My home life... Isn't that great. I have to sleep outside sometimes and it's so cold and rainyI need some shelter. I live in California Bay Area. It's very hilly and there are a lot of trees. I can't buy or get access to a tent. I have trees, a few tarps, some blankets. What kind of shelter can I make? Pic not where I live but general idea of area
I live in Tracy.
You can make a basic A frame with your tarps, and hopefully you can find some place better than the outdoors to be at night.
I was homeless in the east bay for a long time. My advice is to make your way to Berkeley. There's more help, more homeless so you won't get singled out and there's jobs and a community college.
first things first you need something to put between you and the ground otherwise it will take a lot of blankets to keep the cold down. something made out of rubber by preference.
or maybe take a look at the hammock camping thread for ideas.
I'm not homeless, but I'm probably gonna spend a few weeks outside not by choice and I prefer not to be in rain. I'm still in school and I don't have any friends to crash with and if I asked they'd probably tell the school
Crusties, edgy young loafers seeking to enhance their bohemian image, have increased in the past 2 decades, and are as cancerous as techbros
I'm not sure who I hate more, but the techbros are not middle class
I actually to to BCC. We don't need anymore of them here but I'm advising him to come here and get back on his feet. OP, I could get you a job in SF like right now. Wont be great but it's work.
