  • Going off the grid

    If you were to wake up one morning and needed to disappear immediately and fall off the grid completely, where would you go and why?

    Assume all you have is a car with a full tank of gas, backpack full of bug out clothes, $150 cash, fishing rod, knife, paracord, a handful of flies, a tent and sleeping bag.

    Asking for a friend.
    I am officially upgrading Gatorbyte from "fly in my ointment" to "thorn in my side". If he happens to elevate himself to "pain in my a$$" I'm gonna blame it on RScott.

    Your friend should reach out to Eric Robert Rudolph for guidance.

          Head south, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi or Louisiana. Lots of game, fish, heat is easier to survive than cold; tourist are common you could slip in and out of the towns, casinos, etc. Gasoline is cheaper.

              You can spend a long time in the national forest abutting the GSMNP without running into anyone. Basically a rain forest. Easy to live off the land.

                  LOL; if you want folks to avoid you then aggressively ask them for a handout! I see it every day down here.

                    So do I. That's why it would be a perfect hide out.

                      These are the only two so far that make sense to me. Keep the ideas coming.

                            Off the grid? I'm about as far off grid as you can get and still be on grid.
