Campsites for Survival - I mean really.

    Sometimes if you're low on cash and want a new start, you can book a campsite for around 10 USD a night, at the low end. However, though, it might be a bit rough for fall and winter and if you're starting a new job somewhere, the gasoline to go from the campsite to the job could be a pain. Also, you would have to deal with no traditional bathing - which could cause problems with a job, unless you can figure out how to "fake it".

    ...that's an experience I've never had and sure that it is one that I don't want to have.

    I know someone that did that, at least until late in the winter. He was in between jobs, and down on his luck. Of course a lot of it was due to his wild and carefree lifestyle.

    I just finished reading a book based on a true story about a guy living in the woods of Maine for 27 years. He stole, what he needed, from the local community. He knew it was wrong. They caught him about 5 years ago. I remember hearing about when it happened. It was interesting reading about what he said he was thinking, and how he survived that long only meeting with one passer-by and just saying hello.

    I couldn't do living in a tent. I enjoy camping, but that is only a temporary thing.

    I think it would be an adventure and I think someone could survive. I mean, it's kind of like one of those Naked and Afraid shows. However, It has to be far more easier! Do you all think it would be easier?

    Why would people possibly assume such a person was a thief?

    In the past 2 decades, all of the camping trips that I had joined were in camping resorts which have facilities and safety is guaranteed. But in the olden times when I was younger, I had never tasted a camping trip in a paid campsite. We always camp in an open forest or in a mountain side. There was a time that we camped by the riverside for 2 nights. It was one of the most enjoyable camping trips that I experienced. And during those camping years, it was a big challenge because scouting in this part of the world was a serious matter that it is like your survival every time you go on camping.

    What exactly are the obstacles?

    I wouldn't try that in my area cause there are too many private gun owners! But anyway, even the situation I mentioned is using paid campsites - usually the cheapest, often found on bnb sites.
