I wasn't in a cardboard box but, a metal one. I have lived in cars many times in my life and even adopted a family of kittens who were going to be euthanized. I don't particularly recommend that but, I am proud of it.
Conversely, I have lived in penthouses and swanky pads. At no time in someone's life can it be said that their lot is sussed out and permanent.

Some of my fondest memories were when I lived in my car, living the gypsy lifestyle, driving around the US, Canada and Mexico picking up odd jobs or busking on the streets when I needed money and meeting rich lonely women in need of companionship.
I was astonished to meet many men and women exactly like my self, homeless and traveling from place to place living a Bohemian lifestyle searching for the American dream. Most had a passion they were persueing such as surfing, trout fishing, skiing, sailing, but mainly guitarplayers/singer/songwriters seeking that existential experience to ferment their musical style.
It was a much gentler time back then; I feel blessed to have experienced it!
