    Hey, I respect your way of thinking, you remind me of one of my friends with you way of thinking. Except she’s 19, has always been ridiculously sheltered and want nothing more to live a life like the one you’re describing. She’s independent and smart but she’s from a rich family. And even though she’s not materialistic and a REALLY light packer with travel, I don’t think she’ll cope without the luxuries she’s always had. How do I discourage her from being like you? No offence. I just don’t think she’s thinking about this realistically and that it’s not safe for a pretty 19 year old girl to just travel by herself.

    And what kind of work do you do? Could a girl do it? And what if you want to settle down and have kids later on in life. She hates kids now, but she’ll change her mind once she sees her friends have them. What are the disadvantages to your life?

      Hi Laura,

      I don’t think many people need encouragement to be different to me… I live an alternate style life which to me is exactly what I want, though I know others would hate. If your friend has been sheltered, I am guessing by her family then I guess they have their reasons for doing so. If she is smart, rich and independent I don’t see why she can’t crawl out from the shelter and give something else a go. I am sure if things don’t work out she can always go back to the life she currently lives. In regards to luxuries and materialistic items, you would be surprised what you can go with out once you give it a go. I not only purchase sports gear or equipment to take traveling, travel gear or gadgets to make time management easier as well as record my story. I at times can live a very simple life in the mountains somewhere and a lot of that time is what I enjoy most. I by no means encourage a 19 year old to do any thing unsafe, there is smart ways to go about things. I like doing dangerous things safely with calculated risks. There is no need to jump in the deep end.

      For work I do rope access mechanical maintenance. There is more boys in the industry but yes there is plenty of girls! I don’t see you friend settling down with kids if she lives a sheltered life. I personally do not like being around children very much. If I was to get to a point where I “settle down” I would be the kind of person that would want to raise foster kids as I believe I could assist their lives more positively.

      There is a few disadvantages to my life, but to me the only disadvantage that annoys me is time spent with people I love. I spend a lot of time alone and I miss a few select friends a lot. But I believe the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.

      Safe travels,
