    Im an ex-special operations, spiritual minded, nature oriented, music loving guy looking for someone interested in ... well.. just about anything. I currently receive some money every month so I've got the freedom to go anywhere and do anything. Thing is, I've already done it all. I figure there's probably someone out there looking for some adventure but might need some security or some additional financing to make it happen. I like to party and am drug friendly. I'm a loving, good-vibes kind of person, but I also embrace moral ambiguity. Lets go an adventure, just tell me what you have in mind.

    My name is Darrius. I'm trying to across the country backpacking, camping, and hunting. I want to get this all on YouTube and social media. I really want to do a 60 day adventure. Just perusing America and seeing what it all has to offer. Especially during these times of confusion.

    What about: (A) Kayaking all the way down the Mississippi, to the gulf, (B) Thru-hiking the AT, or (C) sea-kayak from Seattle to... south. Far. And camp along the way.
    Got a passport?

    I'd like to make a good tree camping hammock out of Tyvek. Like: http://www.mosquitohammock.com/bathammock.html ,, Not the exact thing, but close enough. Carbon fiber rods run round inside of the whole hammock, giving it stability. Large enough for two. Make a good Tyvek rain tarp system so the hammock can enclose tight enough to keep out the rain and allow some privacy. I also would like to master tree camping, like the treefool guy does, but with a mind to using all this in order to help budget travelers like myself.. Sort of as an outreach to anyone who might need an alternative to homeless shelters, I would teach the system and then give the hammock on proof of competency ..

    Some sort of VEHICLE is key, to increase mobility. I think about kayaks and bikes. But kayaks are expensive.
    I got a bike for cheap.
    Now I need those saddlebag things, to carry all muh junk.
    I'm getting really sick of conventional society, and grinding.
    Prison Break.

    or..... buy a 30 or 40ft single-mast sailboat, and Darrius and I will join your crew.
    Sail south, from NY. We'll get our sea legs in the gulf of mexico. Then... on to the carribean, and Costa Rica.

    I was thinking of finding an old pontoon boat to convert into a houseboat and floating to the Gulf.. Kayak might do also..

    Pontoon craft could be more comfy at times.
    Kayak or canoe could be more maneuverable. And you could (albeit not easily) portage, if push came to shove. (pun intended.)

    a pontoon with living quarters isn't going to portage... that's what a canoe/kayak is for. a journey on the Mississippi wouldn't need portage capabilities. but definatly would need the house aspect of it. I think it would be an epic adventure

    I gotta plan for the unexpected. And I don't trust man; the most dangerous animal.
    I'll portage whenever I feel the need to disappear from the water Avenue.
    Weather can be unpredictable, rising waterlines, construction along the rivers, or any other reason that some roughneck with a hard hat, badge, name tag, or bureaucratic credential and perceived authority is going to accost poor ol' rob.
    I need to have control, be flexible.
    If I had a big pontoon, and I'd constructed it to fit my ways and all that, I'm gonna have trouble throwing it away should I reach some unforeseen 'dead end'.
    If I were a police-type-savior-of-men hero action figure guy, and I saw Huck & Jim putting down the old muddy, I'd race to the next overpass and hassle them about their business.
    All the jackboots do is look for trouble, and they're aware that poor people are far less likely to defend themselves when they fall into the spiderwebs of man-made laws.
    "Don't harass me about my pontoon, please. I've still got miles to go. But if there's any emergency I'll call. -you're number's still 9-1-1?"
