For those who want to pull off the whole "Grizzly Adams Wilderness He-Man" shtick, there are a few different methods available. You could cast off all of your earthly possessions, renounce corporate society, and go live in the woods (it will probably only take a few tries before you figure out which leaves should never be used as toilet paper).

Or you could take this short survey, potentially win a $150 gift certificate to R.E.I., and stock up on all the outdoor gear you really need to get by.

To enter, email the final question of the survey to with "$150 R.E.I. Gift Card" as the subject line. Standard contest rules apply. Only open to US residents. Readers may also enter by sending the survey question and their contact information to Gawker Media, Attn: "$150 R.E.I. Gift Card Survey, 210 Elizabeth Street, Third Floor, New York NY 10012. The contest begins on June 1 at 11:59am EST and ends on December 31 at 11:59pm EST.
