I Just Bugged Out from It All

 

Solo Off-Road Jeeping

 

My Jeep JK is my work tool, my best friend, and the partner in crime I couldn’t live without. I have spent hundreds of days driving on unmaintained trails and logging roads, conquering nasty obstacles with no possible external help. I have slept just where I was that day, faced recovery situations with calm, or sometimes just wandered around for fun. I’m a loner used to living and working by myself in the wilderness for extraordinary long periods. Living on the trail is a lifestyle choice, and it took me lots of time and plenty of mistakes to find ways to make it sustainable. There are thousands of other online resources that off-road hobbyists and Jeep enthusiasts already know, but most of them are related to advanced driving techniques, group expeditions, complex mechanical repairs, or flashy mods. My goal was to create a resource intended to provide tips, strategies, and creative ideas to a very specific audience: lone Jeepers. Whether you are a solo adventurer, an aspiring survivalist, or a professional planning to drive and work in the bush, the purpose of this website is to help you save money, time, and hassle with to-the-point tips based on my personal experience.

 

Why Solo Jeeping?

 

What’s wrong with me? I hated my office job but somehow endured the agony for 15 years. My reward: I had to deal with burnout. After being advised to take a full-blown vacation, I decided to buy a Jeep and bug out from it all. I just wanted to disappear forever in the remote Canadian wilderness. Just me, my Jeep, and nothing else. Then, I did it. Not only have I never come back, but I’ve also succeeded in making a living out of it.

 

  1. Get a job you didn't know existed

    You won’t get rich. But if you are clever, reliable, trustworthy, and punctual, you can certainly make more money than you need to sustain that lifestyle by just driving your Jeep.

  2. Adventures

    Push yourself, find a new purpose every day, overcome bumpy roads and abandoned trails, meet highlycapable people, enjoy breathless landscapes, explore ridges, streams and lakes, encounter incredible wildlife, and feel the power of awareness.

  3. Get healthy again

    Breathe fresh air, lose weight, improve your cardio, eat better, reduce your alcohol intake, stop smoking/vaping once and for all, quickly detoxify your body, and reconnect with nature. It worked for me.

  4. Independence

    Become more independent, confident, self-reliant, and physically and mentally stronger. Face mechanical failure, or natural disasters with just a loaded Jeep, knowledge, and the advantage of being an outsider to society.
