    Santa Barbara, CA

    I just moved from up that way. State street is very popular for travelers, homeless, and annoying college kids. As far as sleeping on the beach in Santa Barbara I’m unsure if the cops will kick you off. There is a good spot for beach sleeping in Carpinteria. That is also a nice little community...

    Slab city facts

    Long Beach, CA

    I'm thinking of trying my luck at hopping for a week. I know I can come back here but my step dad hates me and I feel like I've let my family down more and more over the last year. I need to find a good place to catch out and maybe some good people. Thanks spider.
