Retreat into the Wild
    #8994069 - 09/28/08 12:06 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

So I've been planning this for a while, and I'm finally doing it, leaving this Monday morning. I have a knife, slingshot, machete, sleeping bag, rain and wind resistant clothes, compass, assorted lengths and thicknesses of snare wire (galvanized aluminum rope), three books (Western Medicinal Plants and Herbs by Steven Foster and Christopher Hobbs, All That the Rain Promises and More... A Hip Pocket Guide T Western Mushrooms, by David Arora (author of Mushrooms Demystified), and the SAS Survival Handbook by John "Lofty" Wiseman), three changes of clothes, a sweater, and a bunch of other little gadgets to help me on my way. Also, I'm taking my guitar to keep me from becoming bored to death. I am also taking 2 tabs of supposedly really good LSD with me (which I've never tried) and possibly an eight of mushrooms if I can get my hands on them before I leave.

Does anybody think this is a terrible idea? I'm leaving for several reasons, but one is that I can't stand living in this society any longer. Another reason is I am going through a difficult Kundalini Awakening, and living in nature would be the best treatment for me. Yet another reason is that I've always wanted to do this, ever since I was a child. I'm no stranger to camping or the wilderness, so it's not like I have absolutely no hands on experience. Also, I fast quite often so even if I have to go a while without food, I think I'd be able to handle it.

Anybody have any advice about using LSD for the first time in the woods? Since I'm going to be sharp objects and weaponry with me, and since there will likely be a fire burning in my camp, is this a huge risk, or is it nothing? Or will it depend on how I react to the LSD? Would anybody suggest taking 1/2 a tab for a first timer, especially in my situation?


If I don't die out there, I may be back, possibly in a few months, or maybe even in a few years. I plan to become a self-sufficient animal able to live off whatever land, because who knows what may happen in the near future, seeing how the economy, government, and generally the socio-political atmosphere is these days. Who knows, maybe what I'm doing is smarter that I think? If I ever come back, I'll definitely be back here to tell whatever stories I have. Maybe I'll come right before 2012.....

At least bring some rice with you.  Sounds like a great adventure though.

That won't happen. I am homeless and I've invested my every last penny for this trip, and my bus leaves Monday. There's no way I'd rather stay here, in society, penniless and homeless. I'd much rather live free, in the wild, happy and natural.

What good would that do? Maybe I'll get a little rash, but that's it.

What is SERE school? Relieving yourself in nature feels SO MUCH better than in a toilet! :grin:

Errr... good luck with that. Surviving is way harder than it seems. If you have no training at all, I'd be pretty worried. Personally I would want three years at LEAST of serious hands on experience before I considered staying in the wild for even two weeks.

Survival

Evasion

Resistance

Escape


Army, Air Force, and the Navy all have their version, but the Army has the longest ass-kicking.
