    Sleeping in big cities

    Everyone knows how much of a bitch it is to find a good hidden place to sleep in larger cities. Well, today I had a genius idea. How about travelling with a couple large trash bags, and when it's time to sleep, you just get inside one, and lay down next to a trash can, with your head sticking...
