    Yep. It's the woodland camo US one. Was using a combo of a canvas sleeping bag cover and shitty emergency bivy before - which fair enough, it did keep me dry through the start of a downpour, but after 40 mins water was starting to come through the first layer. Supposedly the military issue one...

    Experiences flying a sign in Flagstaff

    In my experience your success-rate flying a sign is totally random. "Beer" has been the most useful sign I use, even though at this point I'm not spending every dime I get on beer so it's kinda a lie but what ever. Even more paradoxically it seems like I get more drops if I have a visible tall...

    News & Blogs Voluntarily vagrant, homeless youth a 'crusty' urban challenge

    Follows the same template of every other article written about crusties; panhandling, drugs, dogs, side-walk sitting, places trying to criminalize being poor - musta been a slow day for this particular journo.

    Ontario To Vancouver/Tofino

    Hey man c'mon, Brave Dave's video was pretty good. good luck though I'd just like to add: Try to go into it humble. There's a helluva learning curve especially if you're planning to go full-time.

    Fredericton, my second favorite place (was there a few weeks ago!). I'm in Alberta and going west on Tuesday, will be in the AB/BC regions till late summer early fall.

    Lying about what you're spanging for is blasphemy?

    It's amazing how a little cardboard sign can offend some people so deeply and how it's assumed spangers are getting filthy rich "cheating the system". Insecure wage slaves thrown off by a glitch in liberal society. RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!

    Herbal Medicine

    I always have some Kratom on me. You're probably familiar but it's an mu-opiod agonist and basically acts as any regular opiate minus the destructive properties. It's a godsend when my muscles are aching or my ass is sore from sitting on concrete all day - the pain just disappears.

    Library Down & Out in Paris and London

    This and Homage to Catalonia are my favorite books by Orwell. I lost my copy of Down and Out in a big hippie bus while hitchhiking and wasn't even mad, seemed fitting.

    What Do You Sleep in?

    What I'm using now; -5 sleeping bag, canvas sleeping bag cover, and lightweight emergency bivy. In the winter I had a snugpak hooped bivy and it was sick, but I unfortunately lose all my shit quite often so... it's gone. I'm planning to get a 1 man tent and adding a sleeping pad.

    Spange Canada?

    I'm currently traveling through Canada(in Toronto, off to Montreal in a couple days). I must suck at spanging because I rarely make $50 flying a sign, but I get a ton of weed and food. Cops never bothered me, one even got me a voucher for a hotel room, bus ticket, and meal - it was dope.

    anarchism and justice

    @oak moth From my view there seems to be a great backlash against moral crusading occurring within the anarchist diaspora, which I myself am a participant in. Obviously anarchist activity and culture is wide ranging and extensive, and undoubtedly the militant-chique "radical as fuck" crowd is...

    anarchism and justice

    "No justice, just us, comrades united." No idea where I saw/heard that from, but I think it's a concise enough sentiment. Personally, coming from a utopian pov, the concept of justice is negated in an idealized fraternity founded upon the basis of solidarity and autonomy for the individual...

    Stranded as fuck in EL CENTRO

    @Matt Derrick magical response, so, "what he said." Furthermore, it astounds me how far reaching the ethos of ownership is. My mind can't comprehend how "I got mine" could penetrate into a predominantly homeless culture; this is both crude entitlement—ironic—and pitiful gatekeeping.

    Nihilist. I have a hard time grasping the concept of "value" period. I don't recognize inherent or ontological meaning in any sense as the strands of thought that expound upon its existence and importance are as varied and conflicting as rival religious factions. That's not to say I wallow in...

    Lonely Anarchist

    In my case, as a fellow working class anarchist, I've purely given up on the idea of being "upwardly mobile" in the sense that I can't see myself sacrificing my spirit to wage slavery long enough to gather the necessary rubles. My own radicalism is in a cartoonish fervency now. I simply won't...

    Tent, tarp or bivvy sac?

    I'd just go with a waterproof tarp and wrap up in that bitch. Also if it's not exactly a heavy rain but enough to make you uncomfortable, string up that bitch or make a leanto, sit on your mat and enjoy a beer whilst pondering the mysteries of the universe.
