Hey guys I'm in Covina (LA/SGV area) for the night and I can't find a spot to park overnight anywhere out here, I have to line up at the DMV at 5am so I really dont want to have to travel outside of Covina/West Covina.
Anyone know about this area?

Try stealth parking somewhere in the back of the lot by a tree.

Places like libraries may have a yellow "Safe Place" sign which I think makes it okay to stay there. I know I did at one in my area for waaaaaay too long. Never had a single problem. Many other car dwellers parked openly there daily too. Hope that helps. peace

That specifically is relating to dropping off newborn babies/small children that parents abandon. Also a place for victims of domestic violence to find shelter.

I wouldnt rely on that alone to make a place cool to camp. If anything, it means there will be more police presence than other places.

Thanks all, but that area is just not friendly towards people sleeping in their vehicles. I ended up just finding a random street and uncomfortably sleeping UNDER my damn cot for 4 hours and left. Found a way better area to chill in, so if anybody is near Carlsbad area and wants 2 kick it hmu. I know like 2 ppl out here and would love to make some more friends around here.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
