I suggest you get John Krakauer's book Into the Wild (just out as a movie) and read it thoroughly. Memorize it. You probably will drop your "live off the land" idea after thinking about the very serious consequences, or at least scale back on your romantic notions of what "living off the land" means. And yes, I mean READ the book, not just see the cut-down, heavily altered movie version

I agree with Bill. If you want to get away from technology and live off the land, you should volunteer to work on an Amish farm.
