Do you think this is a crazy idea?

@OmSigDAVID,
I agree.. ( on the no big deal part) and I have had that conversation with others before..

They will say "well you were not really homeless"... and though I get offended, I know that they are speaking from a technical point of view only.
But , wether you are sleeping under a bridge or in a car, homeless is homeless.

I really AM interested in peoples' reasoning.

Peoples' conduct is based upon their reasoning.

Peoples' memories combined with peoples' reasoning
define who thay ARE.

It did not occur to me
that this was a sensitive topic,
such as to OFFEND u; if it had, I 'd have kept on scrolling
and said nothing. I considered it to be a safe topic,
and one with which I have had some personal experience --
not homelessness, but sleeping in my car, which I found to be
more comfortable than raising and breaking down my tent.

The last time that I used a tent for camping, I planned to leave
to return to the City at 2 AM, to avoid traffic and conjestion
at the Bridge. It did not occur to me that it woud RAIN,
and I 'd be stashing stuff (wet stuff) in my trunk.

I fly a lot, and I enjoy staying at the best hotels.
I am fond of the Hyatt chain.
However, my car was comfortable enuf
that I found no need for better accomodations
( i.e., no tent nor hotel ).

Admittedly, I have never tried sleeping below a bridge
( is THAT the definition of a troll ? )
but I gotta believe that is a lot worse than sleeping in your car,
unless u have an uncomfortable car. (no offense)
My cars are sealed, waterproof n have good, reclining driver's seats.

@OmSigDAVID,
Im sorry.
I did not mean to say that -you- had offended me.

I was referring to other conversations I have had in my life with people who have questioned my life when i tell them I was homeless.

Sometimes, the people who would ask the question.. were really just clueless as to what it means to be homeless. They had this 'romantic tv show' idea of being homeless... that everything was really NOT bad for the homeless person..
that they get a lot of money, donations, etc..

Others just did not believe me.

I lived in my car, when I had one, or I would sleep under bridges, in shelters etc.. I have even went the route of having camping gear. None of it was truly FUN.. but the freedom has yet been matched for me.

But I was not saying you offended me.. I was merely remarking on how others, in different times of my life have offended me with their statements.

there is your answer

With all respect, no; that does not answer my question.
I accepted the fact of her nudity at face value
( not requesting confirmation thereof ).

I inquired into her motivation, as a matter of interest.
I was hoping that she will reveal the mental processes that resulted in her nakedness.

@Reyn,
Um...Mame...This constant jumping from place to place is called being a BUM! You could crash at my place in Santa Barbara for a few weeks. After that I'm sure my friend Mike could let you sleep in his garage for a while. Before you know it 50 years has gone by and your life is over and you win!

Woops! That was too harsh. But there's nothing I can do about it now. sorry.

@Mame,
2 Cents You're still finding your feet young lady... you've found some freedom over the last year plus a base in 'Couver.

mmmmm..... Mr. A...... too soon maybe? Only you know. You do know already.

Living outta suitcase as a "guest" (albeit (and especially with) family).... k, for a while. Problem that COULD create, if THEY begin to feel as tho you are "just staying there coz you haven't your own base" - if there is any discomfort with any domestic situation or relationship in THEIR lives - you've then gotta move on - and the "uncomfortable" feeling could then linger on.

Me, personally (at this point in time), like my space to run around nekkid if needs be, play loud music, silence when required - up all hours of the nite, walking outside at 3am ommmmmmming at the moon and stars, without anyone wondering where I am or questioning if I'm alright.

RV (is that what it's called) sounds kinda cool right now - best of both worlds..... you can travel around, you can have your space, you can be as social as you wish and stay with people, but not outstay your welcome - and always leave whenever you choose. Even try staying with Mr. A. too - knowing that "set in stone" doesn't apply with a big 'ole truck outside.....

or travel around - but keep the place in 'Couver.


Only you really know how itchy your feet are girlie.

Hugs love to you...x

Just read this thread. I was thinking the same thing as shewolf.

when not working, rent a hotel room or small efficiency.

How many days of the month would you need a place, on the average?

I'm just musing here, throwing out ideas...

If I had my stuff in storage, and only needed a place to sleep and clean up, I'd do the old join a cheap gym and shower/groom there thing. For sleeping arrangments, any odd corner in someones garage, pool house would do...something where there'd be little or no contact with the people living there, so as not to get on their nerves. Hmmm, I'd need a bathroom for getting up in the middle of the night to pee...

I'd spend the day at somewhere like the library, reading.

Who knew there were so many wannabe nomads here?

Your idea sounds like it would be fun for a while. And if you got sick of it, then
you could still set down some roots, no?

Well Mame, to me it would be a very crazy idea. I love being home and having
a home, so I could not live like a nomad, never!

For you, it could be lots of fun though. You're adventurous, easily transplanted,
and somewhat carefree which means: you have the prerequisites for such a
life. You always can get an apartment should you get tired of being "on the road".

@CalamityJane,
Well, I am back (for 2 days) and we agreed to Feb 1 or March 1 move out and ex is okay if I get my stuff out next time I'm here (Nov) since I don't have my car here.

I'll probably succumb and get an apt Sad boo hoo... but hey, it's not over till it's over.

Mame, I just realized your signature says you're naked. In that case, you can stay with me as long as you like.

Well, I'm really disappointed, because with all the opportunities she had during our SF gathering last year, she was never nikked.
