I'm moving up to the bay area next week with very limited places to sleep does anyone recommend parks, squats, or hostels to stay in while in the bay? Also i was wondering whats the safest parks to sleep at is Buena Vista safer than Golden Gate Park to sleep at in a sleeping bag with pack?

Sutro Heights Park was good to me when I was there last December; Lands End could probably yield a few spots as well.

you can sleep in golden gate, if you are okay with doing it without a tent. honestly buena vista aint bad, you just gotta find a spot in the undergrowth with a good tarp. stay away from open fields, and during the day in both locations, try to identify sprinklers.
the best place you could go in golden gate is far away from haight street at night. people aint too bad there, but if you dont find a trustworthy crew to sleep beside, who knows what you could wake up to. but generally try to avoid the roads and trails, and watch out for hooligans.

Be mindful of sprinklers, usually in well groomed green grass patches. Definitely had my fair share of being awoken at some point in the night to water being sprayed all over me and my gear.
Never been to the Bay but I know you will find somewhere peaceful to sleep. Enjoy man.

Sending you a PM so I have it in my history - but I'm contacting a friend who hangs in the park and I believe she may be living behind an apartment building - don't know but I will contact her.

I'm currently in East Oakland--unknowingly moved in with a dude who's being fucking evicted soon :( I haven't squatted since I was in Brooklyn in 08-09... But I'm sick of the struggle to find stable housing. I think me and my dog are gonna take to the streets. I'm looking for some folks (preferably other conscious queers & anarchists) to cultivate a tight affinity group with. I'm not a prime candidate to be living outside alone in San Francisco...

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
    $80.00 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
    $80.00 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.
