I have joined the YMCA. I had been going there and asking if I could just take a shower. Most of the time they said yes without a problem, sometimes they would say no and I’d have to ask for a manager. Now that I’ve joined I don’t have to ask anymore. They provide financial assistance to low income people. It would have been $99 to join and $51 a month. They waived the fee to join and I only had to pay a total of $76 for a 6 month membership, which comes out to $12.33 a month. I plan on going there to swim in the heated pool and to climb their rock wall.
Plastic containers are the best to store most things in. You can get big ones, small ones, ones in all sorts of shapes. They can be stackable. Also those self assemble plastic slide out buckets are very useful. I store some clothes in vacuum seal bags. Zip Lock bags are pretty useful too. I use heaps to store all sorts of things. They keep the moisture out of things too. One big thing I do to save in space is to remove extra packaging. Almost all boxed food stuffs come in a plastic bag within the box. You don't need that box. It is extra weight and takes up extra space. It is best to throw it out at the shop you brought it at. If needed, use a marker to write what is in the bags.
4. Do not play music, talk or do anything loud in your vehicle. Get a cheap sleeping bag or nicer one if you have one already, climb in it in the farthest back space available in your vehicle, put a hat on if it’s cold, gloves, also, and take some melatonin to sleep. I rarely ever can sleep without it. Do not move around alot or rock the car, be still. Set your alarm, cell phone if you have one, or just be ready to wake early. In my mini-van, I’m concealed with the tinted glass more then you would be in a car, so I generally can sleep longer. If you’re in a car or other more visible vehicle, leave early. I would say 5:30, so no one notices you. You can always nap in your car later, when your not working. During daylight hours I think it’s fine to sleep parked in a McDonalds parking lot or other less conspicuous place and nod off a few hours. If someone wakes you, simply say that you’re working a 12 hour shift and trying to get an hour of sleep in between. Most people will leave you alone. People get more concerned at night, about burglary and theft.
Anaheim, that is a good question, I am a Paralegal, and I will answer as best I can. First, it depends on the state, city you live in, some have ordinances that would restrict this. Second, there is a difference between napping and living in a vehicle. This is illegal if there is an ordinance against it, or if you are on property that forbids it. Although this is an ordinance violation, if you are ticketed, your vehicle can be towed if they find you have come back to the same local. This is called reasonable means, which is simply another way of saying, either you obey the ordinance, or we will take the means to prevent this from happening. Sad huh?
soon i will be setting off on my own liveing in a car adventure. i live in wisconsin and my fiance is going to college in southern wisconsin so im following her down there i dont have a job currently but have a little money saved up for things ill really need i allready have a bunch of dry food (cereal is a life saver) i love the idea of getting a gym membership cuz i am a bigger guy and i could use a little excersise i hopefully wont be liveing out of my van (all seats are removed) for too long im guessing a month maybe two at the most but ill do it as long as i have too. so i thank you all for your great ideas and life lessons and respect every last one of you that have gone or is still going through this you are awsome peopls
Some suggestions of other places to sleep at night: Apartment parking lots, condo guest spots, hotel lots, 24 hour grocery parking lots, place of employment, 24 hour fitness locations, rest stops, restaurants (Dennys), Night Clubs and a new one—-nudist clubs. You can actually crash out inside nudist clubs. Memberships are not too pricey either. Take care! Write back about your status. Love to hear from you.
Keep in mind that even in the cold, you will need some ventilation in your car. When sleeping in your car, you will exhale moist air which can get into everything, especially your bedding. It can be very hard to balance the amount of ventilation needed verses trying to keep the air in the car warm. I have found it is really not possible to keep the air in a car or van that warm unless you are hooked up to an external power line and have an electric heater, You are better off rugging up, using a good amount of bedding, a hot water bottle and wearing head cover such as a woolen beanie. A beanie does keep a lot of heat in and makes living and sleeping in a car a lot easier during the cold.
Another idea: during the day, when my cat would sleep, I would put him in a large solid plastic carrier with bedding in the shade, right next to the car, which car he was very comfortable with and thought of as safety, and chain-lock the carrier to my car, attaching the chain to some place in the tire well I think. It was a quiet place that I parked, little commotion. Not hot. He did not need food or litter box, because that was his sleep time. And you can put a blanket over the carrier to keep warmth in. I have also done this when I was fostering kittens. A large cage with blankets all over, because it was cold out, and with supplies (toys, food, water and a litter box). Then I would come back in a few hours if there ware no supplies or later that evening if they had supplies. Kittens are such fun!
So even though I ask people, the hated and abuse of the poor, as a system, makes it futile. Months later, they lie right back in my face. After allowing me for months, suddenly some boss or officer or security person comes up with the ton of shit suddenly in my face. They act like they are infallible truthbearers, their good professional looking business friends CANNOT LIE!. I have had this happen about internet use and public payphone use and public bathroom use!

Yes, I am in a similar situation. I was laid off twice. I live in the east and am leaving for a job out west which starts in June. I will be living in my car till I find someplace to live starting on Memorial DAy. My biggest fear is having my SUV impounded. Does anyone have any suggestions on what works to tell the police. I will have out of state plates so it may work if I say I have been traveling and am a bit tired from the journey. Any suggestions?
Decreased levels of malonyl-CoA provide a plausible mechanism for this increase. Production of malonyl-CoA by ACC1 and ACC2 initiates lipogenesis, and strongly suppresses the opposing β-oxidation pathway by allosteric inhibition of CPT-1 enzymatic activity, which decreases fatty acid transport into mitochondria. Decreasing activity of ACC1 and particularly ACC2 has beneficial effects on both hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance (31), and very similar effects are achieved by overexpression of malonyl CoA decarboxylase (32). CAR activation significantly represses both ACC1 and ACC2 expression, strongly suggesting that CAR induces β-oxidation by decreasing malonyl CoA levels. Recent studies have shown that SCD-1 ablation protects against hepatic steatosis by the combined effects of decreased lipogenesis and increased β-oxidation (33). Hence, reduced SCD-1 expression by CAR activation may also contribute to this induced β-oxidation.

It may seem odd to list hygiene as the fourth concern you should focus on. But, it’s hard to keep yourself clean in your vehicle and disorganization, smell, and general dishevelment is a dead give-away that you’re living in your car, which you want to avoid at all costs. Having bad hygiene will also be a serious draw on your mental health, which you need to keep stable in an emergency situation especially.

Keep an eye out for community college athletic field houses—they don't always check IDs, and can be a good free shower option. Check their fee schedule—sometimes you can take a single class for a nominal price, thus becoming a legitimate member of the college community, with access to their gym, library, WiFi, employment office and other resources (in addition to learning something).
You’re prob a republican who doesn’t “believe” in this, but your situation is exactly what we liberals try to fight to help people for. Republicans would just say “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” where we would provide a safety net for people in your situation just like every other civilized country does. If you’re a republican, I don’t feel sorry for you because you’ve voted against your own best interests. Our society should step in and help people like you. Ironically the same a holes who would leave u in the streets, are so called “Christians”. Jesus would help you if he was alive today and the same a holes would probably stone bith if you and leave you by the side of the road to die, if they could. That’s how heartless republicans are and they call themselves Christians.
I am currently living out of my car now. It’s not a truck; it’s a 2-door sports car, with almost everything I own in it. Luckily, I too, live in California, and sleep on the beach at night, when the cops don’t wake me up @ 1 am telling me to leave. When they do, i’m forced to sleep in it. I make it work. Hopefully i’ll get out of this rut by winter. Clifornia or not it gets **** cold out here!

hey you sound like you no how to do things being homeless, i ben homeless for the better part of this summer and right now im living in my truck with some bare essentials in the back and a bed frame in the bed but i sleep inside the cabin and no job except scrapping metal and finding money in parking lot anyway i ben sleeping at apts, walmarts, trcuk stops, rest areas, hotels but am running out of places to stay and getting low on money any suggestions? thanks

There are several sites online that can tell you where to stay, cost and time limits. Just search RV parks in the area you are looking for. most of them cost about 45 a day but if you stay for a month you can pay as little as $350 a month. If you find a resort that needs help, and there a lot of them, you only have to pay for electricity. You have shower, laundry, swimming, club house and garbage service. These are usually included in the price. You also have internet access. Good look and be safe.
I have thought about seniors helping out seniors. At 66 one is still young compared to seniors who need help. A Foundation sponsored by a group of rich people would pair seniors who need a nice home with seniors who need help (usually after 80 or so – maybe even 90) This way old seniors could stay in their homes instead of moving to Assisted Living or Nursing Homes – Good Grief. The foundation would do the background check and a match-up survey. I have known college students who lived with seniors, but problems arose when the student wanted to stay out all night or go away for a weekend.

Our sleep system involves the Big Agnes Insulated Double Z Pad stuffed inside the Big Agnes Sleeping Giant memory foam topper. Awarded a gold medal from both of our backs, this system means you get four inches of inflatable pad filled with Primaloft for extra warmth, plus an extra inch of ultra-comfy memory foam to drift away to a good night’s sleep. Whichever sleep system you decide on, err on the side of overdoing it rather than skimping to try to prove your minimalism. Your back will thank you later.
If this sort of thing is forced on you, it's absolutely miserable - you have to think about how uncomfortable it is to sleep in a car seat and resolve that with potential back pain every day. Is your employer ok with you living out of your car? It means that you don't have a permanent address and some old-fashioned places that require formal dress may not be alright with your preferred lifestyle (I know it's all well and good to say that they can't "technically" fire you for something like this, but there are always loopholes and they will find a way).

It is also great to read that like myself, there are many people taking a concious descision to live in their cars or vans without beiing forced there by circumstances. It can be quite liberating being out on the road, travelling where you want, and taking your home with you for free. Life is a journey folks. Our anscestors were all nomads, so some of us have to continue the journey. 🙂

Evaluate your food options. Peanut butter, tuna and crackers are great staples. Have a box for food so it does not get smashed. Gallons of water are a necessity for a lot of things. The amount of food you can keep at any one time will be limited by the lack of refrigeration. Fast food is expensive when you're living off it. With old fashioned (large flake) rolled oats, powdered milk, bottled water, plastic cups, and chocolate protein powder, you can ensure that you always have a nutritious snack to fall back on.[12]

Thanks Bob but sleeping during the day would mean sleeping in the summer heat. As it is, I have to wait until the sun goes down before I even think about getting any shut eye. The parking up against bushes in a residential area so that I can role down some of the windows has been my best strategy so far. I highly recommend it. Just try to find some bushes in between houses so that no one thinks that you parking in front of their house!
You get food very hot without running your car. You can get any kind of food very hot in a heat pad ($12) powered by a small inverter ($10). You can get 2-3 cans of food in a regular size heat pad. No going under the hood, exploding cans, melted containers, burnt skin, or waiting for the food to cool. You can use any container in a heat pad and get it very hot. You can take a water tight container, like a good zip lock bag, put food in it and heat it in the heat pad. It takes about 20-25 minutes on high – this should not kill or drain a good large car battery, just make sure that you charge the battery soon after using the battery like this. I use rubber bands to wrap the heat pad all around the container. Of course this requires an inverter. The heat pad is only 50 watts, so the smallest plug-in inverter will work. Heat pads are designed to transfer heat so they get cool or cold VERY fast too, a minute after they are shut off. So wrap the heat pad with the food in a thick sweater, towel, or stuff it under a pillow. It will heat up faster and STAY very warm.

Oddly i am wondering what attracted their attention.I have a low profile vehicle – i mean NO ONE lives in a Prius. did you know a 6foot 4 man can sleep fully stretched out in the back with the front passenger seat pulled fully forward. I use a front windshield sun visor to block the light in the front(which i am guessing is what did it -since it is winter and sun is not an undesirable thing) I also use fabric stretched from the rear hatchback to the sun visor to block out the light on the two sides. I usually back up to a wall or a bush.

The Salvation Army in Fort Lauderdale, FL has security and won’t let you park overnight unless maybe you ask the manager. I volunteer for a fire department, so it’s no problem for me to sleep or hang out. They are a bunch of great people and I’ll bet anything that they will let you use their parking lots wherever you are. Won’t hurt to ask. Firefighters are very laid back and always there to help. Trust me, I am one.
The first night I came into town, I hadn’t prepared, and I just slept on the side of a fairly busy street. I was somewhat nervous about it, because I didn’t have anything to cover the windows, not even the windshields. But as it got lighter, I began to pay attention to the fact that nobody noticed me. Dozens of people walk past, but how often, if nothing seems amiss, do you look in the windows of the cars you pass?
Me I lived out of a campervan for about a year and loved it went to Florida slept right on the beach in Clearwater and traveled all along the coast been to Detroit out west all over,I’ve crashed in minivans cars campers, and I got to say if u plannin on doin it long term go for a cargo van or a old class b, got to say though minvans arnt bad they don’t stick out as much as a big camper but it is a little cramped, right now I got me a old caravan and its just big… Read more »
I lived in my truck for about five years in the 90’s. In Connecticut {where I’m from} I lived all summer until Christmas, then I went down to Texas. I had a pick-up truck. Before you buy your truck, make sure you can stretch out full-length in the back. I put up curtains out of burlap, secured the gate on the cap with a chain.I had a matress, at community centers you can take a shower for a couple of bucks, I worked as a temp and a day laborer.You can sleep in and around college campuses easy because they expect cars with out of state plates and they veiw sleeping in ones car as sophmoric youthful stunt and are tolerant. The key is do loiter after work at the park or where-ever until you want to go to bed, say around 9;30 PM, then you sail into your spot, park, and then get out and take a long moment to make sure no-one is watching, then zoom into the back, tie up the chain, and Presto, another rent free night. You can use a wide-mouth detergent bottle to urinate and I’ve discovered you can defecate into a double plastic shopping bags, you know, one inside the other, and then tie them off, enclose in another bag, repeat. This can be left in any trash-can. I saved alot of money though at the time I also had some behavioral problems and a signifigant drinking problem. All the same, it was a mobile way of life that suited me at the time. Look around the city, its build to be accessed in your vehicle, why not take it a step furthur and just live in the damn thing?

m. temperature control: Staying warm and eating a warm meal morning and evening make all the difference in colder climate winters. Summer heat, on the other hand, is best handled by well ventilated sleeping, cool baths/showers, and good hydration. There are plenty of places to stay cool during the day. n very cold weather you can preheat your sleeping bag with a bottle of hot water. By the time you need a drink, it will have cooled. In warm weather, raise your tarp sides to allow more ventilation and funnel breezes. The colder it is the more you want the tarp to morph into a cocoon shape, closing ends to stop wind or blowing precipitation. Lowering the tarp sides forms an acute angle that minimizes precip build-up on your tarp walls (and less chance for damage by heavy rain/sleet/hail). In a blizzard or heavy snow, you will wake up surprisingly warm as you end up with a lovely insulated igloo effect with natural snow walls on the lower half (at least) of your tarp cocoon. Below your hammock will be pristine ground. In the event of torrential rain, any water will be on the ground and not in your sleeping bag as you would have with tent and ground camping…I once awoke with 12″ of water under me. My feet got wet walking out but I was well above the flash flood water line and awoke dry — just rolled up the pant legs and carried my dry shoes out with me. I keep them in a zipped homemade gear-bag that hangs on the ridge line of my tarp. When car camping, secure a car cover or tarp over you in really bad weather. In addition to insulating and giving better privacy, the covering keeps your car snow/ice free and prepped for rapid travel if needed.
Some suggestions of other places to sleep at night: Apartment parking lots, condo guest spots, hotel lots, 24 hour grocery parking lots, place of employment, 24 hour fitness locations, rest stops, restaurants (Dennys), Night Clubs and a new one—-nudist clubs.

I am in Europe (English person in Luxembourg) and have just read the above posts. Some excellent info there, thanks. I am 14 days away from the same situation except the car is going too. I am considering buying a 500 euro (650US) Ford Fiesta type car, maybe something a little bigger as Renault Megane type cars have a low resale. But insurance etc will be expensive and require an address…. I can earn some money as an English (as a foreign language) teacher but need to look the part; especially for the adult students who tend to work in banks and therefore have higher standards. I also want to keep fit and so will continue to swim and shower by the pool (before entering water and after!). I think shaving and teeth cleaning (English people do you know) will not be accepted by other users so that will be a no-no. This is not like America so a parked car not in a residential street will attract attention, especially if old and cheap. There are homeless people here and a community that drinks beer in the square but I prefer to avoid that (I don’t know where they sleep, altho they are well dressed and so i guess they get clothes from some charity). I have read about US tent cities and that would be great here too but not likely to happenas lack of the outdoors would be a problem (everything/where is private). So my plan B is to live in a small survival tent. This can be carried in a pack (I hope) and if I walk off the track in the woods each evening and put up the tent in a densely treed or ferned area, i should be almost invisible including from above. I am worried that I am living in a fantasy and will freeze to death. In winter, it can be -15 C (5F). This site gives me hope. I hope that all or most of the posts are real.. Anyway, I have been reading about little one man tents and that seems fine. The sleeping bags seem Ok too. I have around 800 dollars in cash and can earn enough to eat / drink / swim but nothing else. I have clothes / books etc and I am not sure what to do with them. Storage sounds good but too expensive (unless i live in it but that seems too difficult to get away with). So nearly everything will have to go although some can go with friends (who i am not telling about this). But I can buy a few things to survive/live. I am 54 and in reasonable shape at 160 pounds. My first question is whether it is feasible to sleep in one of those blizzard survival bags. Are they just a one day thing or could they perhaps go inside or outside my bag? Don’t tell my ex but the thing I will miss most is my two cats. I dream about keeping them in a tent to keep me company and keep my feet warm but sadly that IS a fantasy. So blizzard bags? Anybody tried living without the car or even keep the car, possibly to store some stuff in the boot (trunk) but sleep outside it to avoid police attention. Sorry for the long post but I have little time before I leave the nice flat that I am currently sitting in. Thanks, tim
I picked up a surplus army sleeping system for about a hundred from amazon that is supposed to be good sub zero. Its three parts, gortex shell, lightweight down bag, and a heavy winter down bag. . . see if you can find an extra large one its a litle snug. also I keep reading about a little buddy heater but its gas so ventilation would be a must. Good luck.

if you have a full size SUV, you have more freedom, you can park any where literally, Campervans are nice but you are limited to where and when you stay so to speak. Full size SUV basically camo’s your life style. if you can not afford a full size suv a smaller suv is just as good. If you choose a car, look for a station wagon, if its a sedan look for an older version like a crown victoria. if possible stay away from coupes they are very small. If you can stretch out and stay warm you will be happy for the long haul. stay safe/keep positive.
I have got this down to a science now. I got a storage unit to put my stuff in. I put my laptop on the floor of the passenger seat. I have a small sedan. At bedtime I put two fluffy pillows ontop of the laptop case. I recline the seat back and sleep in it upsidedown! My legs are a bit elevated but I used to sleep this way anyway to rest my sore legs. I do go to sleep early like around 8pm because I work at 7AM. I find the darkness to be my friend. At 8pm I can move my bedding from the trunk to the back seat I have tinted windows so know one can see whats in there. Also I can get my clothes together for the next day work uniform and clothes for after work. these I also keep in three small boxes in the trunk. One for clean undies, sock and bras. the second is for work clothes and the third is for regular clothes. My trunk is pretty full. I wake at around 4AM to got to the gym and workout then shower and off to work.
The first step to ensuring that you’re safe is to be sure people aren’t immediately aware that you are living inside the car. You will have to make your own custom stealth solution depending on what type of vehicle you have, whether your windows are tinted or not, where you park, and whether or not you emit lights from your vehicle. If you drive around in a van with no windows, or a very obvious campervan, you are already at a disadvantage because these vehicles arouse suspicion and people may be more apt to call the cops or disturb you. Keep these considerations in mind if you haven’t chosen a vehicle yet. Some general tips here are helpful:
Keeping your hygiene good is absolutely key to sleeping and living in your car and staying unnoticed. The more you are noticed the worse it is for you. You have to give an appearance you are not homeless. If not, you will be kicked out of a lot of places you may hang out at. I took showers at a gym. I got a monthly gym membership. It was only $40 a month. So it was not much. I got to both work out and get clean. I recommend having a backpack with everything you need for the shower and a combination lock to lock up your stuff while you are in the shower.
Nomadic ways of living have been with humanity for ever in every place. There is a holy people remembered and honored forever in the Old Testament that were nomadic, (other than Moses leading Israel in the desert). Nomadic living is not just for the destitute, the alone (I am alone like yourself), or the mentally disordered. And there is an oppression and distortion about nomadic living in this country like no where else. People act like they have eradicated nomadic living from the modern glorious u.s.a. and there is no reason for it.

Here’s the most important question you need to really ask yourself before undertaking such a life-altering task. It’s also what most people ask when presented with the topic of living out of a vehicle – which makes sense. So, why would you ever want to live out of your car? Well, several really. First off, with rising rents across the country, it’s no wonder more and more people (who are oftentimes employed full-time) opt to live in their cars for an extended period of time. It’s when you consider that places like San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, even Boston, where the average price for a one bedroom apartment ranges between $2K-3.5K a month that the motivation for car living becomes clearer.
That’s a good, thoughtful question, Jean. I have some consumer debt to pay off then my only debt will be student loans. I expect to pay off the consumer debt well before next spring. So, my goal is that by next spring, I will have a new apartment and get my dog back (my family has been keeping him for me in another state). I will recreate my budget with more balance (like saving more for retirement). I may even quit the second job and spend more time developing my teaching materials to sell online, or researching and writing about how to help kids read better.
I hiked a few off-the-beaten-path hikes around the Redwood National Park area. Then, I spent a few more nights sleeping under gigantically-massive trees. The entire time, I couldn’t, for the life of me, fathom the magnitude of these giants. Californians used to live inside the burned-out, hollowed-out Redwoods. I contemplated a night in one of them, but living in my car was just too comfortable. I think my tiny Nissan is one of the best cars to live in.
This isn’t, however, purposed to deter you from giving this sort of nomadic lifestyle a go. And keep in mind, if this isn’t a mandatory life decision, there’s always the option to turn around and go back. And while breakdowns and break-ins are a strong possibility, the life experience you’ll garner through life on the road – however brief – is worth it. So, if there are any final thoughts to consider it’s this: nothing groundbreaking or creatively enticing ever came out of routine. It’s always the risk takers, go-getters, and – for lack of a better word – weirdos who change the world and live lives worth living. Whether or not you want to take that leap is entirely up to you.
Listen, I’m all for contemplative silence every now and then, but you’re going to be spending a lot of time driving – I mean, a LOT of time. And trust me, it’s a lot more fun when you have some jams to sing along to, or a podcast to learn something from, or whatever it is that helps you pass the time. Regardless of what exactly it is, your road trip needs a soundtrack.
Well, my bed is actually made of wood and it’s a flat bed that rides on top of the passenger seat and the back seat, so I do have my legs stretches into the trunk of the car, and it helps, but there’s always a bit missing to the left where the seat ends on the back roll, so I made a short bench of some sort to fill that. My left leg will not be able to stretch out straight unless I move tilted to my right a bit, that’s blocked by the rear wheel thing.
I would like to let you know how apartment owners are ripping off renters. I have always paid my rent, and that was it, unless I paid for electricity, heat and gas. Two years ago, my rental agency decided we have to pay for the water based on the # of residents in the apartment. This month I was told I have to pay garbage removal fee. I am on a fixed income, as everyone is today. I was told to add the extra charges to my rent payment, yet an out of state company bills me for water. I have been a condo owner and a home owner, but apartment rental works best for me. If they keep going up and adding more fees, then I will be living in my paid for van, and cleaning up at a health club. It seems no one cares about the real American people.
SULT2B1 plays an important role in CAR mediated suppression of lipogenic gene expression. (A) Ob/ob and ob/ob CAR−/− mice were treated with TC or corn oil control for 1 month. Liver RNA was extracted and gene expression analyzed by quantitative RT-PCR. Gene names were shown on top of each figure. (n = 4, **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05) (B) Wild-type and SULT2B1 knockout mice were treated with TC or control for 3 days. Liver RNA was extracted and gene expression was assessed by quantitative RT-PCR. Lipogenic gene expressions were compared between WT and SULT2B1 KO groups. (n = 4, **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05)
