makes sense to me too but we are in an extreme minority.

can you do it without being evicted? I suppose you can blend among nature and move her by 'the way' for a bit, but not forever- any recommended areas?

so if in the forest, the first rule is have some fun, do not suffer unnecessarily. why. well because you are practicing. you are on the royal path. that is why. you are engaging reality. you are not there to be a survivor hero. leave that for the bud jocks. you know the ones.
other wise, my bet is that a nice small village, is going to offer better conditions for the serious practice.
why, well food is local. folks are there to chill with, of course that is necessary. (a friendly bar with warm atmosphere is a heck of an environment ... you just have to make sure the music is condusive to the way, which means, commercial stuff is out ... I have placed music as a serious danger to cultivating the sustained practice which is what the whole awareness is about ... all sound is a big factor. some stuff sticks to a person hours after they have heard. genuine bird song, on the other hand, is what makes the practice sweet and fast. prove it for yourself.
even the foancient daoists only went onto mountains knowing there were other great folks out there. no way were they doing any sort of lonesome survivor deal, not a chance. they placed happiness at the top of the list.... which coincidentally is why and how they became such accomplished sages. (I will find proof of this) and the comfy warm thatched hut. the construction details have to be worked out, but hey, no worries that is rule one, again.)

Trust this: you'll feel more alone in society than in the middle of the Namibian desert if you have the wrong mind attitude.
Let me give you an insightful quote by venerable Ch'an master Shen-yen:
"When I was in solitary retreat, I knew that I was together with all sentient beings in innumerable worlds. Even though I seemed to be alone in a small, enclosed room, actually I was in company with many ants who found their way inside, and there were many insects around the hut who created all kinds of sounds in the evening. When I opened the Sutras, people thousands of years in the past were talking to me. How could I feel lonely? Some people think I must feel lonely being a monk without any wife or children. Not at all. I have the 5 precepts and the 10 Virtuous Deeds as my wife, and my children are all the people who I have developed a karmic affinity with and who call me Shih-fu. It is only those pitiable people who enclose themselves and cannot establish a relationship with the outside world who feel lonely. If you keep yourself enclosed, even if you live among thousands of people you will still feel very lonely. However, if you keep yourself open, then even if you are living alone, you will still have a very full life. So open your mind and treat everyone as your intimate, virtuous friend."

........... It should be further noted that the American people are among the most censored in the World as it pertains to their propaganda media allowing them to know the truth and are ranked as 36th on the Press Freedom Index in a spot shared by Bosnia and Herzegovina.
..... the American Military contingent that arrived in Kazakhstan for their meeting with Defense Minister Serdyukov did so aboard the United States most secretive nuclear powered terrestrial and outer space ‘Flying Triangle’ craft called the TR-3B which was reportedly ‘fired upon’ ...
....... virtually unnoticed by the American people, and totally ignored by their propaganda media, Michelle Obama stood confidentially beside her husband on this historic night garbed in the ancient African Bantu ceremonial ‘Royal Robe’ meant to signify that that which they most feared would not hold power over them ...... The history of the ancient Bantu peoples of Africa has been nearly entirely erased from Western history other than the mention of their mass migration in 1,000BC (still considered one of the largest in human history) forced upon them by the new ‘gods’ of the Middle East seeking domination over our human race and fearing our peoples ever becoming united against them.
..... human races most ancient ‘story’, as told by the Bantu peoples through their myths and religious practices, our Earth and its peoples lived in total harmony before the descent to our planet by the ancient ‘gods’ in the African Nation of Zimbabwe where the oldest structures ever built by human beings still survive to this day.
............ After the reengineering of our human race to a ‘form’ better suited to their uses, as the Bantu peoples refused to bow before them, these ancient ‘gods’ abandoned the Continent of the Bantu (Africa) and established in present day Iraq their ‘main base’ which today goes by the name of Garden of Eden and from which their religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism all share their birth...................... But, and unlike the beliefs of the Bantu peoples which stressed no difference between our Earth and its peoples, these ‘new’ religions were designed to keep our human race in perpetual warfare with each other ...

what has caught our attention today, to put it mildly, is a combined Russian Interior Ministry-FSB report circulating in the Kremlin today that states that our World’s Navies are about engage in ‘unprecedented’ hostilities with the ‘giant founders’ of the ancient Biblical Garden of Eden to prevent our Planet from being re-colonized by an alien race most popularly known as the Annunaki (or "Nephilim") who ancient Babylonian texts state are the ‘Watchers’ over our Earth.
What makes this report even more disturbing is that as these very words are being written, Naval Forces from all around the Globe are now converging upon The Gulf of Aden, the area historically described as is “the freshwater river that left Eden and split into four heads of branches, based upon archaic notions of a great river encircling the world” and which is the exact location given by these ancient Babylonian texts for the location of the ‘main undersea base’ of these Watchers.
Global Naval Forces currently steaming towards, or already in, The Gulf of Aden include ‘friends and foes’ alike The United States, Iran, China, Russia, Germany, Switzerland, European Union and India under what these reports state is the ‘cover story’ of protecting the shipping lanes of that region from the US backed pirates operating out of Somalia.
.... a strange American Military obsession with a “Large Ruby Stone-Like Object” found at the excavation of a large Mexican monolith, and linked to the prophecies of an American named Edgar Cayce, and who is known as the Great American Prophet, that two more of these “Large Ruby Stone-Like Objects” are reported by Russian Intelligence reports to have been uncovered in the Americas, and of those sites where found we can read:
......... As reported by Russia’s Itar-Tass News Service in their article titled "Amazon ‘Stonehenge’ found in Brazil” and which says, "Brazilian scientists have made a discovery, which may totally change the opinion that the Amazon area has never been populated by highly developed civilizations, the Globo newspaper said on Sunday. Amapa archaeologists have found an assembly of stones, nicknamed the Amazon Stonehenge after the famed stone circle in Britain.
......Not being reported to the American people however are the true facts showing that the Al-Qa’ida Terrorist Organization that Osama bin Laden leads was set up by the Nazi Fascists in the 1920’s, used by British, French and American Intelligence Organizations after World War II, then reactivated by the CIA under the present American Presidents father, George Bush, who at that time was the Leader of the CIA and received Saudi Arabia funding for this terrorist project........
........foremost authority on the undersea bases of the Watchers was the former World War II British Naval Intelligence officer Ivan Terence Sanderson, and whose research book on this subject “Invisible Residents: The Reality of Underwater UFOs”, is still considered by Russian Intelligence Experts to be the most definitive book on this phenomena. Even more interesting to note are the reports from France stating that Ivan Sanderson’s book “Uninvited Visitors: A Biologist Looks At UFOs”..................
........other than to warn that in our Earth’s most ancient times the knowledge of these Watchers was beyond dispute, and if our most ancient myths are anything to go by, then we are, indeed, entering a time when, once again, the battles between our human race and the ‘gods’ will break forth into the open for all to see. .....
.. Important also to note about the Iranian downing of one of these Nazi “saucer crafts” is that their destination was Afghanistan, which besides the two poles of our Planet has the only other “entrance” to the “Inner Earth”
.... 1855 new Emperor Nicholas I, Alexander II became alarmed over the West’s plan to subjugate the entire World through the insidious destruction and enslavement of humanity for the sole benefit of a ruling elite class of people that was gaining ascendancy in the Royal Houses of Europe after the 1848 publication the German philosopher Karl Marx’s “Manifesto of the Communist Party” and which stated that the “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.” ........
.... Raising Alexander II’s fears even more were the European Royal Houses “power moves” to force into Western thought and science, and hence its peoples, the catastrophic theories of the English naturalist Charles Darwin who was propounding the concept of “natural selection” and culminated in the publishing of his theories in his 1859 book “On the Origin of .......
....... Now what had led to the fears of Alexander II was the West’s attempting to overturn what is the real state of our existence, which is rooted in geometry and is (loosely) called the “Social Cycle Theory”, and that the great Russian scientist Nikolay Yakovlevich Danilevsky (opposed to Darwin and Marx by advocating that our World’s history is circular not linier) warned the Czar that a “clash of civilizations” between Russia and the West inevitable. ....
...Even more importantly, in Alexander II’s knowing that Russia’s and the United States successfully blocking of the European Royal Houses by their wins in the Russian-Ottoman and American Civil wars, the Czar knew the fight was not over and would stretch into the 20th and 21st Centuries
....So, in order to strengthen both Russia and the United States, he ordered the Russian territories of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands to be sold to the Americans in 1867, and following the example of Abraham Lincoln ordered the abolition of serfdom in all of the Russia’s believing by these actions both Nations would better prepared for the “clash of civilizations” that was surely to come...
