You can get away from those things now Bron, right where you are.


Funny thing is getting a smart TV helped me get away from "the suck" at little.


Instead of watching the "EVERYTHING IS BAD" network news in the evenings, I play music through Pandora (instrumental covers, and the like) and just enjoy dinner with my wife and son.

I understand what you are saying tho.

I was there. Quit my job of 10 years, moved out of Charlotte and haven't looked back. I couldn't take it anymore. I felt like a hypocrite. Now I'm in the middle of nowhere.

Find the spot you want to build your small house, then acquire it. Build the house and start using it for weekends away & week long vacations. When you feel the time is right, after all your severance from society is done & you have what you need to survive, then sell your current place of residence & make your weekend spot your new permanent...

Back in '95 I worked on a tugboat, met a guy who sold his house and moved into his sailboat. Dude had a PO box & his 2 boys lived on the boat with him. He owned the boat, worked it out so he could dock & get power from a waterfront business in exchange for keeping an eye on the place at night, he loved it. Just sayin....

You guys go to the boonies and eat sticks and live in tents, leaving more stuff for me.


Win-win.

every day dude... i'm 30 now... started happening to me a few years ago... it's just getting worse... i'm trying to figure out how to make it work.



Seconded!

Working a plan to get the hell out of this "career" and get into a much more fulfilling mode. My kid is grown and on her own so the wife and I really dont need a big house, 3 cars, 3 TVs, satellite, internet, cell phones, and all of the other poo that is modern life.

I can grow a lot of the food we need on our 1 acre lot and the house is paid for so a couple decent part time gigs should be enough to take care of the necessities.

I'm 26 and I got the same feeling. You know what helps? Just going away somewhere for a week or 2, away from everything.

Was just thinking that....I know a lot of people are going into this mode right now and I get it and good for them but not me. I still need a freaking jetski, my Lexus sports car, hair gel, and high definition LED TVs.

Sure none of this will help me when the zombie apocolypse starts but as far as I am concerned, I hope to be one of the first to go when that day comes.

I do respect the people that go off and live the simple life in the middle of nowhere and I believe that they are happier for it. I'm just not wired that way.

On a sidenote, I have entertained the thought of living on a boat and fully intend to do so one day so maybe I am not that bad. When I do it though, will be docked at a place like The Peninsula Country Club on Lake Norman so I won't exactly be roughing it.
