Best not take a snooze in a Rest Area!
And boy do we have a lot of homeless people. One wonders where people are supposed to live after being dis-possessed by housing greed. Never thought society would become so callous, I guess I was wrong.I see it's to keep homeless from setting up camps, we have the same problems in Canada. The questionable thing is about making it a felony offence.
I really don't want to get started, but we have an adequate supply and many are veterans. In the interim, we are paying for hotel rooms for illegal aliens.
I think most of these nomads have everything the own in their vehicles and don't have sources of income like houses to rent etc. Most are probably living on pensions, disability or their savings. Some get by by doing temporary work here and there - have you seen the movie "Nomadland"?Maybe commune living will make a comeback? The traditional single family home, owned or rented, is so out of reach for so many people, I feel really bad for them. I could see people setting up communes and living together that way under a set of community rules. How much would it cost to maintain a girl and boy bunkhouse, a common living area and kitchen, and a single vehicle for everyday transportation. Throw in a good size garden and share the expenses and I think people could live pretty comfortably for not a lot of money per person.
I look forward to someday living full time in the GMC with my wife and a dog, squatting for short stays in the driveways and fields of family and friends. To help pay for that, I'm also considering renting out our house, why not? Currently, that's about 2000 to 2500 a month in my area to rent a house, taxes are about 500 a month. If the rent could offset about 1000 a month in fuel for the RV that would be a huge contribution to a nomadic lifestyle.

I think that painted a fairly accurate picture of the lifestyle a year or two ago, although I'm sure a lot of nomads have it a lot worse given all the price hikes these days.
