Im a complete outdoor newfag. so much, that ive never even been camping, ever.
im looking for help in either directing me or just tips on longterm outdoor survival. When i say longterm, i mean by that possibly year or more long. Is it even possible given how the world has changed? im also looking for it to be without any human contact during that time, or minimal, and abscence of modernity.
The area that i have fantasized about would be somewhere along the lines of washington, those sorts of forests. But then again, im basing this solely on the looks of those places. What area would be best to survive in?
How do i even start, and am i retarded for even imagining such a dream?
Why don't you buy a cheap tent and spend a few weekends out in nature and see if you even like it? If you've never been out camping you might take the conveniences of modern life for granted.
Pro-tip: Bring toilet paper.
i have that planned soon. But for now im wondering if pursuing it makes any sense.
Ive never been camping but i have spent a few months in a hermitage in india. But i lived off of food donations and didnt have to do much aside keeping the fire alive. I definetly liked it, but it was still to much human contact for me.
Because the peoe who lack the critical thinking skills to work through this idea on their own also lack the critical thinking skills to realize this has probably been posted before and to check the catalog.
Seriously Mods, hermit/homeless/runaway sticky when?
Most contain plastic fiber, so they will not break down
Unless you pack them out, you are littering
Are people really that fussy that they need baby wipes for their delicate little bungholes?
Who is smelling your ass in backcountry anyways?
I just wear smartwool silvers (or shorts if it's very hot). they wick all the fecie peices away from your butt and then you just wash them in running water every week or so
Go car camping. do it for 2-3 days each month. then for 1-2 weeks the next year. After that, go hiking and camping starting with 2-3 days then 1-2 weeks. Do that for a year.
After that you will have enough experience and equipment to do what you really want to do or you may abandon the entire idea and keep doing what you've been doing.
Remember one major thing. The extreme want to get away from everyone and everything is an indication of high stress and or mental instability. I suggest getting some therapy from a professional to help you make the proper decision and to help you cope with other things in your life. This doesn't mean to not do what you want to do. It just means you should know where you stand in your life before you do it.
Bring a wash cloth. Wash your ass with it. Wash the wash cloth. Repeat. Make herbal teas (without sugar) and wash your self with those to prevent rashes and bad odors. The latter can indicate skin problems about to occur. Just google up some local herbs that are good for antibacterial/antimicrobial/anti-fungal activity.

Every other thread on this board is now knife autism or NEETs experiencing mild, passing disaffection with society and asking if they should fade stoically, romantically, heroically into the wilderness. Fuck.
