UK Hermit: I Want To Live Away From My Fellow Humans...

...although I don't mind them paying for it.

In the old days you'd simply give away all your belongings to the needy and walk away, finding a place in a wood or on a rocky island somewhere and try to survive as best you could; maybe Britain is too small and well-explored to do such things anymore, but larger countries have enough empty space that it would still be possible to disappear into the wilderness. Australia certainly comes to mind; rural Canada; many places in the US. Here in North Carolina the Olympic bomber Eric Robert Rudolf evaded capture for over 7 years living in the mountains.
