Just thought I’d share this. It’s how to live in a van in the city.

I’ve been in a not quite as bad but similar situation since February 2013 as an over the road truck driver. Saved a ton on rent (more money for buying bullion and investing).

Be careful with those unvented propane heaters.

When I was young I did the van thing, ummm yeah "When I was young," so I know all about it. Used to wash up in gas stations and rent a motel once a week and eat like a king once a week. Saved bank and rented and then went broke again.....man it was tuff to live on $2.50 an hour back then even if it only cost $20 a week to eat at Denney's and BurgerKing. Come to think of it them were the days I was smoking two oz's a week of Columbian read hair at $45 an oz'r.....yeah so yah, don't miss it.

Curious tail about that van....was rumbling though Sacramento and a guy pulls along side me and yells "I know where you can get a door for your van." And, I yelled back "I'll sell it to you for $50."

We pulled off the freeway I signature the title stuffed my seabag and off I went, caught a freight train.
