Just wondering , "What is the longest" , time you've spent off the grid..? No out side help , not military but totally on your own.! All you have is what you carried in or can forage , How long..? Me , the longest I've been removed was 6 1/2 months..! Between fishing and foraging , I spent with my gear and a canoe..! (THE Great Dismal Swamp)..! Was very tough at times . Deer fly's , greased lightening and one hell of a wallop! Hate them . This time was spent on the border of Southern Virginia and North Carolina..! A million snakes and them Danged Fly's..! Eeeek..! The second longest time was the "Appalachian Trail" over 4 months..! To all those who wish to free themselves , Well , if I can do it , so can anybody else..! Should be way simpler out of a stable home with all prep. done , peace of cake..!
