One of the first questions people ask me when I tell them I live in van is, where do you charge your cell phone and your computer battery?
I charge them at the library or the coffee shop.
The McDonald’s in my neighborhood has free Wi-Fi but doesn’t have any plugs. Fortunately I got a new computer recently and it has about 5 hours on the battery before I need to charge it. So sometimes I sit at McDonald’s for a while with a $1.00 plus tax coffee-with one free refill. I need my coffee and this is the cheapest option I know of. Then if I run the battery down and still want to use the net, I go the the library and plug everything in. I don’t always run the 5 hours of battery down in one day.
Anyway, I’m at the library now…it’s quite the homeless hangout and someone stinks really bad. It’s distracting!
