Useful Tips

Go to the taiga and live as a hermit


I will try here to describe all the actions of a person who decided to live in the taiga - to go into seclusion. So that autonomous life in the taiga does not turn into death, you need to be well prepared. First you need to decide on a specific region, choose an approximate place. Then see what it is and plan training based on this place. The main tool for obtaining theoretical knowledge about autonomous life in the taiga will be the Internet! What exactly to watch can be determined from the following points.

What trees, bushes prevail there. It can be spruce / fir forest, maybe Siberian cedar, larch, maybe only pine, maybe mixed with hardwood, maybe only deciduous. Taiga is always different. This can be found in the maps, they usually write what is growing in the area.

Availability of water resources. Are there any rivers, lakes, streams in the vicinity? Actually without water you should not go at all and look for a place not far from the water. It would be nice if there is a main river / lake at some distance from the intended place (so that it is not visible from the water) and next to the place is still a stream / spring.

Distance from nearby settlements. Remoteness plays an important role in the issue of secrecy of the settlement - the further the place is located, the more likely you will not have undesirable meetings. But I think it’s not worth going too far into deepening, since campaigns into civilization for anything should not be ruled out. The place should not be interesting for a simple layman (tourist, hunter, fisherman, lumberjack).

The presence of living creatures. Observe safety measures to avoid unwanted guests such as a bear, a pack of hungry wolves, etc. Know which taiga animals live in your area. Learn how to hunt.

So, we can proceed from these points to determine the preparatory actions. We can say that everything is useful for a hermit, but this is not so. There is nothing to bother with your head with unnecessary information, but focus solely on what is useful specifically for autonomous life in the taiga.

First of all, it is a matter of construction. It is worthwhile to be interested in how to build a house, how to do it the most convenient and practical. In taiga it is better to build a log house. The source material will be coniferous trees. From here it is already worth figuring out what tools and materials are needed for this.

Then there is the question of obtaining food - this is hunting, fishing, gathering, growing plants, keeping livestock. Learn the ways specific to this region. Do not bother with the study of growing those plants that, by definition, cannot be grown there. You need to decide on the products that you will take with you for the first time. You should decide which clothes you have to take there and which ones are not worth it. Learn how to make clothes with your own hands, for example, from animal skins, making threads and ropes.

I recommend, after a set of basic theoretical knowledge, to make a complete list of what you have to acquire and begin to slowly purchase, as necessary.

What is needed for physical fitness? The main thing is to walk a lot. Walk everywhere, stop using public transport at all. Come out earlier to be in time. Start small and gradually increase the distance. Measure it with the help of a city map (conveniently via Dublgis). At home, do exercises for the muscles of the legs in a day — squats, lifting “on toes” (for calf training) I recommend doing it in a day. After you have come home, climb into the bathtub and pour your feet under a cold shower, so you remove fatigue from your feet, temper them and wash away the dirt.

You can take a backpack with a load. Hand exercises: pull-ups on the horizontal bar, vertical bars, push-ups from the floor, exercise with dumbbells. This is more than enough to maintain shape and build muscle. I recommend the same every other day so that the muscles have time to relax and recover. You can alternate with squats, you can do everything in one day.

It’s also worth it, on days convenient for you, to go hiking in the forest, even if the forest is different from the place where you gathered. I recommend going on solitary hikes, it tempers the psyche for staying in the forest, and teaches independence and independence. Use hiking is not for frying kebabs, but for the development of specific practical skills. First of all, these are elementary skills of survival in a taiga forest, making a fire, building a temporary dwelling, etc. Yes, and just get used to being in the forest, alone.

The moral side of the issue. In connection with the fashion for healthy eating, eco-settlements, etc., I think your fighting spirit will not be broken during the preparation, it will, on the contrary, be fueled by all kinds of propaganda of a healthy lifestyle. So if you decide initially, then I think you will not change your mind in the future.

The best option would be to go to villages nearby from the place and consult with locals about life in the taiga, it is better for hunters.

Many of us are attracted by the romance of taiga huts, winter huts. A seductive view of a snow-covered house peeking out of the taiga wilderness, with mighty cedars and mountain ranges in the background. The dim light of a candle visible from a small but neat hut window - magically affects all lovers of taiga aesthetics, whether it be any hunters, fishermen, tourists or huntsmen - we all, like predatory fish, peck at these wonderful, warm and cozy images simple and happy life in a taiga hut. Though not for long, just a couple of days, but we really want to live in such a hut.

Let's talk about arranging such a hut that it is. How to get into it and how to build, how to behave in it and what you can do there. I myself am from the number of people who peck at these images, and therefore have been interested in taiga life for more than a year. He lived in such huts for three weeks, which you can see in my video about life in the winter hut.

You can meet a hut on the banks of rivers, lakes, streams, since the presence of water for a person is very important. It can be tourist places or altogether unsuitable. Marshes and mountains, very remote and nearby places. Many huts are marked on many maps, but not all of them exist to this day, and far from all huts are indicated on the maps. Probably most of the huts are not indicated.

All huts in the taiga are built with any permission from the owners of the land on which the construction will be carried out. Those. it is either a hunting farm or a private hunting estate, etc. Otherwise, such a hut can be burned and the work of builders will be lost. They can burn it like that, but in the first case the probability is higher. Therefore, each hut has its own owner, who monitors the safety of the hut, maintains it in good condition, prepares firewood, etc. In principle, anyone can build a winter house in the taiga, but for this it is necessary to negotiate with the foresters, write out a forest from them for construction, or bring their own building materials. Otherwise, the winter hut can burn.

If you stumbled upon such a hut in the forest, it is unlikely that a lock will hang on its door - the door will always be open, which means that you can spend the night in it and use it for your own purposes.

There are unwritten rules for using such huts:

  • Any traveler can spend the night in a hut,
  • The hut door doesn’t close
  • Spent the night in a hut - tidy up and leave a supply of firewood for another traveler so that each next one can always light a fire in the furnace and warm up. There were times when people strayed through the taiga for a long time, and then stumbled upon such winter houses, and saved their lives,
  • If possible, leave something edible that does not deteriorate soon, such as salt, matches, cereals, a candle, etc. So that another traveler can quickly make a fire and save his life,
  • Having your supplies, try not to touch the strangers, for example, having the opportunity to collect firewood, try not to burn those that are already in the hut.

The meaning of the existence of such a hut in a dense forest is the ability of any traveler to spend the night in comfortable conditions, warm himself, prepare food, and sleep. Huts are built, as a rule, for themselves, by various taiga inhabitants, for example, hunters.

Everything in the decoration of the hut adapts to itself, but there are some universal criteria, for example, the diameter of the beam in the log house should be large, from 25-30 cm. The winter house should be for 3-5 people, with a stove. It’s not that their implementation is mandatory, it’s just statistics rather than rules.

Each owner of the winterhouse can build it for any size and requirements that he himself places on his hut.


There are two types of stoves used in the winteries. This is an iron stove and a brick. All these stoves have their pros and cons. An iron stove is good when a traveler needs to warm up quickly. Having thrown an armful of firewood into it, in a few minutes it begins to give off heat and warm the cold traveler.

However, how quickly it warms up, it also cools quickly, therefore, such stoves need to be heated with constant firewood, or using raw firewood, on top of hot coals. However, in severe frosts, the heat that smoldering raw firewood will give is not enough and the room will still be cool. But it’s also not worth it to overdo it by putting firewood on, you can easily heat the house to a hot state in which you simply can’t sleep and you have to ventilate, while the firewood will not be spent sparingly.

If your partner drowns to + 42 ° - change your partner!

Well-kept hut with a solid brick stove

A brick oven is heated for a long time, but also gives off heat for a long time. It's all about the thermal conductivity of the brick, which is an order of magnitude less than the thermal conductivity of steel. It is difficult to melt, but it is also difficult to cool. It is also not worth it to abuse it with a fire of such a furnace. In small frosts and thaws, drowning it is not at all necessary. Having prepared dinner on it in the evening, after burning wood - close the shutter and go to bed, the stove will warm you all night. In severe frosts, you may need to melt harder.

Some stoves can be folded incorrectly, and when you try to smoke it, smoke can go out into the room. Such stoves smoke when they are cold, but if they are warmed up, the smoke begins to go into the chimney, the draft becomes good. Such stoves can be inconvenient if you need to quickly heat a room. The first minutes (or even hours) you have to heat with the door open, while the room will be cold. After warming up, the dog drowns in the same way and gives off its heat for a long time.

It is better to prepare firewood for the stove yourself, but if there is no such possibility, then you can use those that are available in the hut itself. Also near the hut in the forest there may be wood caches, which the hut owners harvest in the warm season. Already sawn logs are stacked between the trees (you just need to chop) or maybe even already chopped ones. Also, firewood can be laid by poles. You can use these firewood.


Of course, culturally! Do not forget that you are visiting, not at home. Take out the trash. Plastic - burn, cans - also burn, so that tin can easily decompose. Remove from the table and, if possible, sweep the floor behind you. If you have prepared a large amount of firewood - do not burn them on purpose, such as: "That others will burn my firewood, I did not work for them!" - leave your firewood for future travelers.

Try not to eat on the sidewalk, as food crumbs that have fallen from your meal can attract mice, which will already be full in your hut. It’s a rather unpleasant situation when you sleep, and mice crawl over you! Do not eat on the run!

Many huts are built poorly, there are many slots and exits for warm air. If you are going to be in such a winter house for a long time, then take care of arranging and finalizing the hut. Find all the gaps on the outside of the hut; this is easy to do with the steam coming from the gaps. A snow outgrowth will form on top of the cracks. Plug the gap with tow, moss, cotton, old rags, etc. Remove the steam engines to track their availability on the next day. If the steam has formed again - shut up better.

Throw snow piles on the first crowns of the hut, organize a blockage. Usually enough up to 2-3 crowns, in severe frosts they make up to the windows. This will reduce your heat loss at the bottom.

Filling up

Cultural rest


Of the dangers in the hut, the following can be distinguished: carbon monoxide poisoning, mice, bugs, other insects, wild animals, fire. Elementary caution usually saves from fire. Bedbugs die in the winter and most likely they will not be there, I can not say about summer time, but rumors are circulating. Carbon monoxide poisoning can be in any living room with stove heating, it is rare and happens most often with very drunk people. But about the mice I will say separately.

There are a lot of mice in the forest, and it is not surprising that they will come running to the warm to your hut. Such an abundance of food and warmth - what could be better for mice? But apparently harmless rodents carry the risk of infecting you with various infections that they carry. Many infections are terrible and deadly. Where the mouse passed - everywhere there are a lot of its feces. Mice run on the floor, under the floor, on the gates and, of course, on the table. On your uncleaned plates and spoons thrown on the table. According to your packages with cereals and other goodies. Having lived in the winter for some time, a person takes measures to fight mice.

Mousetraps can be ordinary plastic bottles with a volume of at least 1.5 liters. The bottle is placed against the wall, while its neck is tilted to the wall. A curious mouse will surely crawl into it, but it will not be able to get out. However, he personally observed more than once the process of how a mouse climbs out of a bottle by jumping out. But having accustomed to the mass catch of rodents, you can choose the optimal packaging and tilt angle.

Even if there are a large number of dead mice in the bottle, other mice will still climb there and doom themselves to certain death.

According to the stories of the owners of the winter houses, it was sometimes possible to exterminate the mice to such an extent that then they did not observe them for a long time in the district. Those. exterminated the entire population in the district. This method is used by many owners of winter houses, this is not my notion, so contact other sites for humanity.

Mousetrap from a 2 liter bottle, very catchy

Less catchy mousetrap, mice jump out

Caught Mice

Everything edible must be suspended from a container to the ceiling. If you simply hang food packages on the wall, then the mice will climb into them. Optionally, there can only be a rope in the middle of the hut and a hook on which you hang packages or some other container. Or just bent cloves, any hooks in the ceiling, but not on the beams and walls! Посуда необходимо переварачивать, убирать, тарелками прикрывать кружки т. д.

Припасы подвешенны на балку - не правильно, мыши заберуться туда

По жёрдочке мыши умеют ползать, пакет обречён.

Припасы подвешенны правильно, к потолку

1)посуда не перевёрнута, мыши будут ползать,2)посуда лежит правильно, перевёрнута, мыши не залезут.

Опасность нападения диких зверей тоже существует. Это может быть медведь, причём как шатун зимой, так и обычный бродяга летом. Стая волков, рысь, лиса и т.д. As a rule, in most cases, animals are only interested in your food, whose smells are distributed throughout the forest. If you store perishable foods in senks or in the yard, the fox, for example, or some other chupacabra can smell. An attack on you is very unlikely. Only a connecting rod. The rest of the beast will not attack.

Wolves attack only if there’s nothing to eat at all and they are fooling with hunger. But if your hut is full of mice - then do not worry about any wolves. Large predators most likely will not approach you, but a fox can, because it has a tendency to approach residential buildings and steal food from people. Well, it’s not in vain because she was nicknamed her cheat! Hang food high from the ground so that the fox does not get off the floor.


The taiga winter hut plays an important role in the life of every hunter fisherman. Since the main hunt takes place in winter, the need for such hibernation is very great. A hunter fishery, who has at his disposal a certain part of the forest, sets up a network of such winter huts.

The network consists of a base hut in which the hunter lives, and traveling huts in which the hunter only sleeps on the way along his lands. Since its route is very large, and in order to go around all the lands it takes days, maybe weeks, then for every night the hunter must build a winter hut in the taiga, the distance from them should be equal to the daytime winter crossing.

But, besides hunter-fishermen, the taiga wintering is vital for the taiga hermit, who decided to leave all the benefits of civilization and leave to live in the forest, to live in the taiga. Also, in such forest huts live the indigenous peoples of the north, for example the Mansi people. They know how to build them very quickly, and as a rule, they put up a hut only in the winter, and in the summer they live in the plague. But some families have already lost the habit of their traditional homes - the plague and live permanently in huts.


If for a good, solid hut, the forest should be harvested earlier (recommended in December), then for a simple hunting hibernation you can use directly raw logs. So, as a hunter spends the night in this winter hut, maybe two or three at most, and goes on his way further. Beauty is not important here, but the ability to spend the night in a warm place, cook your own food and process sable skins is important in the first place.

Whether you are a hunter-fisherman or a hermit, then you will choose the winter hut, and not the hut. Building a winter house is much simpler than building a solid Russian hut. For the hunter, the main thing is simplicity and reliability, because he has not one such winter house in the forest, but several. And the basis of his house, where his family lives, is in a nearby village, or city.

But the hermit does not need a big house, because it is also important for him to quickly build a dwelling for himself, and already start living in it, because the hermit will have enough other worries. But suppose with you that the hermit will use this winter hut as a temporary hut while building a solid hut. What will it look like.

So, before building a taiga winterhouse - our hermit or hunter chooses a suitable place. This is either a small clearing, or a site right along the middle of the forest. Be sure to be in the vicinity of a source of water.

We prepared a place, pulled out the grass, and now we need to think about the first crown of the future winter hut. In general, by and large, you can put the first one, if this winter hut is not very expensive for you, but if you are going to live there for a long time, it is better to take this issue more seriously. The first crown of the hibernation is recommended to be made of larch, since it rots very slowly than all the others, but if it is not nearby, then from what it is. Under the crown, you can put stones, or you can put logs directly on the ground.

The material for the construction are coniferous trees. Pine and larch are well suited, but fir and fir are also possible. You can also use cedar and chop it without undue pity, because such thinning sanitary cuttings clear the place for larger, stronger cedars. Thick trees are not worth chopping, it will optimally be 15-25 cm in diameter.

The first two or three crowns are best made from thicker ones, and the rest from less. You can drag the logs to the place alone, without a partner. Raw pine with a diameter of 25 cm per meter will weigh about 40 kg (suggested by an experienced taiga).

Log lengths i.e. the length of the wall of your winter house will be enough for you about 3-4 meters per person completely. It turns out that a 4-meter log with a diameter of 25 cm will weigh about 120 kg. But you will not raise the whole log, but only one side of it, you will drag the other with a drag. It’s hard anyway, but it’s real for one person.

If it’s really hard, then you can chop thinner trees, they just need a little more and that's it. How to cut a tree is shown in the figure:

LAYING Wreaths

Before laying crowns, logs must be debarked. those. remove the bark from them. You can certainly not do this, but you are going to live there for a long time? For debarking, you can use a pointed shovel, a scraper, your hopeless hopeless ax. Around the beginning of May, the bark should peel well from a tree, it also peels better from already dried logs harvested in winter. Dried logs are harder to process than raw logs, but they are lighter.

There are two main types of laying crowns: "into the bowl" and "in the paw". There is also a simpler version of the "paw" method, widely used by hunters - "to the floor of the tree". The following photos show the huts with crowns laid by these methods.


Paw laying

Wood flooring

The easiest method is "flooring the tree." With the "in the bowl" method, logs are better adjacent to each other, and therefore there is less chance of cracks in the walls. Between the logs, moss is laid, which is full in the taiga. Moreover, raw moss is much better than dry. Dry moss crumbles and is blown away by the wind when, like raw, it lays down well.

Do not worry about the fact that the moisture from the moss will contribute to decay, everything will soon dry itself, along with our raw logs. Moreover, in the moss there are many natural preservatives that worsen the decay of the tree. Mash the crowns of your taiga winterhouse should be good! Moss is not worth it at all! Otherwise, it may not be pleasant for you at all, since in winter every tiny slit brings a lot of problems when cold air is blown into it.

The photo shows an example of crowns folded according to the method "in the floor of a tree" and kneeling them. It can be seen that the first crown is covered with earth and longitudinal grooves are made at the logs.

Longitudinal grooves are not necessary at all. In this photo they are made using a chainsaw, but you are unlikely to have it. You can just shove it with an ax and put more moss in this place. Actually the whole point in moss, the more it is - the better!

How many logs will be needed for construction? Well, in general, a lot, but this is certainly not the answer, and so let's count with you. The height of the walls will be roughly 180 cm, i.e. so that a person with an average height does not have to bend down. Divide 180 by 20 and get 9 logs on the wall. Multiply by 4 walls = 36 logs. But the hut should still have a roof and a floor. This will require boards, about them later.

How many logs are needed for boards is hard to say. If you cut down the forest with a reserve, then this balance is differently different for you to come in handy somewhere else. The forest does not become much poorer, given that you will cut mainly as a sanitary cutting. Also, do not forget about windows with doors - for them it will be necessary to make cuts in the logs, and it would be desirable to fix the logs themselves with a spike. To do this, you will need to drill through the logs and hammer a wooden spike into this hole so that the logs do not part.


Naturally, you will not have the opportunity to buy boards and bring them to the forest, and there is nothing to it. Boards are made in place. For this, it will be necessary to select the most straight-layered trees, without twisting and bending of the trunk. For the manufacture of boards you only need an ax, and everything else is already done with it. You will need to cut a pair of wedges with which you will chop the log.

The board obtained by this method is called "Fuck". First, with an ax, we make small cuts at the base of the trunk, and then with the butt of the same ax, we simply hammer our stakes there, in turn, first one, then the second. So that the stakes touch the entire diameter of the trunk. And with this method, carefully, we dissolve the log on the boards, which will be much stronger than those sawn by saw, because all the fibers are preserved, but we chop along them. You can also use a wooden sledgehammer instead of an ax, then the blows will be softer.

In the photo, the boards are sawn with a chainsaw, but it will look about the same.


Roofs in winters are of two types: with an attic and without. Attic roofs are single-pitch and gable. In principle, you can build any of them. Below you can see examples of these roofs.

Roof with attic

Roof without attic

Roof with attic, pitched

Why do I need an attic? Firstly, it can be used as a pantry, folding various things in it, and drying herbs in the summer. Secondly, the attic is warmer, especially when the attic is closed, as the roof becomes smaller and the warm air rises to the top. And the lower the roof, the easier it is to keep warm in such a winter hut. Most hunters build their huts with the attic. But without an attic it’s easier to build, it will require much less material.

The attic roof is essentially two roofs, one located at an angle of 90 ° to the walls, and the second is already above it. From the bottom photo we see that the first roof can be laid not even with boards, but directly with small logs or their halves.

Between the logs, it will also be necessary to lay moss, and pour the earth on top, or cover it with roofing material (polyethylene). But for pr

1) Youthful maximalism

Extremely popular event. When young people, who are often not even 16 years old, "decide for themselves" that they urgently need to go live in the taiga (or on an uninhabited island). Such a decision is tantamount to suicide and akin to him. Teenage suicides come from an overabundance of feelings and the play of hormones in the body, which control the will. Those. it’s not a person who decides that he needs to leave, but hormones are pushing him to do it, just as they lead him to despair, in which he decides to commit suicide. In either case, this is not at all what a person needs, and he should simply endure hormonal surges, a similar mood and depressive, otherwise leaving for the taiga can end fatally for him. History already knows such cases. (google: "Hermit Igor Grudnitsov"). In short, guys, you don’t need to ruin yourself in a fit of these feelings, I am against and I urge you not to do this with my whole project. Well, read other articles, you’ll understand everything!

2) Separation from parents

Most often, such bold, vivid statements are made by people aged 16 to 25 years, i.e. still young people in the prime of their hormonal development. When a young man (or a girl, which is not uncommon) embarks on the path of adulthood, finishes day-time education, and takes the first step toward independence. As a rule, this person continues to live with his parents, as he does not have his own living space. If before he did not experience any special problems, he completely and completely obeyed the will of his "birth", but now all this parental control is already becoming inappropriate.

One way or another, parents begin to annoy this person. They constantly give their advice, climb "under the skin", ask what they are not supposed to know at all, still look at him as a little child, but begin to demand already "in an adult way". And simple, polite "denial" stops working. Accumulating a large load, all this negativity begins to put pressure on a person and settles in him with a dead sediment.

In this case, it does not matter what type of personality and character he has - thoughts about how to leave to live in the taiga under such conditions may arise in different people. Be it introverts or extroverts, lyrics or logic, techies and humanities.

When all these requirements coincide, then the person has the thought: "But do not I go somewhere?" And it doesn’t matter whether in the taiga or living on an island. Anywhere, just to get the hell out of this arbitrariness.

Such people begin to study the relevant forums and sites (like this), look for materials on how to make their move, what to do, look for the experience of those who have already moved, etc. Further, if vital energy is enough, then a person takes real action: preparing for the move, collecting taiga equipment, and accumulating finances. Someone dreams of moving to the remote taiga, while someone likes a sparsely populated village, while others consider tropical islands.

Further, in most cases, all attempts to move end in failure due to great infantilism and lack of life experience. The more a person advances along the path of preparation, the more difficulties he has. As a result, a person simply comes to the thought: “But will I not stupidly rent an apartment or a room and not live separately?”. A person gets a job, rents an apartment, lives for a while, then girls appear, relations with friends resume, and again he becomes a full-fledged member of society, and not a complete sociophobe. It turns out that all his problems were that he continued live with parentswho did not give him freedom and prevented him from living. Psychologists call this problem separation, that is, the need to separate and move away from parents somewhere. Consequently, going to the taiga was only a rush of feelings that took possession of man - and this is not at all what he wanted from his life, naively believing that in the remote taiga or on a desert island he would not have any problems and worries and would live like in a fairy tale, like in paradise.

3) The propensity of personality and weakness of character

The desire arises among introverts, in closed people, in people who, in principle, are not used to big and noisy companies, for partying with drunk screams all over the street, etc. In short, people who are prone to solitude, and which society cannot accept. These people are passive, weak-minded. In life, they rarely when they can finish some difficult thing to the end, they throw it, leaving in confusion and depression, as if their hands are growing from the wrong place, and they supposedly can not do anything. In fact, they simply don’t have the patience to finish difficult things to the end.

Not ready to cope with various duties, not willing to compete in the "human pack", they dream of leaving everything and going somewhere, "far, far" and without looking back. Some rudiments of these traits are found in all people without exception, who want to go into the wilderness, someone has more, someone less.

As a result, the problem is also solved by separation: moving to a village, to an island or somewhere else. The thing is that our human society, like any other flock of animals, is built on the principle of “the strongest survives” and “if you want to live, know how to spin!” As in the wild world of animals, our life does not tolerate weaknesses, and only the strongest survive. In order to get a livelihood, you must compete for them, fight, go to any difficulties, be in an unpleasant environment, but with a guaranteed piece of bread. If you want to continue your family and have children, you must compete for the female, try to provide for her and the children.

In short, many, many problems and worries that make my head swell. And all these tasks frighten such a person - a weak person. Not for the sake of philosophy, but solely for the sake of his weakness, he takes flight from his problems, leaves society and no longer even remembers creating a family and children. At the same time, he is trying to find some excuses for his actions. Often he really leaves, lives alone and enjoys life, but he loses in the struggle for survival. In almost 100% of cases, such boys were raised by mothers, i.e. without any pronounced paternal upbringing. They do not have before them masculine examples to follow and copy. In them, like a man’s body, with all the primary and secondary sexual characteristics that have been relied upon, “male software” is not loaded due to the fact that the mother (or grandmother) raised it, but “female software” is laid down, and they respond to all problems and difficulties will also be, based on those programs that the mother laid in them.

As a result, such people, even having moved, do not find happiness for themselves, because problems overtake a person throughout his life. Then such a man begins to regret about what he had done, that he did not start a family and did not give a damn about it. That he could, but did not take his chance. When the "middle-aged crisis" comes or a little later, he looks back, looks at his former friends and acquaintances, at classmates. All are some kind of bumps, and only he is practically homeless. Without a family, without children, without material assets, and most importantly, without spiritual growth and spiritual achievement, since initially the motives for his asceticism were completely different (escape from society, from problems, from difficulties). He understands that he lived all this time in vain.

Он жил, просто пытаясь удовлетворить свои естественные потребности: добыть пищу, сохранить тепло и т.д. И понимает, что существование его некчёмно и ничтожно - тогда к нему приходят мысли о самоубийстве. Да, он сохранил себе нервы, живя в тихом, ненапряжном месте. Любовался природой. Он сохранил себе здоровье, не нюхая выхлопных газов автомобилей, но он потерял свою жизнь полностью и вернуть ничего уже нельзя. Тоска и печаль приходят к такому человека каждый день, по очереди, в итоге он находит утешение лишь в бутылке. Безысходность и отсутствие смысла. Тоска и одна лишь серость. “But I could have done it completely differently,” is the most popular thought in his head.

4) Under the "old shop"

Who is already over 50-60, adult children, his wife, is either tired of it already, the viper, or the clever beauty, and leaves with him, completely shares his views, supporting his man in all his endeavors. And children live their own lives, raise grandchildren. Often such men are given such thoughts, they already have a lot of life experience, they have just seen everything, can afford a good financial basis, or some kind of passive income (for example, from renting an apartment in the city). Or they can just organize some small business right there. Or maybe even ready to live on what is. They are attracted to nature.

They climb into the taiga wilderness, get settled by foresters, rangers, just buy houses in the villages or build a chain of small houses in the taiga - winter hut, and are engaged in the extraction of furs.

When their main male function has already been completed, they move and live happily, in harmony with nature. They do not look back, with sad eyes, saying: “But I could!” - but they look at the past with a smile and pleasantly recall their youth that was not lost.

In this case, going to the taiga, to hell with pies, will be deliberate and will not bring any negative consequences. This is the best option for leaving in the wilderness, moving out of the city.

5) Young family

But, again, not in the remote taiga, just building a hut in the middle of the forest, but in a residential village. Many do so, this option is called downshifting. When you are still not many years old, but there is a loving and understanding wife / bride who, like you, wants to live in nature. This is the best option, since already from a young age you can begin to build your life in a new role. Raising children not in dirty cities, on the "shop poison", but on healthy food grown independently and acquired somewhere nearby (rural shops, neighbors, I mean).
