I know as well as pretty much everybody else that the purpose of the paleo diet is metabolism, not reenactment. Otherwise, where the heck are we gonna find a mammoth to hunt?
But I really do think it'd be awesome to once in a while throw on some furs, knap a flint spearhead, and maybe chase down a deer to roast over an open fire.
We used to do survival "campouts" when I was growing up in AK. The idea was to bring along as little as you could and survive by building a shelter, gathering food, and making fire, etc.
We would mostly eat fish, berries, limpets, clams, fiddle greens, dear hearts.. Our shelters were just small lean-tos, just enough to keep the rain off.
These campouts would bring us about as close to nature as you would ever want to get, (think wet and cold) and give you a pretty good idea what our ancestors were living like. Although I imagine they were way better at it.
I highly recommend it, call it Minimalist Camping, maybe it will be the next big thing in the Paleo-sphere (I expect full credit).
It's kind of depressing to think of just how much more hardcore a Pleistocene human was than we are and how much greater their tolerance for discomfort was. The chasm between us and them or between us and a modern HG is massive. As silly as such reenactment is, it's probably a good thing for recalibrating your appreciation for what you have.
