First question I would have for you OP, is this: Are you thinking about running off and living in the wild? Are you just asking because you have no
idea how people survived without modern society? Are you planning on someday being in a position, i.e. TEOTWAWKI, where you need to leave society for
an extended period of time, if not forever?
All of the above scenarios have different answers. If this is planned, you can stockpile supplies and read up on how to live off the land with very
little. Teach yourself how to cope with things that you don’t even think about today as they are taken care of for you by society.
If you are just curious about how it’s done, asking 4 or 5 one line questions isn’t going to do you much good. Living off the land, be it in a
cave, building a more elaborate structure, natural medicines, food sources be it birds, fish, game, gardening, or wild edible gathering isn’t
someone that can be summed up or learned in a couple of quick posts.
This is something that takes years of practice, learning, and even some skill. Personally, and most other "survivalists" I know, would be more than
happy to work with you to teach you how to accomplish a feat as moving off the grid, but if its just general knowledge questions and you have no
interest in actually learning how to be self-sufficient, I suggest a library card and a few "Survivor Man" episodes.
