Where’s MY Car?

Yah so this Black dude was walking 21 miles a day to work so people donated and he got a car.

I’ve been riding my bike at least 21 miles a day for a couple of months….

Could this guy not even get a bike?  Would have made things a lot easier.

I really don’t understand anyone who would walk that far for a crappy job where he couldn’t even afford a $20 bike (goodwill sells em that cheaply).  I might be missing something though.

Then again, in Detroit you probably need a real place to live.  It’s too cold to live in your van or in a storage unit.  Maybe his apartment, untilities etc. takes up his whole check.  Sad.

I’m sure there are TONs of people who live like this guy does.

Here in my town, lots are using skateboards for transportation.  I have a spare bike and I also have an adult sized scooter I could use in a fix.  Walking is toooooo slooooooow.

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.

    He didn’t walk it entirely , he took city transit but it didn’t go his full travel, so he walked the remainder ( this is going TO work ) , I gather he did walk moreso after his shift ,sometimes a banker ( ironic this ) would give him a ride for part of the way.

    Btw , have you thought of selling blood ?

    You might have to approach others on your own , but I’m not sure.
    Don’t know if this would work for you , but there you go

    Yes, your blog inspires me. I admire your resourcefulness and values. Caring what others think and making a good impression is important to me, too. I’ve been sleeping in my van for 2 years, but I don’t look homeless because I stay clean, cut my hair, and I shave my beard clean everyday.

    I agree that sometimes it’s easier to die than to live, but it’s not your style 🙂

    Write me next time you feel low, okay?

    Yer Pal, Steve
