together, one for all - all for one. To create an entirely new sustainable system made up for forward thinking, creative kindred spirits who wish to live in harmony with the local environment. Spiritual Bushmen, Musicians, Artists, Story tellers, Doctors, Holistic healers, Herbalists, Farmers, Carpenters, Horticultural landscapers, Gardeners, Scientists, Astrologers.
Technology is an extension of humanity & is not evil IMO, though many machines we have created are terrible things as well our means of fueling them & EVERYTHING.
I desire to build a new town, with a way of living that makes sense.
A place where you can walk barefeet on grass & earth, not steel & concrete.
Open land without borders or fence posts or toxic smoke.
Where you can spend your days evolving with a humble bunch of people, working as one for the benefit of all.. building each others homes, growing food & any other creative ideas we may come up with. Gathering natural sources for art materials, carving canoes, instruments or tools..
Someplace where you can enjoy the simple beauty of it all, make memories with good people, live day for day, whether you build your home next to another or a kilometre away from everyone else. It doesn't matter.
A place free from advertisements, bullshit & confusion. A place free from insanity. Where the people are at home in nature, living with integrity, free to be whoever they may be, living a way of life within the natural ecosystem which is intelligent & sustainable so we may evolve into healthy beings of awesome.
Sorry for the ramble, I think that was more to myself you guys just got the ol brain ticking away. I like thinking of this place it makes me happy, hopefully one day it will exist. Or maybe it already does & I just need to find the right commune!
Anyway cheers for the inspiration :)

Ty your more than welcome to get in touch buddy and your more than welcome to help me create this community we need all the help we can I know about the shelter building etc you know your horticulture and herbalism also I'm pretty spiritual in the bush as I feel I belong there and being a musician also helps haha

Hi, when i saw your post i had to register. I live in Slovenija (which is close) and I have always respected nature. Not long ago I've became "spiritualy aware" of myself and realised that I want to live in nature and not in the modern society. At the moment I'm 17 years old and when in finish school I will probably go out of the society and start living in the nature. I never liked living in cities and modern society. And I really like your idea. I think we all here should connect and create a society somewhere in the wilderness. Sorry for bad English :D

i'm 19 always had that dream building a peaceful simple community in the wilderness let's be friends!


hi martina! i live in new york. i love it here very much but i am afraid because my government wants me dead:p after i liquidate my car motorcycle and other things that are meaningless to me i will buy equipment to travel very light and proceed to live amongst the trees in nature. i have never met anyone who shares my mindset until now unless my government is tricking me with you robots lol just kidding.....i hope. i would like a small group of people who share the same interes about starting a little civilation somewhere secluded and ideal learning the land and not to exploit all the resources like the common theme of history :) like the movie avatar haha well i will come back and post an email address because i deleted mine. i am very interested in making new friends

You know, I live in philadelphia & this concrete jungle & ugly city life is not my nature. More & more I am yearning to be in nature, so much that me & my friend are planning to take a road trip to spend a few days in nature, at the beach in the forest. & if you want to connect and come with, that would be awesome. I am always looking for people with similar interest but I am surrounded by people who are not. I even want to move away and into to nature to live off of the land

I just want to hug you all. It feels so good to find people with similar thoughts... I feel more connected to you guys than with people around me. For me it all started with fight club, initially I was angry with the society and wanted to press my thoughts to people.. Later on i realised that i have to change first before trying to change others, and also found that things are easy to achieve through peace than through violence

I yearn for this more and more everyday. Life is FREE. food is FREE. This beautiful planets supports all if its life forms and doesn't ask for money. The only true law is the law of nature , followed by the law of the land. Cause no harm or loss to another. This is our planet and I don't recall signing up for these bull crap statutes and "laws". I want peace and freedom in the wilderness, living and communicating with nature. :-)

My name is Karl. I live up here in Canada where i was born and raised. I grew up in a small mill town in northern b.c so i was always in the bush playing as a kid. As the years went by and family members passed away i am now here all by myself. I am currently 30 years old and have been trying to find a way back into nature where i can live my life free and i dont mean money. I am sick of living my life in a society for many reasons, and it really sucks that we dont have the right to leave it all behind for a primative living. We cant because it wont contribute into bettering this world. We can get mining claims and destroy the beautiful country that we have because it contributes. What a crock of **** that is. I am skilled in survival in the wilderness and i will find a way to get there. This is our land and we should have the right to live how we want no matter what as long as it isnt harming this planet. The reason i am writing this is to find some like minded people to do this with. If we band together we can do it

do you still think the smae way, ? when i red your letter to us i feel like i could have wrote that , that is exactly what i think and came by for, i am thinking about this everyday

greetings Jonas

This my dream to! i love the forests and landscapes, nature, animals etc. If you have manifested this dream..let me know!

I want to live in the wilderness to. Life nowadays, what is that? Everyone is becoming fat and we sit on our chairs with robots doing everything for us, that aint life. Life is when you are a "HUMAN" living in the nature, hunting for food, building shelter. Not sitting and playing games all the days and having cars driving around destroying nature with gas and all kinda crap. Too bad im just 15 and can't go to another country now or do anything beside going to school for a good job in the future. Working and getting money, buying beer, get drunk, drive cars and all that fancy ****. The kind of life i wanna live is the kinda life you describe. It would'nt be any rapists, murderers, thiefs. It would be "LIFE". I hope you get my point. I hope this will happen and i hope life will become "LIFE" again.

Living in California it can be easy to find the wilderness. I am currently living with my girlfriend and have been fighting this urge for 3 years. I know if I went into the wild it would swallow me whole and i would let nature do it. I have terrifying and wondrous dreams at night about waking in the wild. I long for nature for the wild. I've got all the knowledge and things i would need to do it, I just have difficulties with the thought of cutting ties with the world around me. I'm not meant to live where i am. I lack the strength to tell those that i love that i need to go. My mind is fanciful and ever curious. I long for the day I can have a friend that can pull my into the wild and rescue me from this trap ive caught myself in.

Hello Martina. Im Jacob and I share the same idea as you! Im 19 years old and I already feel that this society that we are living in is very corrupt. It is also very hard for me because everyone in my family and friends thinks i will be wasting my time and that i should be in school and get a "real" job. All i want is to be happy. If people are happy in their office buildings, I want to be happy in nature!! I feel that humans have a connection with nature and we should live with nature and not away from it in cities!

I eventually would like to start a movement. A statement that if people are free to live, then they should really be free! Of course this will take lots of time. I would appreciate if you and anyone who wishes to talk about this topic and how we can make it work to email me! I wish you much success in the future and i hope to speak to you soon! Love sincerely , Jacob

I feel the same as you! I want to do this, just don't know how to go about it..

pridruzuju ti se jos dvojica, moj frend i ja o tome pricamo zadnjih godinu dana, otici u sumu i zivjeti svoj zivot... milina... :)

hej , iz kud ste vi? ja sam s krka. tako mi je drago da ima u blizini ljudi koji to zele :)

+1 :)

Croatia is my ideal place!!! im in the US right now, but would be more than willing to jump on a boat, if we can work something out.. get in touch with me on the site....!!!

Wow, I've been thinking the same thing for a long time. I don't know how hard it would be to actually do it though, but I have been thinking, if a group of people moved together and started a kind of own community, I mean if people are allowed to live on the taxes, in big houses with tons of money, doing plastic surgeries just to look good and over consume, why wouldn't people who want to live in he forest and live that kind of life, be able to do that? I am glad others are thinking in the same way! I'm from Sweden btw, its nice to hear people from all over the world are caring for the nature! Does anyone know of any kind of "alternatetive" community? / Felle

... Caring is not equal to think on it, i have been contacting with all people here and still nobody join me, so dont be so proud, this people is just a crowd of cowards, i challenge anyone to prove me the opposite, i have 2 gear sets and i live in spain,get my city from any country in europe is not more expensive than 300 euros. But even with that all people find excuses to dont join me, and the most recurrent is the day of truth say not to be mentalized, in other words COWARDS

Yes yes yes !! I live in Australia but I would love the experience of living in the forest in Croatia
How do I contact You Martina?

i have planed this all out. i am leaving next week. im not doing this because iv lived a hard life but for th same reason as you. im 25 n have a great job well had as of monday. the pressure of society is to much for me. i hope you do this to. iestimate it only to be its roughest till i build shelter. good luck and if you ever come to wisconsin look me up

good luck to you!
i hope you acheive what you want
just like i hope to acheive soon

heeey! How was it? How are you?

i am serious about living this kind of life, to live free and be part of nature is everything i have wanted for years. now i am old enough i have started to mentally prepare for all the situations i would face and i have started getting a rucksack and equipment together of the basic things i will need. I would do it alone if i had to but i have hope that there is some others out there who want and feel the same as i do. I am a 21 year old guy who lives in Dudley UK. Please there must be others like me who want to get away from this society that i find disgusting and i have grown to dislike.

Your English is just fine. I understood everything you wrote and on a deeper level I understood the feelings you expressed and your desire to leave society's rules and replace them with nature's rules. I guess I understand because it is exactly the way I feel.

Thank you so much for sharing, this is an amazing story!<br />
<br />
I actually work for a production company in Los Angeles and we are currently trying to create a documentary series (for a major network) to help tell the stories and deliver the messages of people just like this! We'd like to focus on individuals and/or families who are choosing to live in the wild, off of the land and away from society. I would love to get in touch with you to hear more about your incredibly refreshing lifestyle! <br />

Hi everyone!<br />
<br />
Before all, thank you Martina for great mail and an idea which we all here seem to share!<br />
I'm from Croatia (Rijeka), too, and thoughts about leaving all this false & upside-down society hipocrysis is following my footsteps - you could as well call it "haunting" me - for some time now, and slowly but steadily growing in my soul. I can hardly express how much I am glad to find here people who share the very same idea with me!<br />
Well, as I first step (which, I feel, tells me there's NO going back once the idea has planted into my mind), I am clear about this decision, and I prepared my soul (or better to say - IT has prepared me!), now, as a 2nd step, I'm trying to build my intellect up to the immense task of learning the basic skill of surviving in the wild by downloading tons of great helpfull books about it and reding it hungrily, as I do. The last step, I guess, is starting to prepare my body for it...<br />
I guess it all started with "Into the wild" movie...there is something magnetic in its power of persuading about its main message...and the fact I find myself a lot of common with Alexander "the supertramp" (except his ability to see things clearer when I was in HIS age) - must be the symbiosis, the sinergetic power of all that, combined...<br />
<br />
I am so glad to be there to share it all and meet all of you great people!

ej, ja sam s krka. trebali bi se naći jedan dan kad dođem doma iz zadra. pa da pričamo :)

Watch Out Of Alaska 1st then make your decision!
