How I lived Homeless for 4 years 17/09/18(Mon)23:41 No. 3083 ID: 7617e0

FIRST OFF choose your place to live carefully. This isn't just where to sleep but the city or town to live in.

Find a city or township that has buses. Ride um for a while and see if you can hide some where near by. This can mean an old abandoned building or the forest. I've had bad luck in buildings. It's easy to come home and find your shit gone or someone having stolen your spot.

Honestly the woods are the best. Find a big tree. Hide a rope ladder and it's just like having a tree house. This guy has a great guide on how to make a simple sleeping hut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQe8N--CpB0 Don't build anything visible or complex. You want something you can lay down at night and sleep. Hide it well.

SECOND, never leave your shit laying around. You'll loose it. Carry it with you. When i was begging for money and sucking cock for food money i had one bag. In it was a change of cloths and my tablet. That was it.

MAKING MONEY. This is up to you. Farmers pay okay for a hard day of work under the table. You can beg too and this will make you the most money. You can also sell your self but keep in mind you're gross and smell like shit. And the people that fuck homeless people arn't gonna be the cleanest. Avoid STD by offering blow jobs only. I'm an ugly guy and I was getting 10-20$ a blowjob. Not something I look back on with pride but it feed me those nights.

TECHNOLOGY! Get a cell or tablet. Ask to look at lost and founds. Ask if they found any cell phones or tablets when asked to describe it tell um "Uhh well it was black..." That's how i got my shit acer tablet. Enough to get free wifi in hotspots.

FOOD. Taco bell and mcdonalds are expensive. You wanna keep sucking cock for 10-20$ a pop for the rest of your life? NO! Fucking save your money. There is free food out their. Look up survival and eating off the land guides. Lot of places you can eat fucking weeds. And if your built your sleeping base there your set.

Churches and bazaars or what have you give out free food some times. This is when you use that phone or tablet to join facebook groups. Hell add homeless buddies to message apps.

Not being homeless. SAVE YOUR FUCKING MONEY. They have homeless places all over the place you can get help there.

Personalty I worked under the table for a farmer for 2 years until he gave me a full time job at minimum wage. Enough to get a shit apartment. And BANG! Worst 4 years of my life over with.

Damn, son. I’ll think of this post next time I open my mouth to bitch about how hard I think I have it.

Modern Mom 17/10/13(Fri)01:49 No. 3093 ID: f53802

My protips: wear polyester undershirt, undies, longjohns and polyester dress pnts, leather jacket or polyester windbreaker or blazer, get the Summerweight Ozark trail 40 degree bag from Walmart or other similar supermicro bag, and a messenger bag to put that and your laptop in. Get some dress shoes with a walking sole. Get polyacrylic hiking socks. -homeless four years and counting. Thanks America!
Oh yeah and wear a white silk or polyester dress shirt. White cotton gets grimy instantly, silk looks great for months without washing

More tips

MONEY AND FOOD" Beg out side of fast food places. Keep the money. And if someone accuses you of just buying booze or drugs. Tell him, "Nah man I'm homeless I just want to buy some food and i'll be going." Same mother fucker that just called you a druggy might just buy you some food instead. That fucking works out perfect. No need to buy anything.

STAYING ONLINE. I like my porn, youtube and tv shows. Laptops are okay. But unless you have a good one get a tablet. Easier to carry, less space and the battery life lasts way longer. Plus faster to charge. If you sleep where you got no wifi download your shit. Plus tables can be charged using usb batteries. You can get these at fucking dollar tree. I'd buy 10 of them, a few adapters so i can plus all 10 into a power strip (got all this shit at dollar tree) and then charge them on some outlet i'd find on the street. Power for the tablet for maybe 2 days of constant use.

WASHING If your homeless you're gonna start smelling. Public washrooms are great to clean up.

SAVE YOUR MONEY. Like fuck, do you wanna stay homeless? Getting drunk and high are not gonna help. Quitting drinking and other shit like meth is fucking hard man. Try not to start

MAKE HOMELESS FRIENDS This one you got to be carefull. The guy you're sharing a drink with today might steal or stab you the next. Way too many people on the street with mental problems. But it can fill that need to human companionship. Heck might even get you some sex that enjoyable. We'd both had some tech to talk to each other. So if i found somewhere that was giving away free food I'd message him "James, The church on Boulder drive is having a supper for the homeless, Fucking good food man, come on by." Or I'd get messages from him like "You know that lil donut place downtown? They burned a shit ton of bagels and the lady inside gave um all to me man. Meet me downtown buddy let's eat." This is the best. I mean if you can find a comrade your in good shape.

admit it, you were addicted to some kind of drug. no one of sane mind stays homeless for four years and has to suck dick for FOOD when there's churches, temp agencies, and blood donation centers.

>complaining about muh degeneracy while posting on a chan website

conservative american posters who spout sincere bullshit about sobriety and shit always confused me. Do you think this is some wholesome christian college republican website? Do you think the people who post here aren't degenerate autists and incels who jack-off to hentai? I know very few successful people IRL who post on the chans. Most are either spergs or similarly mentally ill degenerates who either porn addicts, drug addicts, or alcoholics.

You don't know the full story so shut the fuck up and be glad that you didn't have to go through shit like that. Respect to OP for sharing.

With respect someone who stayed homeless for that long must either have done so due to personal preference, drug abuse or disability.

There is a significant difference between an itinerant laborer and a homeless person.
You can work for accommodation and food, the accommodation could be a farmer allowing you to sleep in a barn or set up a tent as this costs them nothing.
Itinerant workers often carry tools if only for show, tell everyone they are passing through on the way to somewhere else and are looking for work.
Lumber yards, brick yards, cement pouring yards- these places have little that can be stolen, the workers are tough to begin with and they may find the prospect of overnight security appealing.

You may find work at night as a concierge in a small hotel/ whore house, you will actually earn decent pay, use the hotels laundry facilities and sleep during the day which is a great deal safer.
Nobody ever wakes up someone in uniform, it's universally assumed that you're just overworked and "I work nights" is a legitimate excuse for falling sleep anywhere.

Many people take jobs that involve travel and so will get accommodation vouchers. Truck drivers, stewards, marine work, primary industry work, cattle, even traveling salesmen.

I would look at jobs that already force people to stay away from home before a non traditional income like pan handling.

Many people do some kind of performing art, huge variety. My favorite are musicians who carry a mouth acordian because these are inexpensive and lightweight.
You get a regular spot that's a respectful distance from a cafe, the trick is playing somewhere people are likely to loiter to begin with, to make eye contact, and get the right balance between being quiet and being close. Ambiance is the key word.
A sticker that says "I love x" (Being the city you are in) will keep you from being moved on.

So rather than sleeping in the woods, just find somewhere it's socially acceptable to sleep and assume the identity of someone nobody would bother.
It wouldn't be stupid to get a McDonald's uniform and change into it to sleep.
People are far less likely to move on, wake up or assault you if you don't look homeless.
This goes even if you're pan handling and dirty yourself for that purpose.

In terms of hygiene, keep your hair short.
It may seem cold when you've got no hat but far warmer when you do.
Use lye ash from burned paper to ward off foot rot, wrap rags around your feet in the Russian manner then wear socks over the rags to keep them together.
If you can't keep the rags washed; better than stink out your shoes.
Wash rags by soaking them in a plastic bag, wrapping one around your knee and rubbing a second against it.
If you can't find water, ask someone to fill up a clear plastic bottle for you, take water from a toilet cistern (not the bowl) or from a fountain or automatic sprinkler system.
Dental hygiene actually isn't so hard, tooth brushes are cheap, inner tree bark or soft wood works just fine, salt water is a universal antiseptic.
You can bathe without water, using either a wet cloth, a rag, sock etc.
Pinch your foreskin when you pee, urine is sterile and it's entirely appropriate to use it on injuries to your feet, ideally though you would use salt water.
Take minor cuts and scrapes seriously and recognize infection is an emergency because it won't get better by itself.
You will have more time than you know what to do with, rather than pace around aimlessly looking for quarters, keep yourself clean.

If you're homeless, make it your mission not to be homeless.
You want to make the world a better place? Do it after.
Don't make being homeless part of who you are, don't accept homelessness.

I've been homeless several times but only briefly and that's why, I stayed clean, didn't take drugs, identified as a worker, got a job, shared accommodation with other workers and came back.

On shoe repair:
This is a very specific issue which actually warrants some coverage.

You can get shoes from thrift shops, begging outside a shoe store can quickly get you a cheap pair of shoes from a guilty shopper.
Shoes are often stolen from stores, but anything you can think of store security have seen a hundred times before. I'm not going to tell you how to shop lift but bear in mind security will be far harder on someone who's not a customer than a customer who also steals.

I generally recommend putting cardboard insoles in your shoes immediately, because you can discard an infinite number of cardboard insoles but washing cheap shoes often damaged them.

To sew shoes there's a very specific techniques.
>rejoining the sole to the top
You need two strips of pliable plastic, ideally thicker than a zip lock bag but thinner than a plastic water bottle- either however is better than nothing.
You will need strong thread, thin wire, or plastic cord.
Electrical cables from junk electronics are perfect, if you split them they are full of these tiny copper wires.
You will need a punch,not a knife. Make one out of a sharpened piece of wire from a fence- finally barbed wire does you a favor.

Sandwich the top of the shoe and the sole together with the plastic strips on the outside.
It doesn't actually matter how large the plastics are, they serve to stop the material ripping and to prevent the string/ wire wearing it down.
Use the punch to make a series of holes right through the bad area into a "good" area.

Now the fidly bit, you have to get two bits of cord, one inside the shoe and a long one outside the shoe.
If you must use several short strings, let the short ones be on the outside.
Push a loop through the bottom of the shoe in the first hole, then thread the second string inside the shoe through the loop, pull both.
The inside string will want to come through but that's not a problem at this stage.
Now push a second loop through the bottom of the second hole, draw the inner string through the second loop, pull tight.
Get the idea? The string on the outside is doing the work, the inside string is just stopping the outside one coming back.
>complete hole
So there's actually part missing from the shoe?
Use the same technique to add a patch.
>no sole
Actually not as bad as it sounds, when you understand this technique you can use anything that you can pierce with a punch as a sole.
Generally you cut a narrow groove for the holes/string to sit in.
I've used plastic bottles,bits of wood, all kinds of shit.
Ideally you'll find the sole from another random shoe, rubber from the base of a junk appliance, but even layers of bark or cloth can do.

Whatever you use, try to waterproof the holes with glue, chewing gum, even wax or grease.
>laces hole torn.
Add a new hole for the string anywhere, you want to find the little metal "o" which which usually still on the laces. You can fashion an "o" from any junk plastic you can melt with a hot piece of metal.
>new laces
Always carry cord.
Failing that electrical wire, vibes, or carefully cut strips of rag twisted together.
Garbage bags often have strong plastic for tying them up at the top.

I've seen shoes made from entirely cobbled together materials, sole from a blown car tyre, top from layers of cloth and plastic from a water bottle, cardboard insole, laces from fence wire.
