One Foot in Front of the Other

Sorry that the comments are disabled right now but hopefully Mooch will be able to fix the problem soon.

I’m having a very tough time now. My van transmission appears to be finished.  My current plan is to Aaa tow it back to my go-to sleep spot and still use it to sleep in and pay a man a few bucks to move it for me every couple of days.

I have sought out temporary shelter and that is in the works but it is a two and a half hour bus ride each way, from where my clients live. I’m also guessing that they have rules for being “in house” by a certain hour and I’m not sure if I will be able to do it with my work schedule.

I may end up sleeping rough for a while.  I’m not sure how everything is going to play out.  I am stubborn, I don’t want to lose my little business and at the moment, I’m willing to sleep rough to keep it.  I may change my mind when it gets colder.

I’m also going to look for cheap rooms for rent at the laundromat. I can afford to pay maybe $400.

That’s all I have to say at the moment.  I’m a little low in the physical realm but still have good spirits. The sun is shining and I still have a a couple of aces up my sleeve.



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.

    Surely there is a trick to sleeping rough. Maybe get an animal to watch you while you sleep.

    You could sleep a few hours during the day, and some at night, depending on feel. 3 hours in and 3 hours out is too long, unacceptable.

    Look around you. The city has thousands of little hiding spots. Most people are not very aware of what’s around them. In a good neighborhood, there would be almost no chance of detection/assault.

    I hate the idea of you sleeping rough.
    Hopefully there will be a room for rent in your price range. I know prices are terrible in so cal.
