So I’m about to move to Nashville, TN to work a job and I’m going to need a place to camp. I can get around on bike/bus, but I still need somewhere to stash my stuff during the day and sleep at night.

Anybody have any advice?

You could try asking the job site if you can camp near the location, it would be in their best interest to have you nearby and not having to rely on the bus to be on time...

If they say no, then your best bet would to arrive a few days early and just start scoping out places. Go to the camping stores and ask people, just start asking people if you can crash in their backyard or know a good place to stealth camp.

Depends on where your work is, what part of Nashville, TN. Looking on google maps, trying to spot nearby secluded/somewhat secluded areas, forest, parks... ect.. may be helpful.

Theres Radnor Lake state park, some grassy, perhaps secluded areas along Cumberland river, near shelby bottoms nature center & greenway, Bordeaux garden park, some more treeish area near Mount Olivet funeral home & cemetery, some more near Mill creek and Raymond heights.. it goes on.. never been there though so you'd need to suss em spots out, thats just a quick peep on google maps via satellite image.

Yea I’ve found a few hopeful spots that way that I’ll scope out more thoroughly once I’m there. I’ll be in the more southeast region.

Lived in Nashville the last year in my van. It’s super easy to do if you have a vehicle. But camping is a little more difficult. Radnor or you can check out the Percy priest area. There are some secluded areas no one really checks but just make sure you’re not somewhere patrolled.

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
    $70.00 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

    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
    $70.00 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.
