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.
