Parking question... (1 Viewer)

I'm in a situation. I live in my truck camper. Just got to a new city. I've never been to this state before. I don't know anybody, and I don't want to sell my truck. The problem is, I don't have any money, and my insurance expires in a couple weeks...

Does anybody have ideas on where to park a truck where it won't get towed???

I'm going to fly a sign and see if I can get gas/insurance money...

But if all else fails, and I need to park my truck long term... Is there anywhere you can just abandoned a vehicle for a couple months.

Not a permanent solution but if you are going to be living in it and not abandoning it you could ask permission to park in the corner of a church or non-profits lot. They are more likely to understand your situation.
In general, try and get permission to leave it on someone's property. Even if you found free public or street parking, expired tags/reg opens up the possibility of tickets and/or tow.
Good luck

I could probably give you an idea atleast if I knew where you are. Big city, north/south, busy/quiet? Why can you not just live out of it? If you go that route and keep and eye on it I would suggest rotating walmarts for a few days each. Is it alright looking or does it look like junk?

The issue of parking a vehicle with bad tags, it will be seen. Either get enough money to get it tagged, or find a safe spot, like someone's land or a garage. If it's someone's land, cover it up with a cover.

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.
