I don`t trust the government.
I don`t carry a cell phone. (it`s a tracking device)
I bought 28 acres 18 miles from town,
put up a cabin and going off the grid.
I prefer to be by myself and cut off from the outside world.
I don`t like the direction this country is going.
Some of my family think I`m nuts.
My coworkers thing I`m odd, I go to work, do my job and keep to myself.
My online world is shrinking, I don`t use facebook anymore or any of the social crap.
I rarely post here anymore.
What do you guys think?.....Is what I`m doing healthy?

I don't think you are going crazy, I think you are ageing. The older I get the more I feel the same way.

Not as bad as all that, but we did move out in the country a few years ago (I have my own range now, yay!), and it's nice not to have anybody around. I also only carry a flip phone, and have a tendency to forget it and leave it in the truck or on the night stand a lot.

I'm not antisocial, but the need to have a lot of interaction with other people seems to be dwindling.

Yup. You're a raving lunatic!

Need a neighbor that thinks the same?

Social media is a brain bleeder! Trashes everyone's mind!
   Ruining our youth. Its stupid!
No one reads the paper anymore. No one writes letters
now. Kids and illegal aliens run the country now and
congressman all nod their bobble heads and pass stupid
laws. History's being rewritten to suit the kiss-ass
agenda of the new wave of someone's idea of how they want
it to read...

Don't blame ya one bit! This country's turned into a big
giant Labrador retriever turd! Thanks to the liberals and
their ignorant moron minion followers.

redneck - wanting to withdraw from society isn't really all that crazy. Every so often, there is a big "back to land" movement; no one accuses them of all being nuts, why should we think different of you? Sure, you have your own motivations, but as long as you're not going to fall apart or advocating anything against anyone, I can't see as it's anyone's business.

Well thanks guys, At least I`m not going crazy. The cabin has been a dream of mine since I was kid. Was finally able to make it happen. The hardest part was finding some land that had every thing I wanted..ie remote, good access, do whatever I want.
First thing I did was set up my own shooting range. Nice not having to deal with other shooters. I can shoot out to 275 yards.
Anyway I`m signing out..

Most cell phones have what is called
"airplane mode" which shuts off all
transmissions normally generated by the
phone so that it can't mess with avionics
for safety reasons when you are flying on
a commercial airliner for safety reasons.

I use that option a whole lot, for privacy
reasons, and the GPS is almost always
turned off even when I'm actually using
the phone as a phone. Now when in
airplane mode you can't call out or
receive calls, but if you ain't expecting
a call that you need to take and you don't
need to make a call then why the heck have
the darn thing transmitting and
communicating with the towers, there is
this thing called voicemail and you can
just leave me a message and I'll get back
to you when I check to see if I have any
messages at a time and place of MY
choosing.

Now there are forces at work trying to get
the FAA to change their rules about this
which would end up resulting in this
currently pretty much mandatory safety
feature being removed from the phones or
being replaced by a fake version that
still let's them use the phone to track
you because it doesn't actually shut off
all transmissions all the way. But so far
the safety issues with avionics
interference is still real and the rule
and feature is still real and really shuts
off all transmissions from the phone. So
if you have to have a cell phone for your
job or such but still want some privacy
and peace of mind then use that airplane
mode feature man!!!

Don't those contraptions come with an OFF Switch too?
just sayin'

Back on track...
Being a self-imposed recluse myself, I seldom leave my
place in the woods. Have little contact with anyone.
Enjoy my own ranges I've setup. And could care less if I
speak to anyone for weeks at a time. After decades as a
peace officer I learned a valuable lesson about people in
general; they don't give a $h*t about you, but sure are
selfish, obnoxious, rude, self-centered parasites who's
entire world revolves around them.

Paul, enjoy your seclusion. Its priceless.

Well Paul, you might be going crazy, but it seems like a pretty good kind of crazy.

If you ever want to drop us a line, you know where we are.

Enjoy your seclusion!

My seclusion is going good. My wife comes out on weekends. My son shows up a couple times a week and helps me out and we get some shooting in. Family came out one evening and we cooked some burgers and had a good feed. My Mother says we should do it every week, I don`t think so! The great thing about it is everybody goes home.
