    I've worked and made sacrifices to get myself into a position that no matter what happens, I will always have a roof over my head. I've come too close to being homeless for it to hold any appeal.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Campgrounds?
    Beach showers?

    Those all seem like relatively cheap options.

    I'm sure I'll think of some more.
    Brilliant. I just hope it is worth it during the winter.

    the only way i'd ever consider it is if i were still working and i were childless and the end goal was to save all the money i made for a 6mo or a year and use it to pay off debt and/or use for a really large down payment for a house.

    but to be broke and cold and without a kitchen or soft bed...for the "experience" not so much.

    but i can understand the need to do whatever it takes to find yourself and your happiness. to get clear and find direction so i wish you the best!

    Just keep in mind that being homeless is much more expensive than you think. This article outlines some challenges you might face (and this guy also had a car, so it will be kind of similar):
    http://www.cracked.com/article_20720...-homeless.html

    But if it seems doable, it might not be a terrible thing.

    For a while, I actually dreamed of doing something like that. I guess I was very unhappy with my life and felt trapped, and it seemed like something that might alleviate some of the pressures I was buckling under.

    I'm in a different place in my life now, and, although I'm just as unhappy (possibly even more so), the things that are making me miserable now wouldn't be alleviated by homelessness, and it would definitely make my life suck in other ways, in which it doesn't suck now. So, at this point, voluntary homelessness no longer sounds tempting. But I do understand how it can be.
    And that's my two cents on the subject.

    I was kinda homeless for a couple months last year and it was really horrible. I'm lucky enough that I always had somewhere to stay, between friends' houses and this shitty crackhead motel. Maybe because it wasn't by choice, but it didnt feel like an adventure at all and the lack of stability really stressed me out.
