I`m sure it`s possible but the real question is how long would you survive out there?
wild animals, poison snakes, lyme disease,no medical care nearby if you have an accident,etc.

It's very possible. Humans haven't always had access to a grocery store. With that said I'd do a little research before going survivorman out there.


Back when there were no grocery stores there was actually an abundance of game to survive from. These days especially here in California finding game is slim to none. And if you do manage to kill anything you better hide it because the wardens will chew you up and spit you out alive out here.

California doesn't have a lot of really promising areas for survival as most of it's a desert. Northern CA would be your best bet. But desert survival is miserable.

You want to hit the woods, it can certainly be done. There's more that's edible than you'd initially think, although sometimes you have to put 'edible' in air quotes. And it depends on the season. And you have to be willing to kill things and eat them.

We used to take off into the woods with what was in our pocketses as kids and camp for days at a time. But Appalachian Georgia has lots of food there for the taking, especially in the late spring and through the summer. If you had time to prep during the summer, winter would be easily survivable though.

If you're interested in 'how would you approach this', I always recommend 'Camping and Woodcraft' by Kephart. It's a how-to for starting with what's in your pocketses to ending up with a nice solid camp and some grub, based on 1920's technology. It's very Southern Appalachian oriented, though, but has some Western bits. Not desert though. Kep will show you everything from setting deadfalls for deer to how to build a log cabin with minimal hard tools.

Living here in the forests of California I can tell you that even the forests are barren of life. Unless you want your survival to consist of eating small lizards that are impossible to catch you're going to have a horrible time. The sierra nevadas is one of the harshest areas for survival. Especially during the winter months.

Absolutely it's possible.

Folks have been living in the deep woods for rather a long time.

with the right prep you can live very comfortably off the grid. ...and the right skills make the prep rather straight forward.
