“...or sleeping in cars in public spaces.”
god knows, I’ve done that a few times over the years. Not because I was homeless - but because I was travelling, got tired and thought I’d go the cheap route by sleeping in the car.
I’d pull off in a town somewhere and look for a Wal-Mart parking lot. I’d park far enough away so that I wouldn’t be disturbed but to any people driving by, they’d think it was just a parked car with no one in it.
I couldn’t imagine living in my car but in a worst case situation, I’d make it work.
Arkansas was hot and muggy as we pulled
off the interstate that night, and rolled
the windows down to sleep.
And hour later, there were enough
mosquitoes in the car to lift it
off the ground, it they chose.
We drove on to a motel. LOL
Thanks for telling my story.
Given my druthers, I’d rather sleep at a truck stop. It’s expected there.
