Have you ever just wanted to drop out of society?

It's hard being a cult of personality in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.  The job is demanding and to be honest, when people make me angry I just blow them away with anti-aircraft fire.  Most would believe that is very anti-social behavior.  But, it's the only way I know how to deal with my feels!  I'm looking at you Goat.

So, I have been looking for good camping equipment.  Even though The North Face company is part of the capitalist pig dog system, I fancy their logo which means I'm naturally gravitating towards buying one of their tents.  Kim is a simple man.  

For all you camping pig dog capitalists out there, which company do you honor your American dollars with?

Dear Dong:

As an unapologetic Capitalist Goat, I recommend dealing with REI.  They are a good company and make good profits.  You Kim Dong can get everything you need there.   Well, almost everything.  For ammo to reload your anti-aircraft launchers, you'll need to hit Wal-Mart.

Kim Dong,  I have adopted a Canada first policy for spending.  This supports my fellow socialists and keeps money from the filthy hands of those capitalist pig, Americans.

I invite you to shop only Canadian online enterprises thus supporting fellow socialists.  Free medical support for you from Canada.

Are you going to be backpacking and carrying your own tent wtih you?

What seasons will you use it?

How many people in the tent?

How many people backpacking?  

 

 

These are good questions.  I would suggest getting something that blends into the environment so as not to alert society of your presence.  I would get a knife, mostly for killing things but also for scratching yourself with.  

Bring a quiet dog that will alert you to something you need to protect it from.  Grow a beard, although you may be ahead of the game there.  

Learn to make a fire by rubbing barnacles and ice together.  

Cave art, do it.  

Bring a typewriter, and develop a process to make paper.  Paper for your typewriter, but also for pooping.

Stare into the forest as the forest stares into you.

Marriott, IIRC.

Most of my destinations are too small for a R.I.

Yea but I lived in one for almost a year.  On the day I left the manager came out and gave me (the elected mayor) a hug and said she didn't know what they would do without me.  I commented that $31,000 was tough to give up.  She laughed.

It was important to me though because after a while just being able to cook for myself became more important than just one more restaurant.

For a half a mill you could by a nice place on the North Shore of Lake Superior.. But land or smaller places could be your in the 75 grand to 399 grand. 

I had a Eureka tent for many years..last year I got a Marmot for the Great Adventure.  

Oh and yes...sometimes I wish for a simple rural existence.

I still love Kelty tents.  I did all four RAGBRAIS in the same 90's Kelty, and when a 60mph crosswind snapped the spoke hub on the third ride, I called them, and immediately got a real human being.  For $16 including the shipping, they sent me a redesigned replacement for a fifteen year old tent.  It has weathered storms that turned an afternoon sky purple then blacker than night, lashing rain, high winds, and kept me dry.  It has a chainring tattoo on it, and I can't think of a better brand after that.  And it has character.

And yes, there's plenty of times I wanted to drop out of society --or at least one with more than small talk from some good breakfast waitresses and a traveler here and there.  Seems like the conversations with strangers are some of the best opportunities to be plain old me, and be liked for it.

I had a Eureka dome tent which was nice until it became non-water repelling after years of use :blink: If I ever buy a tent again, I'll buy one w/ a polyethylene floor in lieu of coated nylon. Kelty is suppose to be good as pointed out by @LoneWolf I have a sleeping bag made by Slumberjack w/ qualofil II insulation. Very nice and comfy mummy bag :) IIRC mine is rated to 30°, which is fine because I don't wanna be camping at temps <than that. Also works great if you power is lost in the winter :blink:

Someday, I am going to convert to nuclear or solar power and you will never see me again.  If I ever meet the guy that designed me to run on an 8 ft extension cord, I will kill him.  I have come close a few times but that bastard always stay 10 feet away.  He even uses a pole to touch me.

Would you prefer a Russian or Ukrainian?

I'm guessing he prefers Polish.  After all, the guy uses a Pole to touch him.

Though I'm guessing he'd like a Pole with Roman hands and Russian fingers.
