Okay. So, i see that either no one is willing to help with a place to sleep, or any ither info, we now have to resort to a tent so that we could sleep at night, and be able to get ro our daily lives in the morning. I was wondering is it kegal to sleep on the beach at night, in the bay area. Basically, which beach in the bay area is cool to sleep at night is what i want to know. I need to be able to get to berkeley downtown area everyday though. So, could anyone at least givr me some info on that, if not anything else. Thank yoy so so much in advance. If you feel mire comfortable messaging me, please do

Go to 4th and dwight in berkeley. There are some kooks over there but you can set a tent on the sidewalk and no one will mess with you there and it's fairly hidden.

Don't worry about the flashing yellow light on a vehicle its just a security guard for bayer doing his rounds. He could care less what goes on.

There is no legal beach in the bay area to sleep on. There are two legal places to sleep: The sidewalk (between certain hours) and a shelter. It's not that people just aren't helping you out, it's that you've got pretty high requirements (room for three, one underaged, for two weeks, gotta be able to get to downtown Berkeley), and that you won't find many people on here who actually have money for a place to put people up, much less $2k/month to live in a bay area apartment. You'll have more luck hitting the local churches up than this place, so don't get bitter that we're not able to save your ass.

This shit is getting real, under self isolation - no, it's self quarantine now - thanks to some jerk who came to the Plant knowingly sick.
He has judged himself, as for me... my locker has been emptied because I am not putting up with that bullshit.
Looks like I just decided to take an early retirement, so on to greener pastures I go......
Be safe out there, perhaps we'll meet again when times are better.
I hope that y'all are good and safe wherever you may happen to be. Take care of yourselves, may the wind always be at your back <3

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!

Beautiful day to be alive and listen to the birds chirp, remembering to be grateful for what we have and not worry about what we have not.
Healthy in PDX. Back here after years to keep track of those bugging out and to check in on those still on the road.
