    Sure he did, his mind. He had enough knowledge (which you lack) to know HOW to survive.

    I would love to chime in and express my true thoughts of where you are and where you are going. You have no idea of my experience or technical ability and that is cool, you never will. I learn.... daily in this verse. ;)
    But I will share this thought or maybe two.....

    My step-son was very similar to you when he was your age... he is about 10 years older than you now. He was raised by his father in a bucket of shit... no shit... you are not the only one with a sad childhood/teen age life. Many of us have... some still do in their adult years, yet they persevere and try/work/fight/grow/learn and eventually make something of themselves.

    He worked odd jobs, tried to live off the land, sell drugs and whatever stuff he could do from one day to another. He has multiple kids with multiple women. He has two states after him for child support and they reek havoc upon him.... he has done jail time, suspended license and so on... it is the bed he made. I damn near shot him one night when he lost his better judgement due to alcohol.....while living in my house.....

    He has worked about every odd job under the table to make it through this world.... and more times than not, he was screwed by an unscrupulous employer. Many out there will screw you working under the table, it is not a myth but a reality.

    He is thirty-one now and is finally making a go at a normal life, but still struggles and his ADHD comes out from time to time with stupid decisions for him, his job, and his family.

    We do way more than we should for a man of his age, but he is family..... if it was not for us, he would probably have been incarcerated for a stretch or living in a shelter somewhere, or maybe his car we bought for him..... We do what we need to too keep him above board and on the right side of the law. It cost me a lot of money... monthly, to make sure he is fed, he has car insurance, a phone to call mom, and the ability to take care of what he "needs" to.

    I see you in this same vein as he is... you are young and you can change your road... but I fear you have little positive influence in your life. If we as Monkey's can give you a positive push, then we have succeeded in our mandate to share knowledge and help you learn. If we fail and you do not heed our advice, your choice is just that, your choice.

    We here, are to learn and be better prepared for hard times..shtf... whatever you may call it. Many of us have extensive experience in several area's. If you do not want our information, lessons learned, or input on your quest to die in the woods, so be it. No loss for me... I have enough on my plate.

    @Yard Dart bless your heart for doing what you do to help your step-son and his family. He is very blessed to have you. You're a good man and a good role model, lets hope he absorbs all the knowledge you share with him.

    As for you @theojysofliving-
    Wrong! Stop putting so much energy into getting back at everyone. Instead use that energy and drive to focus and achieve your goal.

    Only if he takes what he needs from other people who have earned it, like that "hermit" discussed here a short while ago. He will live by theft and bresk-in, if he lives at all.
    No, I will not take your money, it would have soured, and I would receive no joy from it.

    That verges (actually is advocating illegal actions) on a violation of CoC item 4. Consider this your last warning, anything more gets you banned.
