In a month or so a friend and I are going to pack up my car with only our most precious possessions and go out into the world with a sparse itinerary and no plans for a return date. We both feel stuck inside our own heads and dissatisfied with life. Maybe the answer is somewhere out there on the road. Anybody else ever want to do this? Anybody do it?

Sounds refreshing and fun :) Those things can give you needed perspective and should throw many unexpected experiences your way. Wake up the senses and the mind.

Wish I had a car. I'd do the same. I've left most everything behind about every two years and moved somewhere else. Not running from anything (which people will always bring up lol) - just a wanderer of sorts, blazing my own path.

You have no idea how much I'd like to do such a thing. =/ Possibly alone or with a very very close friend. My daily life feels so ordinary and barren, traveling and just being in a different and unusual environment, could add some magic and meaning in life.

Thanks for all the responses. It seems like everyone I talk to says that they wish they could just head out into the unknown as well. I wonder why so few people actually do it.

I fantasize constantly about doing this, but I haven't taken action yet. Having a car and a little more cash would probably help, but I've considered going by foot/train. Living alone like this for an extended period of time is also very appealing and it is becoming a necessity. When I think of a place I'd spend some of my time, that would be Washington State (Northwest) Western Canada and Oregon.

Just a thought, but it would be hilarious if, in our attempt to self-isolate, we all end up in the same random forest in the northwestern portion of North America. Awkward . . .

I would spend my whole life doing this if I thought it were feasible. I just don't know how I'd survive. I don't want to worry about where I'll get my next meal.
I've thought about that. I think I would rather worry about where my next meal is coming from than worry about losing my mind. Maybe some real problems and crisis are just what I need to put all of my neurotic problems and crisis in perspective. Of course, reality may reveal this thought to be purely romantic. We shall see.
