Wandering nomadic spiritual junk
    #7520589 - 10/15/07 08:29 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Have any of you ever experienced or thought about experiencing homelessness?

I was backpacking/hitchhiking this summer back from a festival, it took me about 3 days. I camped in people's back yards and in the forest up on a hill. It was a totally liberating experience, I have never felt that kind of freedom. And remembering it just makes me wanna experience homelessness. I may just try it next spring/summer.

Anybody have similar thoughts?

I've spent a couple summers homeless and doing the travelling around and crashing at collective houses or in the woods thing. It was really good for me one year, ok for me the next... but always shit in september when I got back to town and had to crash for a month before finding a home and a source of income. I'm not really into the pattern anymore, but it is a source of confidence to know that I know how to survive on zero money if I have to.

I think I would enjoy homelessness. I've thought it might be useful for me to get that kind of total freedom before settling down for a life of responsibility

going through winter and suffering from the intense cold (at least here in Canada) could be beneficial as well, then the blossoming of summer could be a completely new and liberating experience on it's own.

Yes you could put it that way. I haven't recieved a paycheck in over twenty years. My socialsecurity isn't paid off so I'm not eligable to be locked up by the system that feeds on that sort of thing. I bum from my friends.

Put it this way: For the last 30 years I've been a sidekick. I work but I don't demand a paycheck.

(Edit: more like 23 years)

I have to work like 3 months to be eligable for social security and then I plan to move to North Africa where I can have a West Coast climate at an East Coast price.

it would be perfect to be homeless in a town that has a Labor Ready (Kelowna BC is where this may go down).  if you run out of food or supplies, work for a day make 70 bucks and your good for a week or two! :thumbup:

use library for computer/laptop/internet.  when winter comes, rent a room in a house and make just enough money to survive.

I'm definitely excited about this.



look like a nice place to live homeless? :hippie:

good fishing, eh?

Anyone been out to the Queen Charlotte islands? Is the weather less rainy out there? Is it mostly swamp?

"There are no fast-food restaurants in the Queen Charlotte Islands"

Is this indicative of some philosophical perspective?

I have spent many weeks and months alone in wilderness areas (especially high desert). I took survival classes and really got into the whole thingy. It was some of the best time I have ever spent. Amazing things happen when you are alone for more then a week at a time. Try it.

Also it naturally stimulates recapitulation of ones whole life and many memories long repressed or forgotten naturally emerge as if just waiting for the flow to reverse. We usually have so much garbage etc. flowing into our consciousness that the process almost never reverses and flows back out for review. Many gems are lost.

Warning: Kelowna is a redneck shithole! It's an ugly, sprawling wasteland full of Hell's Angels and way too much cocaine. If you really wanna go to the deserty interior region try Kamloops instead, it's a bit smaller and there's some good folks out that way.
