One thing many of you are either doing or considering doing to advance your private life is hitting the road. After all, if you’ve done nothing wrong, have a little cash and a lot of time Earth is a beautiful place to see. Staying on the road and on the move is very private if you use cash. It’s also a force multiplier in the privacy world because nobody knows where you are except when you are right there. Even if you are pulled over on a traffic stop or questioned by national park officials you can be gone the next day. A record that you were at that location and didn’t do anything serious will be a permanent thing but you can go 360 degrees from that point and continue your tour of freedom.
For those of you already doing this I bet you could teach us all a few things but maybe I can add something to your world here. If you are considering hitting the road, dial in because you need to know this stuff:
Your tag will be photographed. Some parks even have License Plate Readers (LPR) at the entrance. Get over it. I cannot advise you to do anything sketchy like paying a homeless person to register a vehicle in their name. Your freedom from this is the fact that you are going to be gone from that point soon and on to the next place.
You will be photographed. National parks all have cameras whether you know it or not. Don’t do anything stupid but also just remember this: You need to stay warm in these parks so make sure you wear a ball cap or stocking cap along with a hooded sweatshirt. The sun is also going to be out and very bright in these parks so make sure before you leave your tint you have your sunglasses on. A beard is not a bad Idea either because we don’t want you to catch a cold!!!
Now, for my first endorsement (I don’t really know if it counts since they are not paying me). Get a few cans of fix-a-flat to go in your car at all times. If you get out on the road, you will soon see that there really is a lot of open road!! Jumper cables or a jump box are also a good Idea.
