I've gave away everything I own and walked off a couple times with just what I could fit into a backpack. Growing up my dad always told me stories of
all his adventures back in the 60's hitchhiking so I think that played a big role, plus the whole being fed up with society thing.
I've had the most crazy experiences while on the road, almost died more times than I can count, seen the best of human nature in what's supposed to be
the worst of society, and seen the worst of human nature in what passes for "good" society these days.
What people don't realize until you actually do it, is that its still possible, even today, and there's a community of thousands of people out there
doing it right now.
Rubber tramps, leather tramps, even boat punks, (which is a community of people that live on boats and travel around the world, no money, just working
for what they need wherever they stop at the time. They have meet ups every year at different places around the globe.)
What's changed the most is that a lot of people don't have the balls to do that anymore. People have been fed so much bs they're afraid of everything,
so they have to have money in their pocket and paid for walls around them to feel safe.
The reality is, once you spend the night outdoors a few times, you realize it isn't the end of the world and you actually don't NEED any of those
things you've been taught to need to feel safe.
