Living life constantly surrounded by people and plugged into the internet can cause major sensory overload. Even the most extroverted city-dwellers among us have likely daydreamed of running away to the woods and living off the land. But few have the initiative (or survival skills) to pick up and make a life off the grid happen.

So, when people truly have the gumption to break a lease and go live on a boat, or pack up their things and pitch a small tent in the wilderness, it's equal parts fascinating and inspiring for the rest of us.

In a popular Reddit thread, people who have lived off the grid shared how it changed their lives (for better or worse) and it's telling how many people prefer it.

1. owlwithakeyboard grew up on a boat.

I spent the first six years of my life aboard a 31' sailboat. My dad was in the military and bought the boat rather than living on-base. When he and my mom got together it was easier for my mom to move aboard than it was for him to sell the boat. Then I was born, my parents moored in the Bay Area of California, and the rest was history.
