    Where do you like to sleep?

    Generally I find all the patches of wood, bushes or tall grass and sleep there. My camo blankets and gear make it very easy to remain unseen. Or I just try to find NOT to sleep.

    Longtime lurker, first time poster

    It matters not if you drink or not. Its the number 1 night for the whole area to get together. Great for networking specifically when xanterra fires you for little to no reason and you need a job in gardiner. But this also depends what part of Yellowstone. I was north side.

    Mentally lost? Or finally being found

    Being homeless is a full time job. If you not making money you spending it. No work no food or beer. Start by getting your equipment together and practice how to use them.

    This is not about employment is is about community service and helping those in need. Also about learning and getting experience in permaculture, alternative energy and water purification. Maybe even animal husbandry so when I build my Ecovillage I got more honed skills.
