Hello everybody! My name is Sam and I'm a 22yr old from the Bay Area in California. I've always loved being in nature and the outdoors, and over the last few years (college), I've grown more and more sick of modern life. We live with so much comfort, that we've forgotten how our ancestors lived in order for our species to get where it is today. My intention is to more or less go back to the Stone Age and live a life with no money, no car, no electricity, etc. I have been studying and practicing primitive shelter, tool, and weapon building, a well as hunting and trapping, and am eager to leave the modern life behind.

I am looking for suggestions on locations where I could live an isolated, primitive life. Preferably with a climate similar to the Bay Area, however I do know that snow would allow me to store meat much easier. So I'm open to any and all suggestions! Thanks for taking the time :)

Whoa! Tight. Best of luck. Ive come to basically agree with the less is more primitive mentality, but on a less extreme form than this.

This is kind of what I want to do. But also remember we weren’t solitary creatures. We lived in tribes. It can get quite lonely, it might be good to get a buddy or something to do this with.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
