    What do you mean by "rough it for a few months"? Tent in the forest? Anyplace in Canada. Go into town all scruffy and wild-eyed to buy your crate of instant noodles, they'll know what you're up to, and won't ask questions.

    Most of the planet is unowned. Unless you have a particular meaning of owned.

    maybe he means "not claimed by any nation" - in which case, you'll have your work cut out

    That's possible. National possession is not quite the same as ownership, but I can see it could br thought of that way. If we ignore the title and look at only his post, then all he needs is a small boat and some supplies: he can take to the ocean.

    There are thousands of places you could go, if you are looking for somewhere that is "unowned" though, i think Ophiolite is right and the international waters is about the only place you could go. Scandinavia or Canada would probably be your best bet.

    Just in case you are not already aware of this. You must research throughly the food that can be found wherever you plan to go, how to prepare it and cook it. Any dangers that you may face such there as bears, land slides and how to deal with them. Take a first aid course. Make sure you are properly equipped with high quality tools (and the correct ones) knife, axe, first aid kit, proper clothing, cooking utensils etc.

    If you do not have much experience in the type of environment you plan to travel in, you should take a couple of courses to prepare you for it. You can find plenty of them online for a reasonable price. If you have no experience you must do the above and read "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer for a taste of what can go wrong and also buy a copy of "The SAS Survival Hand Book" by John 'Lofty' Wiseman and practise as much as you can from the book particularly firelighting, shelter building, hunting, traps, preparing food, navigation and finding and cleaning water.

    Good luck and have fun.

    A satellite phone could save your life in the event of trouble.

    If I had enough money I’d visit Antarctica, no question. AFAIK, most of it is totally unowned.

Most of British Columbia province is still "crown land" and not privately owned. Finding a site is easy: It's almost anywhere outside the tiny portion of settlements. But the thing is, you've got to find some source of income away from civilization. Some guys operate a portable sawmill or do other odd jobs, some do burglaries, or grow marijuana.


    If you want your own country, I suggest Hans Island. It's the subject of territorial dispute between Canada and Denmark, being smack on the Canada-Greenland border. Neither side actually wants the tiny rock, but legally it must be contested. So if someone raised a proud new flag of the sovereign Hans nation I think we'd all be glad just to write that problem off the books.

    earth-science reviews publishes review papers of all aspects of earth sciences or treatises on an expanding earth sciences subject. covering a much wider field than the usual specialist journals, it allows the reader to see his particular interest related to the earth sciences as a whole. because of the breath and depth of its approach to subjects of current interest, the journal is an important vehicle of information gathering for instructors, students, research scientists, government agencies involved in programme support and management and in environmental assessment and control. private industries concerned with planetary resources and the independent consultant
