    Got mini fridge for Christmas for the camper one year....had to try it out...loaded it with beer....would hold a 30 pack.
    Look like walnut, so stayed in the living room next to the couch as a beer cooler for several years.
    (Bought a 3 way for the camper.)

    Be aware which way the door opens on the fridge ....for proper access.....

    Petester, I don't know how old you are, but if you are older than 18, it sounds like a good time to leave. Being around drug addicts, no matter how close or if they are family, only pulls you down as well. In that case, distance is the best option. However, running to the mountains won't solve the problem. Running to a town or city that happens to be in the mountains, and getting a job, can be a solution. Also, look at increasing your education, whether that is college or a trade school. The government definitely has programs to help Native Americans further their education. Also, employers who are into affirmative action like to have Native's on the payroll, so you can use that to your advantage.

    Petester definitely has problems and issues and I sincerely hope he will obtain help.

    For those who dis South Dakota, you are mistaken. Get out of your vehicle and get off the interstate and look around a bit. Maybe even go for a hike. South Dakota has lots to offer. Much of it is in the Black Hills, but the rest of the state is very pleasant. A few years ago I cycled from Rapid City to Sisseton (NE corner) and it was truly delightful .

    This clown can't be real, either that or he's either neglected to take his meds, or he's under 9 years old and making up fairy tales.

    I"d take one of Chief AJi's slingbows instead, along with some of Dave Canterbury's 3 pc take down arrows, for big stuff, if big stuff is your plan, of course. Probably highly illegal to take such, without licenses, in season,etc. Better off with a takedown pellet rifle. Being seen with any sort of weapon is highly likely to get you into big legal trouble, or at the least, told (maybe at gun-point) to get off of a guy's property. He'll probably call his neighbor, too, who will do the same. Stick to backroads, so the cops won't accuse you of hitchhiking.

    If you are fat and carry 30 lbs of high calorie food, like Macadamia nuts, jerky, chocolate and Ramen noodles, , you should be able to hike for a month, and a month, alongside roads, should suffice for 500 miles. If taking the roads adds to the length of your hike, you'll just have to carry more food. You're going to need to carry a lot of water, so figure on 70 lbs of gear, etc. There's guys have done so, on the Appalachian trail, for months at a time, covering 20+ miles a day, in the mountains, which = 40 miles on flat, open land.

    Buhahahahahahaha! I'm fat and the only way I'll carry a 70 pound pack is in the back of the truck...If I can find someone else to put it in there. You might notice my small book bag in my avatar. Thanks for the evening chuckle.

    Yeah, lots of sound advice. I'd say, try a week long outing for the firs time. Then 2 weeks, a month, and so on. Do NOT do this trip as your first survival trip.
