Appalachian trail for a few months of just working part time in general because they think they will be the next Pre? It just doesn't make sense. They are either rich or don't care about starving when they are senior citizens.
Given inflation, the rise of AI (loss of basic jobs), and loss of things like pensions - it would seem millennials are screwed.
Also the other day I mentioned this to a coworker and he thought it was normal for the parents to give $$ to their kid if they decided to quit their job and travel. I was like wtf I would never ask my parents to give me money even if I was homeless. I would rather just die.
