EPISODE 7: THE MODERN HUNTER GATHERER: Don't Let The Fire Go Out
Have you ever dreamed of leaving it all behind -- your job, your cell phone, your comfy life -- to walk into the wilderness and live off the land? Or have you ever wondered if you'd truly have the skills to make it out alive when an adventure goes south? If so, you are not alone. More and more people are learning how to start fires with sticks, build shelters from leaves, and forage for wild foods. The practice has many names, but some call it the Rewilding Movement, and it's spreading with everyone from paleos to preppers to techbros. For some it's a weekend escape; for others it's the beginning of a journey to build a life rooted in the dirt instead of concrete. But the path is fraught: hunger, cold, and isolation challenge even the most skilled modern hunter gatherers. The first rule? Don't let the fire go out.
