Default Living Na'vi Style . . . In the Wild!!!??

We've all been effected on an emotional level by the movie Avatar in some way or another. For example, most of us have had the Pandora effect. But given the chance how many of us would actually take the leap of chance and live like the na'vi... for real, here on earth? I've been thinking about it I've come to the conclusion that I probably would. Im curious as to what everyone else would do.

So would you give up everything you know and live in the wild like the Na'vi?

On Earth... I'm not so sure. If I could on Pandora, as a Na'vi, definitely. But on Earth, I think the knowledge that I'm still here would cause me to miss too much, things I'd never miss if I was on Pandora

I feel like you, ma tsmukan. I would definitely love to live in direct contact with Nature on Earth as well, but I'd find it difficult to completely live in the wild, leaving everything else behind.

Well, I discovered something very interesting indeed yesterday.

There is a company who offer trips to uninhabited islands in the Bristol channel. The islands, called flatholm and steepholm depending on which you go to, have been nature reserves since the 1930s and you can go over there and live the woodsman's life for a few days. Learning the techniques of the wild, starting fires, building shelters etc.

This is something i'm VERY interested in to say the least.

There is an article here on the guy who offers the training for anyone who may be interested. I would say that it would be limited to UK residents though, unless anyone not from the UK wants to visit us.

I don't know that I would know how to give it up and live completely like the Na'vi. I spend a lot of time in nature, as much as I can, camping, hiking, and I love going up North into the bush, and getting 'lost in the woods' so to speak. But I'm not sure I'm ready to give up all the comforts of society. I'd miss my computer, i-pod and blackberry for sure.

I am intrigued by the thought but on earth I dont think I could do it fully like the Na'vi.

That said, I would like having a house in the mountains but I would still need some modern touches. Like some air conditioning possibly a car, and modern clothing. As well I would probably still need things from a store every so often when I am not able to grow things myself and guns or such for hunting.

More so for me it would just be living away from all the hustle bustle, living a care free lifestyle. Being able to just wake up and hike around the mountain would be awesome.

I would love to live like the Na'vi do, here or on Pandora. That being said, I'm almost positive I could not do this alone, so I would love to go with a group I'd also need to figure out how to live in the wild, as I know nothing about that right now. Also, I am severely arachnophobic... so I would have to figure out how to get over that beforehand .

So yeah, I love the idea of living like the Na'vi, but I'm not too sure I could accomplish it in real life. I think I would definitely give it a shot though

On Earth? If ts someplace beautiful, full of everything we need (food, water, Ect.), if I don't hear a word from the U.S. Government or any other world power, and I had tsmukans and tsmuks there (like you guys and girls) there with me I'd do it... But it would be a bit hard together overthe fact I'm on Earth... On Pandora as a Na'vi I'd leave right now no second thoughts

I know it sounds nice, but the reality is pretty tough. How much time have you all spent out in the woods? I've got to say that after a week a shower and a nice bed are really nice. Things that you take for granted in your "normal" life begin to be missed.

I really suggest trying some backpacking to get started. It is a fantastic way to reconnect. It does depend on where you live though. I have it easy. I could go right from my front door if I desired. If you have no experience at all even camping to of a car is a good first step.

Now for the hard part. To get the real experience you need to leave the electronic gizmos at home. Making that break is a critical part of it. If you go where I go cell phones are useless anyway.

Rabbit: Perhaps we should port over all 50+ pages of the wild thread on AF.
Or shift back there to see when people have made a decision lol.
I'm too tired to say everything that I have back on the original thread.
However, I think we should start of with 10 people and expand when we get successful with food ect.
Also NZ looks like a good place to start this.

I am definitely up for this, at least an eco-village type of setting.
I had not thought of this at all until I found the original thread on Avatar-Forums in august, and then I registered at the Revolutionists.

We're talking about transition technology, meaning, starting out with what we feel comfortable with ("not biting off more than you can chew"), and then "going more wild", so to speak. It may still be more of an ecovillage than a real Na'vi-tribe, since that not what we're striving for either. (Hard to get respect from outsiders if it seems like we're trying to emulate a movie.)

Just as long as I can keep with my dream (rescuing birds, especially parrots), this is something I really want to do.

The more I see of modern society, the more I want to leave it.
