I'm just curious if there's anyone out there in the national forests living free of this messed up social system that just chews people up and spits them out.

Hud, if you haven't considered a season of tree-planting, especially in the PNW / Canada's West Coast, definitely consider it. You may not get along with the other freaks and weirdos out there, but the main thing is you get out there and live off the land and make some decent money you can put down on a chunk of land after a season or two.

Alternatively there's Asia. That's where I am. Cheap living, usually warm, real people, but the language barrier keeps you nicely distanced (and fortunately or unfortunately privileged; i.e. english teaching opportunities everywhere, limited rule of law and leniency on law enforcement, etc.). Cambodia is real, really real, and dirty cheap, and wild or farmland pretty much everywhere outside of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battambang, Sihanoukville areas (Snooky is being colonized by the Chinese). I like Cambo, personally, more than Thailand -- Thailand has been taken over by "adventurous" Kens and Barbies looking for the "full moon party" that died years ago. But north Thailand, up around Chiang Mai, is mountainous and still wild. The downside of these places, including others like China, is that you usually need to be a citizen or, more commonly, married to a citizen, to buy land. And the "communist" among them stipulate about 40 year land "leases", rather than ownership. This is my current obstacle course I'm trying to run.

I agree about buying land; I thought about squatting for many years, but at least up here in Canada, "crown land" (which means public land owned by the government) is a tricky situation. The old timers, when we go hunting, tell stories about guys having their camps/squats burned down by "conservation officers" (wilderness police). So, personally, I've decided to save up money and make a place somewhere with a bit of legal deed.

Pass your shit on, or have a garage sale, or use it to furnish your Mom's house and rent it out through a property management company for continual passive income.

Anyway, that's my take on it all. Good luck, brother.

    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.
