Safe Places for Van Dwellers

I generally don’t do anything besides sleeping at my sleep spots.

So I also need safe places to get organized and clean out the van.  I mean safe from prying, judgmental eyes.  I have seen homeless people pull apart their vehicles, suitcases and backpacks in a very public way and it looks very bad.  I’m not sure if they just don’t care or if drugs/alcohol/insanity make them unaware of their surroundings.

Hey, I understand that it’s important to be organized so you can find things and of course, sometimes things spill and whatnot.

I suppose, the homeless people who will never work again just don’t care.  Why should they.  I wouldn’t.

Anyway, my favorite places to cleanup and organize my stuff are, the storage unit, a couple of the churches and, for smaller jobs (if I’ve been keeping things up pretty well and I just need to straighten up a bit-with the doors closed) at the park or the library.

I have tinting on my windows so if I don’t get out of the van, it is likely no one will see me in the daytime.  At night, shadows can be seen but I can’t see well enough to get organized at night anyway.

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.

    I would use @ flameless candle at night to be able to clean the van’s interior & not to be noticed from the outside.
