    When I was 12 years old, I ran a way with my dog and shotgun. The cops found me along the RR tracks. I thought the RR tracks led to the wilderness.

    I did, but I was only 4 or 5 years old...I saw it on "Leave It To Beaver" (the TV show) and thought it looked like a really neat idea. I took my Flag blanket that my Grand Mothere made me, my stuffed bunny, Sam, and a sack lunch. It was about 8 PM. I told my parents what I was doing, and went across the street to a block of vacant lots in our neighborhood. I had laid out my bed and gotten in it and was laying down. My other called all the neighbors and they were all looking out the door at me. I got embarassed and ran home. They all thought I was afraid....I was just embarassed.

    when I was 17 I ran away and joined the Army, some people over in another country started shooting at me and many times I wished i was back home shoveling S%$t and milking cows.

    mdprepper I sold my soul to The_Blob. He had candy...

    I wanted to runaway when I was 4 or 5. I packed up my stuffed animals and told my Mom I was leaving...she gave me bus fare!!!!! She did hide around the corner in case a bus actually showed up. I went back home after a few minutes because it was raining.
