For those concerned, thank you so much and proving to me that there is actually humanity that still cares for stranger. I think that's awesome. Now
to put those at rest.
I have do solo survival experience for up to 20 days of wilderness living mostly in forested regions of the midwest (spring, summer, and fall) winter
sucks here. I have eaten bugs, caught animals (tho I like the whole vegetarian, beans approach), built makeshift shelters from trees/branches, speared
I do know for the most part what to bring and my approach to this whole scenario. I would also like to bring perhaps a small camera/video for recoding
all of this and having it posted here on ats.
My purpose in posting this, was to bring out of the woodworks others who have done some similar things and get their advice. The chap a few posts
above who lived in a cave for example, he has given me good wisdom.
I am also looking into getting a helping hand the first month or two by locals, perhaps tribe members from reservations, or other survivalists in the
nearby area for a helping hand.
The cave idea sounds great. However I would have to resolve that with the rancher, who's land it sits on or the rangers, who would kick me out and
give me trouble, if its on federal land.
Either way this has to be done. I have already invested in some supplies, talked to my boss for flexibility in the future, several books, gear, etc
I want to get out of it as much survivalist experience as I can, but also as much spiritual growth as I can. Self inquiry, meditation, keep a journal.
So this is a dualistic approach at the whole matter. I do want to make out of there alive, but also I do want to bring myself to a brink of surviving
through fasting some here and there.
This is not a good bye letter and suicide note. I will come back out and post my experience and what I learned on here. Perhaps turn it into a
documentary if its not too much trouble dealing with the cameras, battery, power, and editing.
Also, if you never heard of the subject, called sungazing, I do want try much of that. See what happens and if its true that you can be "nutrified"
and fed by the suns energy needing no food or water.
