I'm hoping this is a joke thread and OP is just backpacking around South America like a normal person.

Don't get eaten by alive some bugs or other creepy crawlers.

Last known contact of Keraj37 was Feb 22, 2019.

15 years pass and a highly experienced team head into the jungle for scientific research when all of a sudden...

The legendary Keraj37 was seen only for a brief moment, swinging through the vast amount of trees never to be seen again.

keraj37 keraj37 Good to hear you are alive and kicking. I'm going to assume that while you are going into the rainforest you are also not going too deep.

Don't worry mate, you're not missing anything. A C-list actor committed career suicide, Crackdown 3 wasn't the next coming of Christ, and the EU is still business as usual. Keep it real mate down there.

Thanks all for support and comments. Some are really funny and made me smile.

I will be straight honest now - I tried to live like I described but it was to much for me.
The heat, constant sweating, incredible exhaustion after few days, it all pushed me back to my home in Europe.

You were all right about how stupid idea it was.

The biggest problem was water - for some reason it wasn't raining at all even if it supposed to be rainy season - that is why I couldn't count on that source of clean water.

Also there is plenty of people living like that in the forests in French Guiana - they call them smokers. I was just 5th wheel in that car.

Hey, it's going to be a great pickup line.

"I just got back from trying to live in the rainforest. I can't recommend it."

Hey, but still, good job on making it that far. You had a goal and went after it and obviously got a ton of valuable experience from it. Really proud of you, man!

Welcome back OP. What did you do while you were there anyway? Just walk around and chop down plants? Did you have a tent or did you do a hammock or how were you sleeping?

Glad you made it Back OP.

Some more impressions would be nice and some pictures of what was going on there and about the smokers. Happy you’re alive and well!

Well smokers are just homeless people taking advantage of tropical climate, but also they are burning stuff wherever they stay for a while - I don't know why, but I assume it is kind of drug.
Here are some pictures I made returning home.

I didn't have tent and I didn't use the hammock - plain sleep on the ground. In one place the ants almost ate my arm off. Very aggressive creatures.

Hate to say I told you so, but there’s stubborn and then there is willfully stupid. I would do some real soul searching if I were you, maybe therapy because there’s something misfiring upstairs I think. Good luck.
