Looking for someone, or a few people that are interested in going off grid for the winter. We'd build a nice shelter, fire pit, etc. I have the skills for this and if you do too that would work great. Trying to get this going asap.
If you have a car, I have gas money-but would have to figure out where to store the car.
Or, we could train hop into the middle of nowhere, if you know how to do that- as I've yet to do it but would love to.
Open to other suggestions.
Let's do this.

Depends where you plan on doing this, and how rugged you'd want to go, but starting from scratch in the winter sounds like a bad idea to me :/ Usually it's better to build something in the warmer months and then stalk up on supplies to help ease into the winter months when food is practically non - existent.

This year has been offputting as hell for me in regards to transitioning into offgrid wilderness living. In almost every possible way. I had clearly defined goals that took me three years to wittle out in the back of my mind, and that i was going to finally set in motion with 2017.

I will skip the boring details and just wish you luck. Its a tantalizing thought, finding a secretly accessible place out in the wilderness to call home away from home. a hideout. a library. a tool box. and most importantly, perfect quiet.

Thanks. Yes, winter is brutal where I'm going but it's been done before. I guess I'll do it and if I perish doing it at least I went out living fully and doing what I love. Although, I have a positive mindset and a lot of wilderness living skills and experience.

@angerisagift. You're completely wrong! I have many friends who've created a life waaay off grid and did just fine.
The only reason Kraukauer wrote about McCandless is because he died- then they turned it into this whole other thing.
I've also found most people that make half-assed comments have never actually spent ANY time out in the wilderness.

    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.

    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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $105.00 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.
