Hi /out/, I'm a complete newfag to this board, but after researching Chris McCandless/Alex Supertramp a bit, I was thinking of doing something similar to what he did (except for eating seeds from an Alaskan Potato and dying). I'm tired of living in a big city and something like this looks like it would be an amazing experience. Should I do it?

bump

>>1133769
Duh of course you should do it. You should leave today!
>>
>>1133776
I'll probably take a few days or weeks to get prepared, as I said, I'm not a regular here and I don't hike as often.
>>
>>1133778
Nah just go you'll be fine
>>
>>1133778
Yeah dude. Don't worry about preparation too much cause you'll be fine no matter what. Just go now

Do you want to become a vagabond or run away and live in the woods?
>>
>>1133805
This. Thinking too hard about it would ruin the moment.

Tbh honest anon I'm with these guys, just head out tomorrow morning with a few snacks
A good pair of trainers such as your Nikes is a good idea too

b-but what did he say...?
>>
>>1134498
must have been deleted, said something about being in highschool

Do it! Especially do the part where you kayak class 5 rapids with no experience.
It'll be a really fun thing to do before you spend the winter in Alaska by yourself in a bus

>tfw mentally ill man dies doing something stupid yet still somewhat interesting. Some jew comes along and writes a book to appeal to 20somethings who feel disconnected from society. Then another jew comes along and makes a fuckload of cash with a movie, and every little snowflake with daddy's credit card can hike 30 minutes for a picture of the magic bus to put on Instagram and their tinder profile.
>then every newfag on /out/ makes a thread asking about it

>>
>>1133769
Oh look, it's the weekly societal drop out looking to pull a McCandless.
At least learn how to butcher animals before wasting an entire moose REEEEE

What's wrong with Chris McCandless?
>>
>>1138656
He died.
>>
>>1138656

>fertishizing poverty
>hurt durr no skills let's live in the worst conditions ever
>dies from berry poisoning because too dumb and "educated" to double check
>>
>>1138764
did u even read the story? he didn't eat berries, it was a type of seed that is normally eaten but it was infected with a type of mold
>>
>>1138771

Are you OP? If so I hope you are catching on to the jist of the replies in this thread and the sarcasm.
>>
please do. i intend to myself soon (not to alaska though). don't listen to these fags, they just wish they could do the same, but they would rather larp here. only you are stopping yourself friend. good luck and stay safe.
>>
>>1138789
I just think his 'woah, man, like its all bullshit' attitude is just that, bullshit.
>>
>>1138801
i think your thoughts of him having a "woah, man, like its all bullshit" attitude is bullshit.. it doesn't seem like that at all. he wants to get out of the city. why would anyone want to live in one?
>>
>>1138807
Right, humans as social animals have no reason to live in a city....
I obviously love the outdoors, dude. But no one is special because they get fed up with urban life
>>
Just off yourself my dude its quicker
>>
>>1138810
not all of us are social animals.

Whatever dude, ragequit life, ya edgelod

I live in NZ and planning on moving out to live in my van / hammock in the bush, though I will still travel to town for supplies. I get social allowance every week but make money under the table with fur and devils lettuce.

I don't agree with Chris's extremist views of society but the idea of embracing nature and freedom by becoming a nature gypsy is awesome.
>>
>>1138828
what are you talking about? the outdoors is life. it is where are most human. it is the most of life you can get. you will not find greater experiences in the city.
>>
Hey guys i just turned 19 and am homeless for 5 months. Im going to go to alasko to be like chris mcandless.

I have zero camp and hiking experience.

Reccomend me gear. I have a 120$ budget.
