IAMA 21 year old male who's lived outside for over two years of my life. I'm a capable woodsman, here to answer your questions. AMA
I've spent over two years of my life living outside, camping. I've spent one summer living indoors since I was 12 or thirteen. I've lived under tarps, in caves, and tents. I've slept in cabins, adirondacks, and nothing. I've slept in hammocks and cowboy-roll bags.
When I was 18, I spent three months living off off less than $200. I've gone months without showers or running water. I've hidden from park rangers, and etc. I've taught wilderness survival and other outdoorsy skills. I've woken up with ticks crawling on my face, and I've spent nights shivering and doing pushups to stay alive.
I've literally walked into a bear once. I've touched things that no one ever has before.
I've hallucinated from lack of water, and gone days without eating.
Canadians ripped off my wine money once. Bastards.
I was taught how to drink whiskey by other outdoorsmen with beards.
I've seen death enough times to know his name is Stan.
*Edit Just messaged the mods with what I hope is proof. Waiting to hear back
*Edit They gave me a partial verification. I can't prove that I've lived in the woods, but I sent them a few neato photos.
*Edit Some people floated the idea of a book. Would anyone be interested in that? Let me know
