ff into the wilds

earth week got me thinking, it's completely possible to live without all this computer bull poo poo. i've heard the internet makes you stupid. I used to be really into hiking and camping but since becoming an adult I've slipped into some destructive patterns and forgotten my roots. I want to start making trips into the wilderness and really getting away from it all

all of it

i would do this but my revolting nerd body is pathetically frail and would crumple into dust outside of a cushioned chair in a climate controlled building

probably (definitely) by exploiting their labor to hell and back

one route i take to work i drive past a guy who must run a travelling carnival. whole yard full of rides, concession stands, and random trucks and RVs. mostly empty in the warmer weather, full during the winter.

i wish we had an actual fall this year instead of going from 85 degrees directly to 40 degrees in the daytime so I could have taken a week off to get in some quality hammock time with my kindle, leaving only as determined by the progress of the beer in/beer out cycle and my perceived risk of getting west nile virus based on mosquito density

Even then, it's not like you can really count on that lasting. The idea of long-term planning has been taken out back and shot by boomers. Not that it was much more than a fantasy for the privileged, anyway. Hooray.

Otherwise, I'd be really tempted to do the hairy mountain man thing, but I'd be worried about stranding myself in a situation that would be hard to get out of if (when?) things get Really Bad.

i'd do the hairy mountain man thing but i am a Tremendous Pussy who also doesnt know poo poo about gently caress

This is a great picture. I am starting to understand the allure of bird watching. Between 9:30 and 10:30 my backyard becomes a disney princess movie but with grackels and rabbits.

birds are great, pimp your backyard with birdfeeders. suet in the colder months, hummingbird feeder comes out next month for us.

we went in September and it was $220/day for the visa and $180 a day for literally everything else.

and standard undeveloped country travel tips apply.

get vaccinated with whatever the cdc and who say you should to travel there

the locals are mostly vegetarian and you will mostly eat turnips and turnip greens. i think 95% of the food we ate involved steamed or boiled turnip greens. they do have chicken for the tourists at some places but itís the most gristly bone filled chicken I have ever eaten, like floor sweepings from a chicken slaughterhouse in india.

the whole country has 800,000 people, the capital has 115,000 people. the largest contributor to their GDP is the electricity from a hydroelectric dam that they sell to india. india also built the dam. itís really an agrarian subsistence farming economy. the GDP is roughly $3,000 USD per capita. tourism is the second largest contributor to their GDP.

all in, youíll pay the about 90% amount you would pay on a trip to Paris with a 3-star hotel and modest daily food budget, but you are going to one of the poorest countries in the world so literally nowhere in the US is comparable in terms of remoteness or industrial development so be prepared to go with the flow and not contact anyone for most of the trip.

i was able to buy a local sim card in the city but it was in my tour guideís name (you could not buy one as a foreigner when i was there) and some tour guides donít want to have a bunch of sims in their name, so i didnít ask but he offered so i got one, hopefully he made some good money marking it up to sell to me 🤷🏼‍♂️

that said, the country is basically untouched Himalayan mountains with some tiered subsistence farms, and rivers full of clear snowmelt. you feel like you are traveling back in time a thousand years. itís completely worth it.

i have the names of the tour company we used pm me if you want it, i never felt anything other than safe in the time we were there, the govt required local guide and driver really nice and very knowledgeable, itís one of my top 2 amazing trips along with the antarctic peninsula and i have been at least once to 6 of the 7 continents

some day I will finally catch em all and go to the marsupial island, but not this year.
