What a story you have to tell. It’s really interesting to hear an insider’s POV.
I also grew up in the country. Lived in some weird places, from barns to school buses. We roughed it hardcore when I was a kid, and all of the has stuck with me.
I also have experience living homelessly. Six months living in the streets of New Mexico.
I’m not really concerned about making money. The point for me is to get away from money completely. Even if that means no man made shelters, or conveniences.
I know it’s gonna be hard, I have no delusions. But I am so ready to stop living this life I can’t stand.
You mention snow. I think I’ll need to go somewhere that doesn’t get too cold. 12 feet? I can’t even imagine!
