My personal opinon (I haven't read the responses previous to mine) as a younger person who has been on a couple similar excursions to kind of press
the "reset button" on life (nature is good for the soul), is to ditch the computer, bring the firearm, bring the solar panel (a luxury as you stated,
that could save your life... you never know), bring some kind of cell phone, and bring your dog if you can pull it off somehow.
I don't know you from anything other than this thread you started, but I can't explain in English just how well I understand you and feel where you're
coming from. An adventure like this could easily be the best thing that has happened in all your years, but it could also be the worst. "Prior
planning prevents piss poor performance"
... don't get in your vehicle and drive until you run out of gas, man - I've been in that kind of
scenario and can attest to how counterproductive such an experience can be.
I've rafted the Grand Canyon and I've kayaked some of the best rivers in the US including the Rogue River multiple times so if you need any info on
living on the banks of a river for extended periods of time I can help you out (that being said, I have no idea of your experience level on the water
so please don't take offense if you're a seasoned boater). And if by some stretch you end up in Maine on one of our great bodies of water I'd be happy
to help you resupply.
The most important things to take into consideration are the essentials of life. It's so easy for us to forget about what we really need to survive in
our techno-world we live in today. Food, water, shelter, clothing, and (not necessary but very important) companionship.
That's why I suggested
bring your dog. If you play an instrument bring that, because if you do this right you should have some time to yourself to not only survive, but
thrive as a spirit
I have so much more I could share but I don't know if it's wanted or appreciated. More than anything I want to say that from what I've told you I hope
you get out of it that I support your endeavor completely.
