I'll be using the Aokigahara technique on the full moon of July 2018:

45 degrees Fahrenheit + 20 degrees from a small campfire

winds: ~SSW @ 1-5 mph

Colorado Rockies

@ lunar midnight (when the moon is at it's zenith, as with solar noon)

barbiturate, sweet moscato wine, root beer & CBD gummy bears, stuffed animals x4 (gift from brother), portable bluetooth speaker & mp3 player, and a 6 cubic-feet aluminum nitro rig for backup method (mandatory for going the Aokigahara way, IMHO; Aokigahara technique WILL result in death, whether by method, backup method, or starvation/exposure to the elements)

It helps to invoke the aid of an external clock (cosmic, meteorological, biological, etc.) by which to sync a deadline; I will be dead at ~25.306 revolutions around the sun.

I'll post a picture of my backpack and its contents before I head out 3 weeks from now.

*My first attempt was in the desert in early spring (which was coincidentally the same week reddit shut down sanctioned suicide), but I decided to abort, had to save up more money via wage slavery, and acquire the compact nitro rig to serve as backup. I wanted the desert location but its July temperatures are too forbidding.

Neither myself nor any other human will ever occupy the same square kilometer of my bones, for the remainder of eternity. The Aokigahara technique allows the added benefit of solving the decomposition problem entirely: I'm not going to see it, and neither will anyone else.

Good luck man. It sounds like you've put a lot of work into this.

Thank you. I've had so many visualizations, but I know that ultimately the firsthand experience is where its at. The remote outdoors never fail to engage both mind & body (climbing, walking, observing, resting, building a fire, etc.) --always loved it, must have something to do with being ape :blarg:

I wish you the best. It's clear that this is a well thought out method, and I particularly enjoy the addition of three backups in case things go askew. And, if it must come to starvation, I hope you can will yourself until the end.
Good luck.
