For some, the move towards rewilding is a long process that involves drudging through civ life in order to procure the funds to purchase property to rewild on. As a result of the significant investment of time towards gaining the financial ability to rewild, less time is devoted to developing the hands on skills.
For some, the move towards rewilding is a long process that involves sacrificing financially in order to have the time to devote to gaining the necessary hands on skills.
Do you see the paradox?
Skills and abilities are key, however, civ requires that certian rules be observed (unless you really like getting harassed/jailed). Financial ability is necessary to remain within the rules dictated by Civ.
A true rewild lifestyle is significantly void of income opportunities of any reliable nature.
I keep coming back to the same conclusion. Every tribe will need a mixture of those that bring financial ability, regardless of skill level, and those who posess high levels of necessary skills, regardless of financial ability.
Here is the my question…
1.) Do you think that there will be a single event that will trigger a sudden mass movment to rewild, or do you think it will be gradual and unnoticed.
[ I think that rewilding will be partly by choice, and partly out of necessity as, over a period of several years, the collapse of the economy forces people to take their existance into their own hands.]
2.) Do you expect to cooperate with future demands that may be made of you by representatives of civilization (Police/Taxes/Forest Rangers/ New Laws etc.) or do you intend to ignore/resist them?
[I intend to squat and ignore, living a semi nomadic lifestyle migrating between a summer and winter location that is separated by only 14 miles, but 4000 feet in elevation. Remain unseen, and run if necessary.]
3.) Do you intend to maintain open contact with civilization, or “step away”?
[I intend to step away, only returning to aquire any necessities I discover I need, yet had not anticipated.]
4.) How do you intend to handle contact with other rewilders/unknown people you come across or who come across you?
[I think that they will probably be there for the same reason I am so intend to welcome them, unless they give me reason not to.]
5.] What are your criteria for partners/tribe members?
[ I have had limited time to search for others, so have not put much thought into this.]
Just wondering if my point of view is similar to yours.
