I love the advice, I was hoping that this site could network me up with a few people in the areas I wanna go t o, and along the way from here to there(s) so that I could be more confident of my route and to be as sure as I can be about my safety. I'll put this, and the other great nuggets of wisdom I've been collecting, in my notebook.@SusanahOfGilead - I admire your confidence & I don't want to undermine your determination - however, please don't ignore what everyone is saying. While traveling, make folks/friends aware of your locations and destinations & check in with them; link up with a road dog if you can; (try to) strategize so you're not forced to make hasty (desperate) decisions - hitching at night, for example. AND - if you're not completely put off by what everyone's handing you here - keep us posted!
You're absolutely right.
word you know, it's just one of those things - like, i don't *want* it to be that way, but, it'd be disingenous to say otherwise, so I choose the lesser of two evils, by acknowledging and accepting reality, so that I may have a chance at fostering some growth and enjoyment, lol, anyway word, there's a million ways to travel "alternatively", hope ya have some good experiences with whatever you decide!You're absolutely right.
Thanks, man. I definitely don't want to make some rookie mistake and end up on the five I clock news. I was homeless in KC,mo for about five years, and I think a lot of what I learned then will help me on my way. You guys are giving me a TON of great advice that I will not forget.word you know, it's just one of those things - like, i don't *want* it to be that way, but, it'd be disingenous to say otherwise, so I choose the lesser of two evils, by acknowledging and accepting reality, so that I may have a chance at fostering some growth and enjoyment, lol, anyway word, there's a million ways to travel "alternatively", hope ya have some good experiences with whatever you decide!
Thanks, I'll keep you posted on my travels, and I hope I'll tell you stories of how the advice of everyone here helped Dave me from disaster.you seem like you got a solid head on yr shoulders, and if you´ve already been homeless for 5 years, you got yr teeth cut more than yr average person who is seeking an escape. you know shit aint easy. So, not to reiterate anything stated itt, just good luck
He barely survived 100 days in Alaska by pure luck. The dude had no business being out there knowing as little as he did. He also died like what less then a mile away from a bridge that would of helped him cross the river he was unable to cross? Not exactly a well prepared person.Chris McCandless survived 100 on the Alaskan wilderness, I think we can agree he had a pretty good idea of what he was doing,
In the book it's clear that nobody really knows what he died of, but he was pretty unlucky, half a mile down the river there was a pass or at least a cabin where he could have communicated.
100 days alone in Alaska, that's pretty bad ass. Too bad the river was raging. I think that kid wanted to go back to civilization and just got really bad luck. I respect him a lot.
It's just a side note.
I don't really care if op finds her death or not, we don't know each other and thousands of strangers die everyday. I wish she'd live though. I wish everyone would live, but again, maybe I need to talk more often to that dude named God that she keeps talking about
