For some time now I have been unimpressed by our modern civilization. I won’t burden you with all the particulars but suffice it to say that life in the city left me feeling quite unsatisfied.

So I decided to make a change. I got rid of everything I owned, quit my job, terminated my housing agreement and headed off into the wilderness with what I could carry on my back.

I set out on the Fourth of July: Independence Day in America. I have celebrated the joy of discovering freedom every day since. That was over three years ago.

This blog will serve to chronicle the events and circumstances encountered before and since, and reveal the insights gleaned along the way.
