For 2020 the US federal income tax standard deduction is $12,400. Folks who are earning (or withdrawing from retirement) $1000/mo or less in 2020 have effectively opted out of the federal income taxation[-is-theft] matrix.
The flipside of that position is to minimize any burden I might put on the federal govt. I do use public lands and do my best to “leave them better than I found them” as the Boy Scouts say.
[few hours break, and a hike]
Speaking (broadly) of this, doggo and I went for a nice hike this afternoon. These features are huge although it’s hard to tell on camera:
Def not Grand Canyon huge, but one sees the family resemblance to that area (150mi away, IIRC).
On the way out there we passed a BLM sign that said ‘NO CAMPING DOWN THIS ROAD”. The part that said “EXCEPT FOR AIRSTREAMS” must have faded away:
The dirt road is strewn with small boulders. “I hope that guy doesn’t break an axle or shred a tire on the way out”, he said with a straight face.
