Best trade that will help me if I ever live off grid?

Planning on getting employed in some shitty non-union slave chamber company ran by boomers who pay you a cup of coffee per hour. I plan on learning everything I can by some shiteating screaming boomer before fricking off to the middle of woods. Question is what trade will help my survival the most? I'm guessing carpentry.

      Nutjobs abound, anon. We hired a guy who was pretty incompetent and stupid, but we let him slide for a few days hoping he would catch on. Then he missed a day of work because of car trouble, which turned out to be that he was driving without a lug wrench because HE WAS CONCERNED ABOUT IDENTITY THEFT. You can't make this shit up.

      I hope OP doesn't show up for carpentry work without any tools BECAUSE OF THE RISK OF IDENTITY THEFT. kek.

        You just haven't seen his side of things. I used to post a lot on social media, on public pages, and once the employees at HR catch a glimpse of what they perceive as racist, misogynist, or anything they deem "weird" then they start giving you that look like they have figured you out completely. Then the "tests" start at work, where there isn't a clear pass/fail. Meaning employee could be excellent at his job, but because he rubs someone in HR the wrong way, why let's just keep putting them through the wringer! Enough of that will make a guy paranoid about a lot of things, one might be his identity being stolen. Shit, in Florida identity theft is so common that almost everyone's identity has been compromised, and that means you don't get a refund from the IRS, or it might mean you can't get a line of credit. Humans are truly despicable, and it's not always the guys who seem off that are guilty.

        What does a lug wrench have to do with identity theft?

        Based. And yes Carpentry or handyman because you need to learn a bit of everything. I had the same thought pattern and ended up drifting between laboring jobs, roofing, landscaping, bricklaying, handyman, surveying, left every job because I couldn't stand the people I was working with.

        I worked with a civil engineer who thought the purpose of the wings on passengers jets was only to hold up the engines. I asked him if that was true, why did the wings stick out so far beyond the engines? He replied he did not know.

        Idk man you seem like a jerk tbqh, but it could be thats not your fault since in your country anyone with a carpenter job is a carpenter without having to go through 3 years training and passing a test designed by the carpenters guild which will get you onto a list along carpenters who lived 700 years ago.

    From what little I know about living off grid I’d guess carpentry too. The more you can learn the better though. I’d go and learn some electricity and welding too

    Poor OP, even using the moronic notion that people in 1963 were going " thank God WW2 is over, now we can get pregnant!", he' still only got a handful of years before every single "shiteating screaming boomer" hits retirement age and gives even less of a frick about him and his mewling pleas of victimhood.

    Apply/lobby for UBI or reparations, and/or become a professional mostly peaceful protestor.

    OP, your wish is admirable, and I truly hope the best for you. With that said, learn a trade that touches on several other trades, that will provide you with comfort, peace of mind, and a decent salary if you can withstand the abuse from cynical boomers. Learn HVACR, as it teaches you about electrical, pressures, carpentry, and welding (or braising, but stick welding isn't too far off from braising). This trade will open up opportunities for you to earn a decent wage, and say "frick you" to the Union, as they are absolute trash. It will also allow you to fix your own furnace/heat pumps/air conditioners/refrigerators, and allow you to live in comfort and store food correctly. Oh yeah, and did I say "frick the Union?" yet? I did? Well I'll say it again. FRICK THE UNION.

    Carpentry probably because you do a bit of everything and basically have to be there for the whole building process of a building

      How come there are supposedly so many vets on the streets if military pays such fat reparation? Do you have to lose multiple limbs/eyes/whatever to qualify&get_approved or is simply psychological harm not recognized by the brass?

    You guys all say carpentry not knowing what the frick you are talking about.
    Being a b***h standing up pre fab walls for a mcmansion isnt going to help.

    Building maintenance. Not the most glamorous, perhaps, but you'll touch everything. Theres a whole lot more to buildings than studs, and frankly any image of how a window is frames or just staring at the walls in a stick framed garage for a while kinda teaches you 85% of what you need to know for simple framing.
    Fixing problems that show up, and re doing poor work that fails will teach you way more. Youll see where the studs are. Dont make a career of that

    You can just slap shit together and hope it works good enough for most things. Electricity, water, construction. If it fricks up you fix it. Food is the one area not to goof up. You can go a couple days without power or lugging buckets of water up to the house. Just unfrick it when you get a chance. If you don't have any food then you could die within weeks, and it takes longer than that to make it. Also it's a lot easier to sell food than your extra time as unlicensed uninsured contractor.

    I live alone off the road system on a property in a cabin i built myself. it is a very cold climate and i am gone for weeks at a time for work (heavy industry) so i don't keep animals or farm but i do shoot some critters and fish on occasion.
    i built my cabin by myself and had some friends for the parts that were sketchy but i could have just spent much longer doing it without help

    what you want is money because being excellent at one aspect of living in hermitage will only help you a little bit overall and money will help you a lot overall

    things you will learn
    >safely clearing land
    >processing firewood and milling lumber
    >construction
    >trail maintenance
    >accomodating and predicting effects of weather
    >small engine maintenance and repair
    >firearms
    >keeping wildlife at bay
    >cooking
    >logistics of fuel, firewood, food, water, parts, building materials
    >ingratiating yourself with locals (you will want their help at some point)
    >coping with severe loneliness

    >possibly animal husbandry
    >possibly gardening and farming
    >possibly hunting fishing and foraging
    >possibly dealing with snowmachines/four wheelers

    you don't need to be a genuine expert at any of these things, you can just be generally crafty, learn about things online and slowly ease into the more sketchy stuff
    your needs may vary but it is much better to stockpile money than try to learn one particular skill by working a low paying job if that is your dilemma
    getting started on this stuff is much more expensive than most people realize

    Don't do carpentry for a living. Good skill to learn on your own, but there is a reason all framing is immigrant labor now. I would recommend being a plumber/pipe fitter, or millwright for all around knowledge
