I'm planning on escaping society and living in the forest. It is an extremely cold place and very hard to access. I will be travelling on foot with a backpack and inflatable raft. What items are essential for my survival. I'm thinking...
1. Mushroom identification book
2. Thermal sleeping bag
3. Fire starters
4. A caged chicken to lay eggs
5. Fishing rod
What else do I need?
You won't survive what is coming
That’s funny because we’re all thinking the same thing about you
Says the retard newfag zoomer.
That's true he might need a few gays to start a fire.
I'm thinking maybe bring a life straw or something for clean water.
And if you can maybe don't stop at mushrooms and bring a book for identifying edible plants as well
Also I'd advise you not to actually do it, but if you really wanna I guess I can't stop ya
Why not actually do it though? I know a guy who found $20,000 worth of gold in creeks and rivers in a few days. These guys have to hike in and out of the forest which consumes most of their energy and time so they can maintain their lives with bills and family etc. I have come to the conclusion our modern lives are bad for the environment and our own health and psychology. I have the opportunity to escape the rat race. I would be far better of financially and mentally if I didn't have to work so I could pay bills just so I can be unhappy and a loser in society anyway. Why should I keep trying to participate in a society I hate? I can come out every so often to buy supplies, sell my gold and contact family if I choose to do so.
You're a fucking retard who will die. The whole "Waaaah I want to escape society waaaah give me attention please" thread get's posted every week and yet not a single one goes through with it. Take a holiday, go outside.
>1. Mushroom identification book
You will pick the wrong mushroom and die, go outside and meet someone experienced who can take you.
>2. Thermal sleeping bag
You're just going to sleep in the open for the rest of your life? Please do so natural selection can take you.
>3. Fire starters
What happens when they run out? Learn how to get a fire going from natural tinder.
>4. A caged chicken to lay eggs
Your chicken will get killed, even industrial farms have problems with foxes, dogs, and coyotes. When your chicken dies how will you get eggs?
>5. Fishing rod
Probably one of the only things you would actually need.
What about shelter? Water? First aid? You will die.
>I would be far better of financially and mentally if I didn't have to work
You sound like a fat lazy cunt, being in the forest alone is hard work.
A nuke will kill you too retard. You say that you're going to live in the forest then go and sell your gold to buy equipment, you're participating in that society by doing that you fucking idiot, you can't ride two horses with one ass.
My advice is to take a shower and get a job. Get a job in agriculture, your best bet is an accommodation provided situation (even then you sound like a cityfag). Also you have to be 18 or older to post here.
>found $20,000 worth of gold in creeks and rivers
That's called "claim jumping" and can unironically get you shot and buried in the woods.
i can't wait to read the news article about the recovery of your remains in 6 months
I can't wait to see your society collapse after the purifying, well deserved nuclear hellfire that awaits you. We will see who is laughing when I am living a life well insulated from catastrophe and you are a slave minded worker drone in your AI controlled, over expensive, unsustainable, fear driven dystopia where you are selling your ass to elite garden gnomes for a slice of bread.
Just because you saw a black person in a TV commercial doesn't mean the world is ending
No it is more the AI, the coming war with Russia and China, the forced "vaccine" agenda, the population control methods being rolled out, the toxic waste we are creating from industry, economic collapse from money printing, social unrest from the media purposefully inciting a race war, the drug and violent crime epidemics and biological warfare.
Almost all of those have been going on for a long time m8
But he was married to a white woman and they had an transgender asian child. Clearly a sign of the pending apocalypse has never been more clear!
>Just because you saw a black person in a TV commercial doesn't mean the world is ending
I argue the contrary and believe it's the leading indication.
>it's yet another basement dweller wants to pull a Chris McCandless thread
No you won’t. You’ll still be in mommy’s basement a year from now.
I assume you don't care about laws and permits by your post. So some stuff I'm suggesting will be illegal depending where you are.
Chicken is pointless, it will get picked off by a predator. Learn to find bird's eggs. Grouse are pretty thick this year, turkeys too. Geese and other waterfowl are also pretty easy to pick off even by hand if they are nesting. Just grab the goose by the neck and swing the body around to snap the neck. Honestly tho the meat isn't great.
Ditch the fishing rod and look at fish traps. You can pretty easily build them too...at least the ones that don't need cord.
A firearm for hunting. A .22 would be best for small game and the ammo is light. No point in hunting things larger than a racoon, the meat will go bad before you can eat it. Racoon paw trap or three maybe. Racoon are bold AF, and will literally just jam their fist into a trap if they think there's food in there. Easy dinner.
Books on bushcraft and hunting would be a must, especially one with how trap, preserve meat, and how to skin and clean game. Mess kit to cook and drink with.
Rope and line. Tarp. Knife. Axe. Map. Compass. Shovel. Quality scotch eye. That's enough to build a long term shelter like a dugout if you want to stay hidden or a cabin if you DGAF.
Where are you headed? Scout natural rock shelter near flowing water if you can. There are often hidden places no one will find without specifically looking for them. A cave would put you weeks ahead of the game.
Good luck with your LARP.
Update on my firearm suggestion. I forgot about .22/shotgun combos. Double Badger comes in .22lr/20 gauge. That can get you all the small game and fowl you need. With the 20 gauge and slugs you could even take deer.
>A caged chicken
I honestly can’t think of anything else you’d need. Looks like you’re set.
Unless there's a specific need, I don't see the value of the extra weight
Name one survival scenario that wouldn’t be improved by an inflatable raft.
Lost in death valley.
desert sucks way less in the shade
>PrepHole erry day!
>A caged chicken to lay eggs
lmao you are so dead
Okay but keep us updated
>planning on escaping society and living in the forest
lol this thread
every goddamn time
>What else do I need?
To grow up.
Not many can live like Forest Anon, and one thing you'll notice about the people who do is they usually just pack up and leave without telling anyone. They don't sit around chatting about it beforehand.
There is a screenshot where an anon messaged Forest Anon's friend on social media and his friend said he spent his life studying plants and spent more time in nature than most, and then one day he just left without saying anything. The real ones just up and go. This "live innawoods" craving is just a passing phase you'll grow out of. I recommend traveling or sight seeing or something if you're bored lol
You don't know me. I have probably spent more time in the forest than Forest Anon, my friends actually call me Forest Man (because I spend so much time in the Forest). I have been camping with my father for weeks at a time since I was a child. He also worked in remote areas and I never went to school in the first part of my life because I went to work with him instead. I have already moved away from my family and bought a house in one of the most remote locations in my country. The only reason I haven't moved into the Forest so far is because of several things stopping me. I have an elderly dog that can't walk very far, I own a house and a bunch of furniture and personal possessions I will have to throw away or store somewhere, I just got a job that's fairly high paying, I have a small business half started and my mother is begging me not to go and abandoning my financial obligations will just put me behind financially when I have just got in front. So I do alot of hiking and bushwalking but abandoning society is still a dream at this stage but in the next few years I will make it happen.
>I have probably spent more time in the forest than Forest Anon
you do realize he lives in the forest. you know.. like full time. we're talking sleeping in it at night and waking up in it in the morning. every morning. and he still stays humble about it. meanwhile youre talking mighty big for someone who made PrepHole larp thread number 18263917391 and hasn't left yet
Kys newfag larper. Go into the forest and suck his cock.
boy that's ironic considering you're the one who made another larp thread on PrepHole
>Go into the forest and suck his cock.
jealousy isnt a good look anon
op is jealous and it shows.
Not OP, but who's forest anon? I'm basically doing the same thing. I have a regular job, but I'd like to see what others are doing because I've just been winging it.
Guy who left home like five and a half years ago and lived in the desert before building a hut in the forest where he's been gardening, foraging, training mice and working horse ranches in town for extra cash. The FBI investigated him for seven months because they thought he was a terrorist. His file is 200 pages long and they were never able to find his place. He's still living out there today.
Need citations on the FBI story or I'm assuming it's all bullshit and a larp.
I work for a gov agency. When I see alleged recent documents in type writer fonts or things that look like they were printed on a 90's fax machine I'm immediately suHispanicious. I'll look at this over the weekend and see if these are real forms.
It always blows my mind that the feds went after a friendly hermit who simply gardens and talks to bears. America's government is insane for a nation that claims to be free...
He answers every question in his comments so he might have some good tips to share with you. It took him a couple weeks to answer the one I left but he still answered it and was suprisingly really patient with me
You're right I don't know you. But judging from your posts I can tell you're never going to make it. (For example a mushroom book and bringing a caged chicken into the fucking forest lmfao)
Sell everything and buy some acreage then. Fuck what your mom thinks and your dog will love it. You know you can have a job AND live innawoods, right?
>I'm planning on escaping society and living in the forest.
Trolling is forbidden outside /b/, dumbass newfag.
How is this "escaping society"?
You take modern knowledge, technology, equipment and even a food supply, and then go scrounge around in the woods surviving on your stores of body fat (you are way too retarded to get 2500+ calories of food a day), stores of body fat you built from modern foods.
So how is this an escape? You're still in society. All land is accounted for. You'll just be living in the type of land society has deemed 'nature reserve' or whatever, which is still governed by all manner of rules and regulations. Sure you can break those rules but the point remains that you haven't escaped society, you're just living within it, transgressing its rules.
OP is a retard and while this is true it's also just semantics. Of course you can never fully escape society but if OP would start being realistic and ditch the firestarter and chicken for seasonal farm work like forestanon he MIGHT get lucky and not die from starvation if a blizzard or his own naivete doesn't take him out first
>My advice is to take a shower and get a job. Get a job in agriculture, your best bet is an accommodation provided situation (even then you sound like a cityfag). Also you have to be 18 or older to post here.
This and /thread
I hope you realize that humans just like wolves can't survive on their own. The moment you run out of ammo or any of your modern tools break, you're dead.
No one will find me. I am anti guns anyway and am very friendly with animals I meet, they can sense I am good and kind.
You will starve, retard. The same way a wolf starves when it's all alone.
Good luck trying to hunt raccoons with your shitty homemade pvc bow.
Oh...oh oh oh. Yeah now I agree with the others, you're dead. Animals don't give a fuck about you. To them you're either something they can eat or something that will eat them. You're not a Disney princess. Go hug a bear, see how that goes.
There are no bears or wolves or any of that stupid shit where I live.
He is some rip off copy of Forest Man. I heard a rumour that Forest Man is going to challenge "ForestAnon" to a boxing match soon.
are you 12? this is cringe and it's obvious what you're doing. its not a good way to get elevated into legendary status like forestanon if thats what your goal is here.
look at that one fag with the mustache who copied forestanon. nobody really followed him or even talks about him now because he wasn't likable and had no redeeming qualities
>It's cool Mr. Bear, I'm your friend 🙂
What happened to "we're all sheep and your leaving the matrix"? You are a fuckhead, but that is okay because fuckheads like you have made over 100 threads about this. You need to grow up, lurk moar and actually go outside. Now shut the fuck up and let this thread die please.
I'm middle aged, not a newfag or need tp lurk more, I am a big part of this boards culture. I never said anything about the matrix or sheep. I go hiking all the time. Everything you said is a perception in your own mind of what you think I am. You have very little ability to understand my indiviual predicament, which is a plausible reality, if it wasn't, I wouldn't be posting. Sorry sweetie, hope you are okay with that.
>1. Mushroom identification book
>2. Thermal sleeping bag
>3. Fire starters
>4. A caged chicken to lay eggs

This must be bait. Please tell me it's bait.
Also, fuck those "IMMA LEAVE SOCIETY! THIS TIME IM CEREAL YOU GUYS, SO STOP LAUGHING!" threads.
Where in Australia are you located OP?
I live in Europe
Bring a satellite phone so you can get rescued when you inevitably fuck your ankle down a gully 60km from the nearest road.
Watch Forest Anon and maybe you will drop the Daniel Boone fantasy and be a little more pragmatic about living in the wilderness of the modern world
I'm Forest Man, ForestAnon stole my idea of living in the woods. I thought of it first.
He's been in the forest for 5 years.
>I'm Forest Man
AKA a literal who
>ForestAnon stole my idea of living in the woods. I thought of it first.
If it was your idea then why are you still not living in the woods yet? The concept of living in the woods is as old as modern history. Even Thoreau wasn't the first if you look at the anchorites from the early centuries.
Might want to make your name another way gay Man. Get a job and act like an adult. The "getting famous for living Innawoods" ship has already sailed because Forestanon and every other mountain man that did it already beat you to it
>people live in the woods 2 million years ago
>monks flee to the wilderness to escape greed, vice and persecution
>transcendentalists become vanguards for preaching a return to simple life in the woods

>OP remains in bedroom
>OP still refuses fill out a resume
Proof you're just in it for clout and don't really want to move to the woods out of some kind of noble principle.
Hello, I live in the forests of Appalachia in the American South, where a lot of people live normal modern lives as farmers and fishermen and gator hunters and so on. I am employed, I have a job. I used to build houses, then I wrote books, moving on to killing hogs, coyotes, mountain lions, alligators, and so on for a living.
I'd recommend rural living over trying to become a primitive feral man, but I cannot stop you. You might need a hospital at some point, and herbal remedies can only do so much.
Survival is a lot easier if you have a weapon and/or traps to catch fish or hunt wild game, that solves most of your food question pretty quickly. However, with laws and regulations, this may require licenses or get you in trouble with the law.
A lot of the veterans from the Vietnam War were still living in the forest of Washington state after the war, deciding not to be a part of normal society after seeing children killed by napalm and grenade launchers and so on and so forth.
They lived in the forests for decades, hunting and fishing, camping and with cabins and shelters, some of them had guerilla cannabis grows protected by non-lethal Viet Cong style booby traps to scare off thieves and make money to buy basic stuff.
>Let's go fight the commies
>Actually go and genocide women and children
>Now come home and work at Burger King
>Nah fuck that going off innawoods
Actual Vietnam War combat veterans
>Actually you are all just fucking toxic, ignorant losers bitching and ganging up on someone on the internet
Where do you think you are lmao
work. save all your money. ALL of it. no restuarants no snacks cook all your meals buy nothing.
buy an extremely remote property. alaska/canada wherever wtvr. build a house/live in ur vehicle on the property/pay someone to build you a house
learn survival skills/grow some small scale crops/hunt/forage etc
eventually you'll have the skills to be self reliant. truly independent. truly free.
there u go. now you have a free and honorable life out of the pathetic rat race. your plan cant just be to walk off into the woods and find a bunch of gold.
this is a good start, but here is a few extra things you will likely need
1. A good survival knife. Personally, I've found that a high quality karambit is the best for this.
2. wire saw
3. slingshot for hunting
4. pole net for catching small game
6. astronomy guide for reading stars
7. truffle hog
8. laser pointer
good luck, and don't let the /in/ losers itt get you down, they don't know shit about survival. I've been surviving the wilderness all my life and my experience is greater than anyone else here. I believe in you 🙂
You need nothing but your heart and soul anon
