Leaving Monday Need Help

No.1670510 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I need help /out/. I'm leaving my life behind and going /out/ for at least a year or so. It's either this or death. Literally, this weekend, I need to make preparations. Monday morning I need to leave. I plan to take my dog, my phone, my computer, a laptop, a notepad, and my lucky pen, and several other items for safety. I have a vehicle that while not the best can operate on moderate offroad terrain. I need to get across the country. I'm on the edge of the East Coast. I'm thinking of Washington State or maybe even British Columbia (I can cross the border legally, but would rather not). I need to find somewhere that I can get off the grid and just live out life with my dog for a bit until things improve. I'd rather not make the trip in one go. I'd like to stop off at national parks and forests and ideal /out/ places along the way so that I can practice outdoors shit like starting fires, where to camp, how to camp, etc before I commit to seriously getting way the fuck out there.

I have the following things sorted already:
>A decently serviced vehicle, albeit fairly old
>A steady income, albeit low
>Clothes to get me through winter

That's about it. I need to know locations to go, how to sustain myself on a low income by supplementing it with hunting/fishing. Things like that. I have never gone fishing or hunting, but have extensive experience with weapons. I don't want to end up like that guy you all meme out about from Into The Wild, but I do need to get off the grid for a little bit but I don't want to be an underprepared idiot like him.

Please dump anything from hunting advice to general advice about how to make my life easier on the road. I need to learn how to fish fucking immediately too. Also, how the fuck do I take weapons across state lines legally? Like, what happens if I enter a state where certain weapons are banned, but I'm just passing through? Do I need to ship it over the state and pick it up in a legal state? I need the weapons to hunt with.
