Can anyone identify this book?: It is science fiction and set, I think, a few hundred years in the future, where humans have nanotechnology and can control the environment around them (get rid of dust in their vicinity; don't have to go to the bathroom, etc). I've only read a small portion of it, but a character recalls a kind of trial that people go through at a certain age when they spend a winter out in the wilderness (living in log cabins), without the luxury of nanotechnology. However, a fire destroys the log cabins, and they have to survive until spring arrives, fighting off a bear at one point. That isn't the plot, though, just a little subplot in a flashback. Does anyone recall anything like this?

Take away the nanotechnology and it sounds like life used to be 200 years ago.

It was a trial. They live in an advanced world.
