Well, i've fell on some hard times - I have to move out of my place, and I don't really have anywhere I can go at the time, i'm a bit broke.
I have an aunt with about 20 acres, in a nice neighborhood just out of town, its totally enshrouded in woods and private, yet only about 10 minutes or
so from a main intersection. Anyway, my aunt told me, I can use the land (sleep there) but I can't come inside or anything (for the most part). So
basically, beginning monday, i'll be there- im planning to get a tent so I'll have some kind of shelter. Also, I can run an extension cord from the
garage to the outside, so I'll have some kind of power. I live on the gulf coast, not the coldest place around, but still, it gets plenty cold here,
and now's the time it starts happening... I should only have to do this about a month - I'm about to go back to work for a friend of mine, and my
girlfriend said she's gonna save a little back from a few paychecks, and I can use that combined with the money I'll make working for my friend, to
get a place in a month or so.
Anyone have any tips or advice on this? A month isn't too bad. I'm no stranger to rough times, so I should make it through this ok, but i've not
had to do this before.
My aunt may seem mean for not letting me stay inside, but i'd rather be there in the woods in private and suffer a little discomfort, than to
wander/drive around town aimlessly and sleep in my car in some walmart parking lot, or some homeless shelter...
