Promise I'm going back to read every post on this thread. For now just let me say I have survived in central america 150 miles from the nearest outhouse, much less running water, for 6 months at a time. Brand new to the survivalist community and wanting to learn a lot. But as far as bugs, sleeping on the ground, purifying water, etc. I don't think I'd have a problem.

This is such an individual choice and success will be based on nothing more than your will to be there. Nothing more.
I've learned a lot in my life. The most important is this, "if it has been done, it can be done."

I'm new to this forum, but this thread reached out and grabbed me.

We live "out", and have for many years. Started with just the raw land. No running water (other than the creek that runs by), electricity or any abode other than a tent for three years. I miss it so much. We've built a structure, have running water and electricity now. It's kind of a burden. I spend far more time outside, in one of the gardens or with the chickens or whatever than I do indoors. Happy to be here, and hello to all. Always more to learn and share.

I would like to know of locations or good maps showing all of the free spots to pitch a tent and actually camp while I hike across this country. Any information would be highly appreciated.
Once you find your way to the west, you can stay on any National Forest Service ground or BLM land for 14 days, then you have to move someplace else. These lands are well depicted on local maps and there is a lot of it west of the Mississippi.

I want to do this.

Well, not for a year, and not alone, and not without a marginally good reason. I’m hoping to get on a Russian reality TV show that’ll send 30 people to spend 9 months on a 1000-hectare island on the River Ob, Tomsk Oblast, in the Siberian Taiga. Those of us who can handle the bears, the wolves, the -40 degree winter, each other, (and the mice and insects, which is what really scares me) and who don’t tap out or die by April of next year will get a total prize of 100,000,000 rubles (which ain't that much if you consider the 30-way split and the chunk that the IRS will take, but still worth doing methinks).

More information:

If anyone can offer advice for how a sunburned Alabama boy can come back from Gulag Country in one piece, I’d be very happy to hear it.
