It depends. For example mindcrafter can try to do it pretty early since they have minor displacement spell, thet can be used to try and teleport away from ambushers. And with major displacement run away ambushers easily.
Other classes that do not have teleport of any sort may buy phase door scrolls or teleport scrolls, and achieve the same.

So if you want to attempt a travel, make sure you have enough of that scroll for emergency cases.

Depends, yes. If you got something doing whopping damage, think Tonberry Warrior...you pretty much need just 5+ Teleportation scrolls and off you go...starting at clvl 5...at least when I play melee-based Tonberry characters

Once you clear stronghold, you are easily strong enough for the second town. Just take ?teleport and ?recall for desperation. And reset your recall level in stronghold to one--it's a desperation escape from wilderness, at the cost of on scroll of recall.

Usually I clear a few stronghold levels and then head for morivant and the angband dungeon as soon as I can save up enough to buy 10 or 12 teleport scrolls.

And I'll usually stop at orc cave along the way, just to go down the stairs and have a quick look around. That way I can recall into orc cave later.

Exception would be if its a really feeble character, or has found some valuable object and I dont want to take any chances, then I'll skip orc cave.

@murphy--
I usually clear stronghold first, since it's so similar to angband, then dive hard in angband.

In any case, don't bother clearing orc cave until you get a good shooter, or plenty of magic devices. It's a mug's game taking on high-hp uniques if you can't kill them and their escorts quickly. Killing azog shouldn't be an epic fight.

Orc's cave is pretty nice if you have a wand: beam of light & either rfire or detect evil & speed potions (& of course !ccw & ?teleports). I usually don't complete stronghold, open orc caves & angband. If Azog's going to be too hard you can recall then just leave him till you want to fight him.

But same as murphy, about 10 ?teleport & a few recalls.

Actually, the very first thing I do is thieves quest, if I have a suitable character. (Leprechaun is suitable, because of starting cash. So is a good fighter.)
