    Eating and wearing animals is the best part of living in the wilderness!

    True.

    You are confused...

    You cannot avoid snow, and most people are forced to travel in it surrounded by chunks of metal weighing in excess of 2 tons which are traveling at high velocity. In the wilderness, we would be thankful for the abundance of easily-obtainable water (don't eat the yellow or brown stuff though ), easy animal tracking, and faster (and more fun) foot travel (skiing and pulling gear in a sled).

    The weirdest, scariest wildlife has two legs and generally lives in urban areas. Compare the statistics on how many deaths were caused by bears versus humans in the past 100 years.

    Few buildings offer adequate tornado protection. Mountains offer superior protection because few tornadoes touch down in mountainous regions.

    I recon it would be awesome to do but there are things like music that I couldnít go without so Iíd need a generator at least and even then I don't think I could do it for too long, I would *cough* miss people *cough*.
    Looking at his website, I see that he has recently added a small hydroelectric generator.

    A little planning would allow you to grow beans, soybeans, and other protein alternatives.

    Agreed.

    Even funnier is that most people do this already, but they don't think about it.

    Wouldn't mind at all.

    It's just sad, how most people have no clue how to survive outside of an urban area. They would starve without a McDonalds and a Chinese restaurant just a five minute walk away.

    Nature does not provide me w/an enclosed room with a bathtub and stereo to listen to music, and privacy in which I may read my nerd science fiction novels in peace for hours.

    Holy crap, Javo thanks for posting this. I've already called and requested more information. I want to try to get into the Adult Camp that is scheduled for this summer.

    They'll have to force me to leave.
    Embrace the possibilities.
