  • I thought about this, but how to stay warm in winter?  And where to park so as not to attract attention?

  • You'll note the guy lives in California -- which means that during the WINTER it's only 50 or 60 (I'm guessing here).

    I know they have the 'ocean effect' big time, and that's why everyone wants to live there. You don't need much in the way of heating/cooling.

    Texas also has a milder winter, but it probably gets colder (at night, during the winter) here, and it certainly gets hotter during the summer.

  • Yeah, how does one stay warm in the winter?

    This guy lives in LA doesn't he?  Its warm there always, but what about us who live in a part of the country that has different weather year round?

    And what does one do about mail?

    It may be a money saver, but I'd be too twitchy about tickets.

  • I see the larger point, I think, but it's hardly a minor detail that this guy is breaking the law.  We have a moral obligation to obey just laws.

    I live in Los Angeles. I've slept in a car (not a truck) on many occassions. Even though it gets 50 -55 degrees at night, because the car is made of metal it gets freezing inside the car. In the spring and summer time, in the morning, it gets very hot inside when the sun has been up for a couple of hours (once again, because the car is made of metal, it gets really hot inside very quickly. It is no picknick. Of course, he is sleeping in a truck so he has room to stretch out his legs. If you are sleeping in a car, you must sleep on one side in a fetal position. It is very uncomfortable. I give this man props for having survived this long sleeping in a truck.

  • Why is it illegal to sleep in one's vehicle? That is an unjust law!

  • I was thinking the same thing --

    What if someone can't afford a house or apartment? Do they have to sleep on the street?

    I would think as long as trespassing laws weren't being broken... (parking outside someone's house, in a commercial parking lot after hours, on private property, etc.)
