Will I aien't got nothing aganist camping but clean up after yourselves, make sure the fires out if you gotta scrap bury it. If you gotta pee find a bush Camp in different spots don't change your clothing in public if your going to party find an isoliated spot where your not bothering others in case you might be rowdy or crazy like me you don't want to get arrested if you can help it. It's aganist the law to drink in public for all of us..I know people that have been houseless a long time the cops hardly ever bother them because they follow the rules, We all have to follow those rules. It's Simple..

If I was homeless right now I would find someone that needed their business cleaned and try to make a deal either sleeping inside or outside of that proptery. If I had a vehicle I would hit every construction site in the area and offer a trade Security for a space to park and sleep. Thing is you gotta be responsble you can't party till you get your own place..I have done it before I slept in a hair salon for 3 and a half years cleaned it every night scrubbed the floor waxed it every week I had a bunch of jobs in that hood made more money homeless than any regular gig I ever had in S.B. If there was no where to go I'd find others and camp with them but you really have to be careful of who you trust that is really the hard part..

Yea but isn't this America I remember when I was younger I had to work and pay taxes this is until my cheap boss cut corners on a job and I got hurt on the job and then he fired me when I was trying to get well.. He could afford to live here he had a big house in Montecito so well I can afford to live here too....If you guys don't like poor people you can always move to a place more suited to your needs.....
