Do you think you could survive a week in the remote wilderness? Why or why not?

Not necessarily with nothing, but a backpack with some provisions, a tent, etc.

    I don't know if I would survive, but I would like to live in the remote wilderness for the rest of my life, how ever long that may be. Need to buy some land though, can't just live anywhere nowadays :(

    I think you can pretty much go anywhere on federal land, but not sure. I think there's a rule that you have to move every 14 days.

  • Wellll believe it or not people do, even here..  OK not remote wilderness but we have a guy who has lived in a tent for years and years in a patch of woodland/scrub..  You only see his tent in Winter..

    10 days at an unimproved camp and 3 days at an improved campsite.  20 years and you have  homestead rights  if you aren't told to move or been removed.

  • Yes, and I'd love it. Make it summer time, though, please? I could, because it's right up my alley. This post was edited by Benedict Arnold at January 10, 2017 3:14 PM MST

    A week?  No problem.   That's just a vacation.

    I thought everyone who did that in Alaska ended up bear food. Like that Tim dude. I might want to check that out. Thanks.

    Once upon a time, sure. Nowadays? I'd be lucky to last two days.

    Don't sell yourself short, I'm sure you could teach the younger folks quite a bit.

    Thanks, Tammy, but although the spirit is still willing the flesh is stuffed.

  • A week?  And I get all the necessary stuff to sleep in, eat, light fires, etc?  I don't have to wrestle bears or anything?

    Give me a couple of good books and I'm all set.  :)

    I can't guarantee what critters may be there, depends on where you go.

  • As long as they're smaller, weaker and slower than I am, easy to prepare and tasty, I don't really care.  :)
