Camping

11:04am:
No RV parking
Here in San Diego, after the downturn of 2007 hit, the city passed regulations forbidding RV parking on the street. Residents are not inclined to share their neighborhood with street people.

Where are the people who are sliding down the economic ladder going to live when the giant economic reversal hits? And how will the City of San Diego handle many more 1000s of RVs and homeless coming here?

    Buy them a one way ticket to The Slabs?

  2. Where are they going to live?
    Not in an RV in San Diego, I'd imagine the vehicles would be impounded.
    Then those folks could join the rest sleeping downtown in a tent.

  3. On CNN news tonight, I noted that in Orange County, California there is a "sweep" in progress for people living on the streets. Money has been made available to put them up in hotels and apartments for a month. My question is what happens after that? When interviewed, some have said they don't want to go to a hotel or apartment; they want to stay where they are. And said, if they wanted a roof over their head, they would stay with relatives.

  4. Sorry, but not in my neighborhood. Unfortunately it's the 1/3 that doesn't care that ruin it for the 2/3rd's that do care. People like George would be more than welcome for a short stay, and interesting to past the day with. But how do you know?

    1. Personally, I don't consider George a street person. He has a roof over his head and has cooking facilities and hygiene facilities available to him. In addition, he moves rapidly from place to place with no need to stay in one place very long.

    2. P.S. The sweep was concerning people who were "literally" living on the streets. Nothing was said about RVs.

    3. I was referring to people living in their rv's on the street, exactly what George is doing. He does it by choice, but many have no choice.

  5. That's pretty much happening EVERYWHERE. Fortunately, 1000 Trails provides a loophole of dirt cheap camping nationwide with full hookups in mostly beautiful, huge tracts of land...

  6. I have lived in present neighborhood for 30 years. Always has been no night street parking.

    It keeps the crime rate down.

    1. Real crimes are committed by corporate greed not the one taking a loaf of bread because of hunger. Just a thought.

  7. Yes some folks ruin it for other folks to park and sleep. I live across the street from a neighborhood park. It was once a nice, beautiful clean park with lots of flowers and trees. Not anymore. Transients have trashed the park with garbage, bottles, cans, toilet paper, left over food boxes with half eaten food in them. They've broken park lights so they can sleep in darkness near the once beautiful flower beds and shrubs and destroyed them. They've broken playground equipment, picnic tables, benches and turned trash containers into fire pits. We even find needles, tampons, dirty clothing etc. The north end of the park is a grade school and kids walk by the park to get to school. Now the neighborhood has gotten together to clean up the park and made it safer for children to walk alone to school. I've joined the neighborhood watch along with the rest of my neighbors. At night we have a park ranger or city police do a patrol around the park after it closes at 10 p.m. Crime has decreased in our hood since we took action to stop sleeping in park and in our neighborhood.

  8. I feel badly hearing about no parking, because if I drive there, I need somewhere to park and sleep. Sigh... Thank you, George. Blessings, Lynn
