How do you see Wilderness in your future?

In the future I want wilderness to serve as my escape. A place where I can be free to live and explore for myself. I want Wilderness to save me from the chaos and stupid things that society brings out in people, myself included.

Wilderness is a state of mind where each person is not trying to outdo the other person. It's a place where we are all going through the same things.

I want Wilderness to be a place without bars or windows where you can be 100% in the natural way of life. I want to be able to backpack and camp and hike and almost everything in the Wilderness.
