Could You Vanish for a Month?

A while back, I posted information on a challenge from a writer at Wired Magazine--find him after he purposely vanishes and win $5,000. Here's the story about what happened to him.

Apparently people had so much fun with this challenge that a group from Wired along with some TV producers have decided to find four average people who want to disappear for a month. If any are successful and not caught for the entire month, they will win $10,000. Sound like something you would be interested in? For those who want to practice "dropping out" and living the low profile lifestyle, this sounds like a very interesting place to start.

If you would be interested in applying, check out the link here.


  1. Very Interesting! I would imagine that the "average joe" would not have so many people, with such dedication looking for them. But, they would also need to remember that the search goes on forever. Case in point: the woman who escaped prison in Michigan in the 70's (?) and was found last year, living in California. I think it could still be done, I jst hope that I never have to.

  2. I have in the past. It requires enormous personal discipline and an understanding of "the grey man".
