In general it's better for children to have a stable environment. Honestly, I'd rather hang out with real tribes.
I love it. Could I survive for long, at my age? I have doubt, but I'm intrigued. I don't know if I could adapt to tribal living. Cooperative efforts are challenging for me.
My current dream is walking the Appalachian trail from Maine to Georgia, starting next April and hopefully surviving to see the light change in October. I love nomadic life, traveling, seeing what's on the other side of a mountain. I've done it, all across North America, well above Mexico that is. I've never been there; but then I do prefer cooler climates, more forest than jungle. The thing is I love our little patch too. We have land, a house with all of our possessions, out buildings, gardens, a small orchard, and then there's the vehicles. By some standards it's not much but it's ours and walking away from it all would be very difficult.
What are we, if not dreamers? Once the hope die inside of us, we're already dead. From that point on we're either to stubborn or too stupid to lay down long enough to be buried.
Thanks a bunch. I'm going to look into that.
they need to barter for a comb...
No. It's pretty boring. I and some friends roughed it a couple of times in wilderness areas for a month at a time some years ago. Only one person thought to bring a book. That book was some cheap bodice-ripper paperback novel from an airport gift shop and it got read to pieces, everyone read it, women and men, over and over again until it was falling apart. We sang songs around the campfire, but you'd be surprised at how quickly you lose both the days of the week and stuff like story plots and song lyrics.
I can see how ancient people had sex a lot or worked on craft projects. There isn't much to do once you've got enough food to eat, you've washed, and collected firewood. You could light a campfire and stay up late, but why? You just end up aimlessly talking or staring at the fire. You might as well go to bed with the sun and get up with the sun.
Thus the invention of religion and myth!
Ha! You've nailed it.
Sounds real exciting
cabins sounds better , right next to a creek.
