Could you live off the grid and pay only in cash if you needed to?

I'm not even sure if it's possible in 2020, but could you find a cheap place to stay, pay in cash and live like that for a few years if society started hunting people who posted "incel propaganda" online?

All I can think of is getting a truck and living in the wilderness, or maybe some RV park that has showers.

This is in america of course. Might be harder elsewhere.

Off the grid is work and suffering. Like van life, it loses its appeal fast and more costly. Nothing but a pipe dream.

There’s other ways...

You could go hardcore and go to Alaska and live off the land. This guy that was on Joe Rogan a few months ago goes into depth about it:


It's a bit of a pipe dream though cause it's tough and you need years of learning how to do it and not die.

Mine as well, you can even buy stuff online without credit card, just print some sort of receipt, take it to the store and pay there in cash.

I could, that's why I'm moneymaxxing. Once I have enough I'll retire in my early 40s. MGTOWmaxxing.

Of course it's doable, that's actualy my objective. I also fucking despise credit cards.
The only issue woud be paying insurance, phone bills or other fees. All the rest can and should be bought in cash in a real shop.

I think in the near-future we will be living in a cashless society, and the only way to purchase items is by getting the chip implant which the government will require all citizens to have to buy products. If you refuse then you'll have to live off the land. So you better start farmmaxxing soon buddy.

Most lokrly not. Op....in my country there are States with no running water.the local population are either nomads or small social groups that have to grow their own food.and schools don't exist. They're completely neglected by the government. Most homes don't even have roofs....it's a hard life that anyone who lives it wants to escape it but by no means is it impossible.
phone bills
I thought going off the grid meant you leave all electronics behind.not just society/comminity.

@Emba shouod know. imo you def can do so id your willing to use tents or cabin and only buy food with cash. Internet will be bit more difficult to access but likely can still be done, i have been to mounrain village in curryland and even there was good internet there.

They're going to get rid of cash payments soon. They want all transactions to be taxable and they want to get rid of the black market.

Over for escortcels.

If I had to just live off of money I'd find it really hard. I use a lot of apps and websites that need credit cards & such
I guess as a workaround if I had enough money I could just live in a place that is cash only and then find some whore. Use her to do my bidding and purchase all my shit with her cards and then pay her cash.

If it’s on a card with a chip you can track it. In most if not all American cities there’s cameras everywhere anyway. It’d be hard OP

Dude. When i was "homeless" in my tent in the woods, i had micro solar aa battery charger for my flashlight. They are a tiny bit bigger to charge a phone - about the size of a 11" magazine!
phone bill could be prepaid I guess

the rest... I dunno. maybe cash to some old couple renting out a room
"If you can drive there, so can the forest rangers/ cops" believe me, i know. It's better to park elsewhere and bicycle in to your campsite.
@Emba shouod know. imo you def can do so id your willing to use tents or cabin and only buy food with cash. Internet will be bit more difficult to access but likely can still be done, i have been to mounrain village in curryland and even there was good internet there.
If by "mountain village" you mean "resort town" then.... Easy high pay jobs nearby! As long as no one can find/ fuck with, your camp, then you could save lots of money and live well for super cheap!

(Unless there's gov road/ trail cameras :€ as is now the case in most of America. (The woods/ forest is central bank collateral)

I'm a fan of nature and solitude, but I don't think I'd be able to do it. Too addicted to modern copes. This would probably end up like Into the Wild for me.
