Can we get a homeless tier thread? Basically sharing tips and tricks on how to make things last long or cheaper and how to travel nation-wide or internationally for next to free with little money required
I snuck into a hospital and slept in a doctors office before. Wasnt a good nights sleep though because I was worried someone would come in.
Slept in bathrooms
Slept in open fields with nothing but branches to keep me warm
slept in public parks inside a cardboard box. Surprisingly the best nights sleep ive had rough. The box is comfy and has very good insulation.
Slept on a beach.
I can break into any building and sleep there, no problem, there is always a way in and there is always a quiet spot nobody uses.
Well shit! Now we need two threads:
>#1 I'm a bum, not because I'm a self-entitled, lazy, disrespectfull, no motivation, no goals, cheeto eating, red bull drinking, video game playing, porno whacking, kissless permavirgin who's parents are tired of supporting my lazy loafing ass, but because I want to be downwardly mobile and have no real prospects
>#2 all of the above, but without the self-denial and false rationalization about the truth of why you're a filthy, lazyass homeless bum leach sucking off the asshole of society
So yeah, I could see that.
I'm considering being homeless intentionally
>live with family
>40 hour a week job
>20 hour a week second job
>buy and cook own food. Clean own clothes. Etc
Considering buying some land up in Maine. And living out of my truck until I can build a few small cabins
Does this count as homeless?
People still pick up hitchhikers. Get a regional field guide and learn your edibles. Make sure you get a fishing license and stay in forestry areas unless want to end up getting free food and a warm place to sleep for 3-5 days.
It helps to be willing to do odd jobs to cover basic expenses, and replace gear. Make sure you've got decent gear. Sleeping under newspaper in an alley hungry isn't as much fun (presumably) as sleeping in a hammock at the lake eating fresh fish and blueberries.
Actually pretty sure I am, trying to decide if I should build a log cabin and save money or if u should frame everything out. While I have a place to live. And power etc. And haul everything pre built but disassembled in my truck
Check out those micro houses on trailers. You could build one at your parents' place, then hitch it up and have a decent place to live as soon as you're parked. Then build your cabin, and use the tiny home as an in-law unit or rental so you can retire at 21.
There aren't really tips? What a shitty thread.
Overseas is cheap. 2 months in India for 200 bucks? Easy. Airfare is only 300 if you are prepared to die.
In the US you can usually hunt/fish/forage for any food anywhere you are. Just be knowledgeable and legal. Huge country. Lots of extra meat.
Here's the thing. If you are planning on being "homeless" and wandering the world, you need to discuss spend your time preparing and reading. Not asking 4chan for tips. You are off to a bad start. And I think even you realize that you will never even leave your house to start this adventure. I've been homeless. It's not fun unless you really get it. Just stop.
Suppose he does end up doing this, you'd have him go out with no baseline of information to start with? It took me decades of learning survival skills to get to the point that I'm at right now, and I still learn things from open discussion. Don't be an ads hold, his life could be dependant on the things he learns here today.
That was my original idea. Behind everything. Then I checked out some guy on YouTube with a 14x14 solar cabin
I drew up plans. For a 14x14 cabin. As well as a 16x24 cabin
I can prebuild everything here for either cabin. And drive up. Spend one night in my truck and the next day throw up 4 walls and a roof. Tarp the roof for that night. And roof it the next day.
I've got close to 4 years of construction experience. And I like to think I'm half decent at what I do, not bad with a chainsaw and I have plans. For a huge wood stove. That would be great for heating a garage. Or even a house. If I took the time to set up some fans
Only thing holding me back is lack of extra money since. Im.paying a good bit for rent. Etc a
Rent is a bitch, for sure. If I were you, I'd move back in with the parents to facilitate building your structure, and save the rent, to boot. It would only be for a while, and totally justifiable.
Oh I live with parents. But I pay them rent. Etc, I try to help out since money is tight. Plus. Paying 5-700 a month is easier. For me than laying 900/a month. Anywhere else here because everything else is stupid expensive
Only thing I don't have is a college degree. So I'm working my butt off to get some land. And a home PAid off by the time I'm 25 then il have 5k max.(grossly overestimating ) A year in bills etc
And. I can make that in 3 months and take the rest of the year off. Or work more and buy toys
Or maybe even ven save up and get a degree
Sound like a good life, I figured once I have everything paid off I can take it easy , get a friend to live with me and split costs. Etc only work half a year max. And still be able to save money
What general area do you live in?
I intend to buy some acres in Washington that borders a park and live off grid. I'm not from /out/, does this kind of stuff get talked about here? Is this going to derail the thread?
Can you feel the wild calling, brother?
I masturbated with soap during my teen years (didn't want to look like a wanker buying/stealing moisturizer at a store) and never had an issue aside from skin drying up and eventually cracking (the soap stung like shit on the cracked skin though)
You can be homeless and a property owner at the same time. You have to have a home to be homeless.
I'm a property owner. I rent that property out to people, live off their rent money, and sleep in my truck.
if i were homeless in an urban area, there's one thing that i would prioritize: having a clean outfit. combine this with a rack pack (a backpack with a T-shaped hole in it against your back) and you will have no problems food-wize. also when stealing it helps being white.
