This thread is sort of inspired by another thread about homelessness.
Anyway.. I was thinking.. If I were homeless and finding work was no option as I keep hearing is the case for many... I would go the state forest or
national park.. far away from the beaten track.. and live of the land.
In Australia.. there are many places you can camp for free that have toilet blocks and shower facilities.. these are often near a river or beach that
you can catch fish in... and if you were far enough from the beaten track you could grow some crops I'm sure..
Why don't more people do this? What attracts people to the cities when there is no work prospects? Rent and living is more expensive in cities .. thus
if you can't get a job there is no point being there. A welfare cheque would go alot further in the bush .. you only need to buy some tinned food
[SNIP]. If you have a few buddies who are broke too.. you could form a small society in the bush...
I guess one reason is legal.. some camping may be free but you cant camp indefinitely or permanently... If so however.. just camp until you get moved
on and go to a different spot... and so on.. ?
Anyone ever thought of this?
EDIT: I just realized this is in the wrong forum.. its not about ancient civilizations. Can mods move it to appropriate place?
I guess it could have ancient civ theme if consider camping is kinda like ancient living. .
