Vehicles are easier to change out too...

Can’t haul your house off to the junk yard.

You gotta live in it no matter what kind of nasty shit happens...

Mold in areas never exposed to light, all kinds of areas that never get cleaned, building materials soaking up AND emanating all kinds of toxicity...

Plus you just rot away in a house, and the perception of time is fast, which means whatever life you do have is shorter.

If you lived mobile, you’d have a new “house” every however many years and you’d never really experience stagnation.

We die anyway...

There’s a clear winner here, and it ain’t living in a house.

This is a very good point, wasting away in the same box. Kind of like spending your life in a coffin already experiencing the same thing day in day out.
As opposed to wasting away experiencing everything different a long the way. Its a fuckin dream man.

I’ve found that traveling (roughly) doubles the perception of time...

For example the last two weeks feels like it was at least a month...

I would say it felt like a good 4.25 weeks.

Which is a good thing.

It’s a matrix hack.

You break out of the trap when you learn to manipulate time.

You are seriously inspiring me to make this leap of faith it would make my life so much better.
Experiencing all the different people all the different places something money can't buy.
And I would be good at it too as im already very self sufficient.
Its my dream.

I think we’re meant to be explorers.

Perhaps not by great distances which unnatural modes of travel present (flying etc.) but most certainly terrestrially.

It’s not natural to just stay in the same place all the time.

I just won’t do it.

Not that I’m suggesting car travel isn’t unnatural...

But at least it’s still terrestrial.

Rage against the cage, like the bear who spends its life in the cage, it comes out of the cage and is scared because all it knows is the cage so it goes straight back in.
This is why people are developing all these anxieties n shit because they spend their lives in a cage, then when they leave it the comort is to secure.
For me its the opposite the cage gives me the anxiety when im out of it I feel free and happy.

I’d rather die on the ground than in the air, I’ll tell you that much.

I don't like being in the air. I've skydived and it feels fun but it doesn't feel entirely natural.
I prefer the sea anyway. Or rivers. I would almost sell a kidney to be able to live on a boat. That is even harder than living in a van.

There is a supposed travelers gene, or a few, but specifically drd7, which is a dopamine receptor and essentially they think it came from phonecian type travelers who always had to be aware, but that in modern planted society causes all kinds of problems, as they call them, add, bipolar, adhd, etc etc, because when on the move they would get there dopamine from being alert, aware, survival depending on it,, and in modern planted life that gene expression happens in a way not productive because it just doesn't go away

Cool thread and convo

I wouldn’t live on a boat...

At least I know my car isn’t drifting off anywhere while I sleep.

You park it and you wake up where you fucking parked it.

LMAO.

Beautiful point, makes a lot of sense...

It’s common sense actually.

Of course this would be the answer.

True, I just love water as you could understand lol
I can swim great I just don't have wings I can't fly its not natural.
And that is what I mean't by its harder to live on a boat than a van, you have to have your shit together all the time.
You would never get bored.

That makes sense. But not just from 1 gene, I have probably some Irish traveller genes some scottish nomadic clan genes.
I have just come to the conclusion that perhaps humans were not supposed to stay in the same place all the time.
Meaning they had to travel for climate changes, travel for changes in food supply, travel due to wars and conflict.
Now we don't HAVE to do this, we don't, but what does it do to our minds and spirits?

This road trip was a test, and my conclusion is that it is the right way to live insomuch as it is closer to the natural way we’re meant to live.

There are things like temperature that are a very real issue, likely the most important.

Beyond that...

Getting out and seeing the various landscapes and the variation in people etc. is priceless experience.

Being mobile also helps you listen to your instincts and intuition.

Everything I figured would be true about the road test/mobile living essentially is...

There were some things I didn’t foresee, but otherwise, it’s exactly what I thought it was.

It’s great for minimalism too...

We need hardly anything to live.

Whatever you use every day (basically) when you live mobile is all you need to live.

I basically want to get rid of everything I own (which isn’t much) and live mobile and minimal re: belongings.

This trip helped me gauge what belongings are useful and which ones aren’t.

If I didn't use it in the past 2 weeks, I don’t need it... period.

There was a lot I took that never used... so I won’t be taking those things next time.

What things? The more things we tell about our experiences the more it removes others fear, and fear is the biggest cause of problems in people.
The fact you did this on your own and came back unscathed proves almost anyone can do it.
I just wish you had have documented it to show others how to do it.
