Hi, im 15 and live in a small city in Iowa. I've been wanting to run away for awhile now but not because my life is bad or anything, in fact my life is actually pretty good. But i want to run away to explore, to take on adventures, to learn and see new things! I mean what if you died tommarrow? What have you really done with your life? You can answer that your self. Life has so much more to offer than your daily routine, and i have come to realize this and want to take action. Im proably gonna be packing up in the next few weeks here and on my way. Im gonna start heading to california. It is proably gonna take a few months to get there from where i live. I am gonna do it its already set in my mind. So dont comment say anything like dont do it or anything. Ive done alot of research over running away, surviving on your own, surviving off the wild, run away warnings, helpful things while running away, run away supplies, important things to know when running away, how to do alot of stuff that you would need to know to when running away, and plenty more. I know i need protection dont worry i have that covered. Im also taking a tent that has a backpack case for it. Just in case i need to camp out in the woods for a few nights here and there. Im taking a **** ton of stuff that would be helpful. Not big stuff but little things that are helpful. I have worn the tent and another backpack with all the stuff i need and its not to heavy. Im also taking a pillow and blanket. Wanna be comfy when i sleep in my tent :). Yes i am gonna write a run away note but its gonna be a nice one. Its gonna say that i love my hole family and that im not running away because i hate you all and so on and so on. Yes i know the dangers of running away but im willing to take the risk. Thanks for reading this and i hope that you support me on this.
