    -Armchair Survivalist No More-*
    My name is Anthony my friends call me Mojo or surviver man. I have been living the last 9 months on the road, doing what i can to live off the land or with the land. Harvesting wild edible plants, mushrooms & herbs, fishing & hunting small game. I lived in the Shasta-Trinity National forest for 7 months this past year, and planning to go back this spring soon as the snow melts a bit. Last year I made it to Shasta on may 5th with little snow still on the ground.

    I'm looking for people that want to join me in this adventure and come to the forest and live what you have been learning. If you can't, at least come out and spend a week with us, teach us what you know what you have learned. We will be glad to do the same.

    If you are careful you can steal from the growers living in the woods and dont need to prepare. This is now major league growing area. I would be very careful where you go out there.

    I think this kind of survival doesn't rely on preps... A keen mind and a sharp knife is the adventure he's talking about. Thanks for the post - I'd love to embark on something like this.
