Long story short, I'm waiting out the colder months, wishing I had cold gear to get up to Portland. Totally broke, and no real way to make money other than sign flying, or god help me if I could get an under the table job. Was in the Bay for a minute, but had to get out. Crazy story. Religiously motivated homophobic homebums. 5 of them. Made a pact to fuck me up. I got out, knee's somewhat fucked up but healing. This place sucks, as you know. Waaaaaay more homeless here than 3 years ago. Lotsa tweakers. Homeless meals all expect you to ditch you're pack outside the dining room while you eat. That shit makes me blow up. Never met Flood, but at least he's retired now. ANYWAY, if anyone got any tips for me in this town, that'd be cool. Not for catching out, I mean for bumming it while I wait out the cold. Or is there somewhere close by I should hitch to? Never been to Sac -for any amount of time, anyway. Any advice appreciated. This is just a shot in the dark.
