I recently lost my job and have 4,000 in the bank. I want to live in the woods for a while so I don't waste all my money on rent. I also want a new job. What type of gear should I get?
4 Piece US Modular Military Sleep System
Polartec 300 fleese milsurp
Water resistant fleece with Merino wool lining
Merino wool thermal leggings
Merino wool socks
Quick dry underwear
Soloman Quest 2 boots
Trail running shoes
Blackhawk tacical pants
Tru Spec pants
Carhartt Force Base thermal top
That's about it.
Husqvarna hatchet and axe
Need advice on tent.
I would love to get a hot tent not so much because I'm afraid of the cold, but because it would be nice to be able to read on those long boring days. What is a good hot tent. Price don't really matter I guess. It will be a months rent price for something that will last a decade, right? I would also like to get a cot or something to get up off the ground. They have some good ones at gander mtn. What is the best thermally reflective sleep mat? Do I need an air mat since I'm a side sleeper? I'm not worried about the weight of this shit because I can take it out to the woods bit by bit once I find a spot with the help of google maps.
I thought about getting a pack but they seem awful expensive for something that I won't really need because I'm setting up a forward base. So I'll just get one of those camo duffel bags from gander mtn. But maybe i'll get a cheap alice pack or something. what are good packs in that price range?
I should also note that I'm from the northeastern united states of freedom.
>I don't waste all my money on rent
Do yourself a favor and find some friends or family to move in with. You won't be able to find a job when you smell like shit and are developing trench foot. You have enough money to rent a place for a few months anyway, what the fuck?
No such thing, you need a good sleeping bag.
>last a decade
lol not if you expect to make it your home for that long
Most people who go live in the woods take a hell of a lot longer to get back on their feet, if ever. Go stay at a homeless shelter and apply for jobs. Don't be a try hard anon, we believe in you. I believe in you.
Do you have private land you're allowed to put this on? Don't count on being able to do this somewhere and not be found. You will be found sooner than you expect, and be kicked out, maybe even have your stuff confiscated and face legal charges.
Just apologize to your parents and move in with them.
Shit Grylls, I knew your show wasn't on the air anymore, but going homeless? That's a sad fate. What have you been spending all your money on, hookers and urine?
>Don't count on being able to do this somewhere and not be found. You will be found sooner than you expect, and be kicked out,
What about federal forest land where dispersed camping is allowed? Seems like if you moved around every so often you would be able to plausibly claim that you were fairly exercising your rights and not violating any rules (assuming OP isn't going to start poaching or anything)
My parents are dead.
I'm not sure i'll get found because I'm surrounded by niggers who have no appreciation for natural beauty. I've never once seen other people footprints in the now or mud in the area I want to go to.
I won't stink because I'll have a gym membership and will keep myself clean there.
I don't want to stay at a homeless shelter because those things are miserable. I hate people and being around homeless weirdos will just crush my soul, whereas living in the woods will be like therapy for the soul.
what will you eat?
also get a gun, being homeless is being a prime target for bully.
people will fuck up your stuff when you leave or even beat you up or dose you with gas and lit your ass up.
Get yourself a small knife or multitool that cuts well and ditch the Hatchet.
Just to be safe, get some blankets.
Dont buy anything at first. try to live with what you have and decide from there.
Check out public fountains or move to a place where drinking water is free.
Always look for a job daily.
Spend all that money in food primarily
DONT EVER buy alcohol or any drugs
If you can avoid it, stay away from illegal jobs , whichever they are, unless it's easy grunt stuff.
Buy a cheap conceable handgun and about 150 rounds. Idk if you will be able to hunt with it because it will draw attention to you. Fish or set traps and get cookware, axe is a must also a compass or some type of navigation. Get a travel backpack and some mre's. Make sure your somewhat close to a fresh water source.
I have to recheck the regulations but you can stay 10-14 days in one spot and then you have to move. You cannot return to any spot within one calendar year.
Aside from looking for a job daily (if that is what you are trying to get away from for a while), this is good advice.
You won't need 150 rounds. You aren't fighting a war. Get a 6 shot revolver and 18 rounds (two reloads) if you just want something for defense. And make sure you carry that shit legally. If a game warden comes up and asks you what you are doing and finds out you are concealing illegally you are 100% fucked. If you want to use it to hunt get a .22 or an HMR rifle that is collapsible. These can be had for under $250, especially if you get it used. They are very cheap on ammo and can take small game like squirrels and birds if you are good. Make sure you have a hunting license, it is $30 in most states and a lot cheaper than poaching charges.
When you say a 'while', what do you mean?
Stopped at $4000 in bank.
So fuck you. Buy a Toyonta Chinook camper truck/rv.
Bingo! No more homeless, place to stow your gear, dinner table, cozy for runaway grrls, cross stateline, opps, The Mann Act!
> hardly enforced any more.
Get a cute puppy, just for the chicks. Wjich will leave you and the dog.
And then knowing that in 9-15 yrs you will have to put a bullet in it's head and bury it by hand. Remember you will have to look at that shovel for the rest of your life.
Might as well die now. I suggest bridge.
I've given thorough thought to this situation throughout my life.
I know its not exactly the woods, but have you thought about getting a membership to a 24 hour gym?
>Place to change/wash up
>Yoga rooms to power nap in (if you don't want to sleep in your car)
>Hot bitches err day
You'd be able to love there pretty much indefinitely with 4k in the bank, along with ability to afford food, and clean up before job interviews/work.
God speed, Anon.
