Escape Plan

Describe your ultimate escape plan (and tell us what you’re escaping from).

I have often thought about starting afresh in another place, leaving it all behind here and going off to a place where non one knows who I am. If I wanted to I could live in total anonymity and not make more than the casual of acquaintances and not have any connections to anyone but perhaps a landlord and the local bartender.

Being the futuristic scifi nerd that I am, my ultimate escape plan would be to pack a few belonging in a small starship, enough space for a couple of rooms and stuff, and take off into deep space. Find a small, peaceful planet with plenty of rivers, lush green grass meadows and mountains but no people on it. Land the ship in a nice secluded location and spend the days in quiet solitude.

But in reality….just two days away from home would be great. It wouldn’t even have to be very far. Somewhere in the district. Pack a bag, a book and head to a nice hotel somewhere. Just a room with room service, ac and cable tv. That’s not hard to find and it’s dooable. But I won’t tell anyone where I was. Just pay the front desk, get food and drink delivered to you. Sit in bed all day, read eat a pizza and some beer and relax. Watch some silly movie all night long. Just switch your mobile off. It would do!
