One tip I got about residential-city camping was to choose a neighborhood that had both really well manicured lawns/gardens AND bars on the windows. Meaning, the neighbors care a great deal about their environment but everyone is also "on guard".

I only chose one neighborhood in Los Angeles like this and kept it as my alternate spot, meaning I used it irregularly when my regular spots felt off or got blown up.

This is an awesome video about the inner workings of rubber tramping. Making your vehicle blend in with the environment seems key in making it work long term and I love the tips about hard hat and random work documents on the dash.

Good video....7 years never had a knock... maybe just lucky.... I look exactly like what I am doing. Where you park is a key. Avoid cities like San Diego where enforcement is rough and hang-out on BLM in the boonies. I don't work so I can do that. Act like a tourist on vacation...

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    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
    $20.00 of $75.00
    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
    $20.00 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
    $20.00 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.
