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.

P.S.
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.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.

I hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
