If you're not an incredibly skilled hunter/tracker/gatherer/meat curer, you'll never make it. Work on those things before you try it. Remember what happened in Into the Wild, right? I agree with some posts above. I can do the same thing, but I'm going to stick it out. This is one of the most incredible times in American history and you're running away? Tough it out.

when you go to canada, bring a large gun, say a 357 or some gun big enough to bring down a bear attack when you are hunting in the woods for deer. it is good for protection also. you may not like the idea of a gun, but when the ssshhh hits the fan you would be glad you had it. some fishing gear, some knives string for fishing, a canoe to travel. you making a small cabin like me. i think your not alone in this area, maybe i might run into you there. soon when america reaches total meltdown in oct. 2009 i too plan to live off the land. and i will be armed to the teeth. check your perameters frequent and buy a good compass. im building my cabin underground, fully non detectable from any veiw you might think about that. check out the survival sites, they help some. peace.

Where I live, which is central western canada, we get as cold as -40 degrees celcius in the winter. Schools don't shut down, buses keep running. That's nothing.
