Living in the woods in total isolation for awhile
    #3823761 - 02/23/05 08:08 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Okay, I've always wanted to do this, ever since I was a little girl. Recently I've started thinking maybe it's about time I start making plans to do this. Once I tried to go camping by myself, and it was so terrible. I was so lonely that I cried and cried and eventually packed up and drove away on the second night. But I think if I didn't have access to a vehicle I would have stuck it out.

So basically I am thinking: A forest in the wilderness, some equipement, several doses of mushrooms, and somebody to drop me off and pick me back up again so that I don't try to escape when things get rough.

I think this would be good for me. What do you think?

i think it would be a deeply spiritual experience for you, to be sure. you'd probably learn a lot about yourself.

do be careful, though :laugh:

yes, be careful.

both the world and your mind will tear you apart if you're not prepared.

Sounds like a plan to me. Just make sure youve got everything you need and know how to handle emergency situations. I suggest reading The NOLS Wilderness first aid book, just to be safe.

Im planning on hiking the whole AT solo within the next 3 years. 2000+ miles of me and a pack. Should be interesting. Of course Ill run into peeps along the way.

If you think you'll need to "escape", You might want to think this through a little more first. It sounds like your only aiming for a week or so? If this is the case I dont see why you'd need to flee the forest. Sounds like a great thing to do, just make sure your ready for it.

Yeah I know, I will do a lot of preperation if I do this. I am one of those people who needs reassurance from other people often to be secure in my own reality...so the loneliness really gets to me if I am in the middle of nowhere.

But that's exactly why I think it is important that I put myself through that. To learn to depend on myself more.

I think every person should do this at least once, as a test of their will. Camp out in the woods, alone for 3 or 4 days.

Personally I think the shroomies would be a great idea. You might actually find any trip anxiety reduced since there is no "artifical environment" stress, like machines and other people. Just be one with nature. If you can endure such an experience I think you'll come out of it feeling a lot stronger mentally, and a lot more connected with Earth.

I would start with a solo overnight trip, just to get a feel and to help ease your mind. My best trips into the woods were on my solo overnights.

Please let us know how your experience goes.

I wish I could find a lady who wanted to do this.  :cool:

You might want to make sure that you thoroughly cover all your "needs" like bottled water, herbs, food, flashlight, etc.

That'll probably be the only thing you should worry about. Perhaps insect repellent depending on where you go and a first aid kit of some sort might help.

Go sit under a lotus tree for a day or two and meditate.

Be sure to bring the right gear.

You will definitely need an insulating mat to sleep on, and rain gear.

On my first vision quest I brought very little with me and nearly froze to death when the weather turned bad and stayed bad for three days. I will never forget that journey; I brought no drugs with me and no food, no mat, no sleeping bag; only a tent, survival gear and fishing gear. I was planning to be gone for forty days and forty nights. I was ten miles into the woods along a trout stream and ended up hiking back to town in the middle of the third night because I was hearing voices telling me to kill myself. I had been wet and cold and hungry for three days and I think hypothermia was threatening. When I left for that trip I expected that some great wisdom would be revealed to me while I was gone, and this was the case. I learned that unlike the animals, I need things to survive in this world, and I learned that as a social being, I also need other people. 

Today I still venture into the wilderness alone, but it's usually only for one or two days, and now I bring the right gear, including food and medicine :wink:. Upon my return I truly appreciate the conveniences of everyday life and the company of friends.

I think I might do this during spring break...but I don't know anywhere nearby besides public parks that I could go do it at. Well, I might have to do some research and see if there are any private campgrounds with lots of wilderness.

And the weather is just about to get good for this sort of thing, too.

Can I come isolate myself with you? :grin: We'll build a shack out of logs and moss and I promise I won't talk much!

Well it should be warm enough :smile: Hopefully you will be able to find a secluded spot. I'd check nearby national forrests; You'll probably have to hike a few miles to get away from everything.

Shit, I wouldn't want to be isolated in the wilderness with anyone else!  :heart:  :grin:

You can help me wrestle any bears that wander our way.  :thumbup:
