I've discovered potato skins do not last long in the sun.
I grow my coffee in a plantation in Whinertopia. I swim to it & carry the beans back on my head.
I make the fire with a magnifying glass I created out of molten beach sand to roast the beans.
Don't ask what I rubbed together to make the fire for the forge. Lets just say I have dry skin.
My lights are made from fireflies I trapped in a net woven from my beard.
I am Burner. Worship my self reliance.
Now, where's my fucking cocktail?

I was sitting by my humble tent when a mamoth RV pulled up next to me. A few days later, another vehicle arrived to service the behomoth motor vehicle. Nothing wrong with being prepared for harsh conditions. But to pretend that we are self reliant is silly.

I am not getting your point. Did they ask YOU to help pay for the RV or the servicing? Sounds to me like they were pretty self-reliant if they paid for it themselves. Self reliant doesn't mean being a Luddite or doing things exactly the way YOU do them. It means doing whatever you do ... yourself without being a burden on those around you. Believe me, I have seen a lot of tent campers that were the opposite of "self reliant". I'm just not getting your bit about the RV somehow being connected to not being self-reliant.
As for efficiency, the entire fucking thing is inefficient. It isn't some socialist beehive. You carry your shit out there, you carry it out. If you have a Volkswagen Rabbit or a 40ft RV, what difference does it make. Quit whining about what other people do and mind your business.
I see a group of tanker trucks lined up with water available for purchase. Makes sense to me.
