Do you want to get out of the rat race but not drop out? Do you want to live a life of leisure without worry or guilt? If your answer is yes, Dolly Freed will show you how to live well without a job and without working very hard.
After discussing reasons why you should or shouldn't give up your job, POSSUM LIVING gives you details about the cheapest ways with the best results to buy and maintain your own home, dress well, cope with the law, stay healthy, and keep up a middle-class facade--whether you live in the city, in the suburbs, or in a small town. In a delightful, straightforward style, Dolly Freed explains how to be lazy, proud, miserly, and honest, live well, and enjoy leisure.

As much as we all hate to admit it, don't you just love TV, video games, internet porn and cell phones?
I think our society, as it is now, is the result of the evolution of civilization. Technology is the extension of our brain's capacity, and in turn makes life easier. I don't think, however, that this should make us lazy. I am watching "Everything is Illuminated" right now on my big TV and sitting in my air conditioned home on the computer. If I change my style of life, it will be out of nothing less than absolute necessity, like Sit-X.
Although I do find great stress relief from going camping every now and then, I wouldn't like it to be the norm.
Good link regardless, I think it is something everyone should get a hold of just "in case."

there are those out there that truly enjoy this type of lifestyle and have learned to fly under the radar. The next time you are out look for someone that appears to be homeless but less dirty than the others. Sit and talk to them you might be surprised at who chooses this lifestyle. They might be considered the last of the mountain men as such as they are completely independant.
Aleast you have an edge, you've been there and done that.
Take care brother, and watch your six.
