Free Sleeping

Some days I feel homeless in the worst sense of the word and some days I feel as if I’m just a free sleeper.   Perceiving of myself as a free sleeper feels infinitely better than considering myself homeless.

As far as I can tell, the term “free sleeping” was first coined by this guy.

Glenn Campbell is this dude who used to work as a baggage handler for US Airways until he got laid off in 2008. The good news: He still got to fly for free for three more years—without the inconvenience of working for it. The bad news: He had little money and couldn’t afford rent or hotels. The solution: He became deliberately homeless, finding ways to live comfortably while paying little or no rent. This blog recounts some of the things he learned. — It’s all about freedom, creativity, and finding clever ways to do what you want within the limited resources you have.

I just discovered this blog today.  I’ve got a lot of reading to do.  Yipee!

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    That is a really great site. One thing he wrote is that if you can get through the 7 hours of sleep, the rest is cake.

    So true. Most mornings when I wake up in the van, I feel so blessed to have gotten a good night’s sleep-for FREE.
