>>175501>Man, there's so many stupid ideas about your plan I don't even know where to start… If you have a death wish you might as well say it.
Death is something I expect. It's not what I want, but I understand it's what I will face. If I stay here I will either die among other idiots or perpetuate this shitty existence of working 10 hours a day every day just to meet basic living expenses. At least out there it'll be either I die alone in peace or find a place to live that CRB/Welfare can cover entirely on its own.
>planning on moving to the Canadian prairies to be homeless, in winter
When I say head south I mean to the literal desert at the border. It's colder than Ontario sure but I'm not facing the tundra here. The prairies, especially the south, have coach bus lines that span the north/south roads so I doubt I'll be stranded anywhere. SK and MB have oil, mining, railway, and other manual labour jobs that I can work at to extend my existence in the unlikely event that I do settle down. The whole idea of going there came from such industries actually setting up offices in South Ontario where untrained men would go to get shipped out for work. If these industries are desperate enough to buy Ontario junkies I imagine they'll accept an application from a clean SK/MB local. If I'm wrong I die.
>native drunks and junkies that infest both SK and MB
That's why I'm aiming for the prairies, because there is space enough to avoid the junkies. When I lived in rural Ontario every small patch of forest, most old barns, and even random fields had hobo tents. The city I'm in now is in official states of homeless crisis, opioid crisis, and street violence crisis. I imagine any all-white town will most likely be free of at least one of these issues. I'm also considering the future.
>Might as well try for the west coast and enjoy above freezing temperatures. Just steer clear of Vancouver since that shithole city is also infested with hordes of the nastiest homeless crackheads in Canada.
BC is just as expensive to live as Ontario if not more. The whole province is a tourism attraction with bears as a bonus. I'm not too enthusiastic about scaling mountains either. Housing prices in the developed areas are also sky high so it'd difficult to get off the streets. It's no different from Muskoka and surounding areas. Yeah all the buildings are shacks rotting to the ground, there' no infrastructure and you'd be hard pressed to find a loaf of bread for under five dollars, but despite this all it's still "pretty cottage country" and therefore reserved for only the richest.>If I was you I'd probably head East into either Quebec or the maritime provinces.
That was something I considered but the cost of living is higher there than in the central provinces. I don't speak French and the Atlantic coast is worse in winter than where I am headed. There are fewer modern cities where I can bum around in temporarily if the rural nothingness gets too much to bear.
That's what I'm collecting now. The service states it's only good for 12k before 10% tax and I've already collected nearly half of it. If I survive through the next two months of winter with minimal expenses and continue collecting into the spring I should walk away with at least 5k, more than enough for a down payment on a house in rural SK. If they introduce an extension of alternate form of free government money, then all the better.
>opt for purchasing a shitty van or something, ANYTHING that you can live in instead of going on the streets in winter.
That was the plan years ago, with a schoolbus. Unfortunately through bad decisions on my part as well as flat out being fucked over by my family and a driving school, I'm still without a G2 license.
>risk your life on the streets instead of selling it and getting yourself set up with the money? Ridiculous, get your head on straight.
Much of it is for sale. If it sells before I move out, all the better, otherwise it's going in to the storage unit to either sell later or be held on to again in the unlikely chance I find a home.
>Another option would be to not pay the landlord and just get out of there in the middle of the night.
I'm not black so I won't do that. The landlord has been very understanding of my situation and has done me favors throughout this ordeal. The utility bills following my name is one thing but skipped rent warrants court dates, which introduces police intervention if I evade. I'm paying the rent to keep a monkey off my back.
>All your stuff in storage will end up at an auction or in the trash when you eventually stop making payments and don't show up to collect them.
Yes>>175504>Get rid of the stupid waifu shit too. Should have given those kids toys away in like high school.
What would you prefer I be interested in? If I said I had bongs and rap CDs would your attitude towards keeping a single box of them in storage change?
>Lugging around a bunch of stuff will make you such an easy target.
I think I mentioned only packing enough to keep warm and hold food/water. I don't plan or larping as some survivalist and going in to the wild with cookware and woodworking tools. If there are people who will steal my one camera and tablet, then I'll just have to avoid them.
>Unless you're a multimillionaire or a politician, you can't just hop on planes and fly off at the moment.
Really? Because all booking places are still selling affordable tickets for in-country travel, and then there are trains and buses too.
>That guy probably won't even make it to the streets he'll probably just off himself like a bitch.
Why are you even posting? You talk like a nigger and seem to assume everyone else is too.
If you want to make yourself feel better by calling me a retard and taking bets on how painfully I'll die, go ahead, but don't try to convince me to do things YOUR WAY if YOUR WAY is also based on things you only THINK might be better. If you were homeless to any extent, then maybe your advice is worth anything, but it seems as if users around here have a natural inclination to be contrarian to every aspect of someone's plan just so they have a reason to post. I've been planning this in the back of my head since 2016 and have been relating everything I've done since to my future homelessness somehow. This isn't something I'm mentally unprepared for. I'm a semisuicidal idiot that will die, but if that's how it is then that's just how it is. If there's even a slight chance I can come out of it, settle down, and explain how I managed to land myself a stable and comfy life with minimal outside influence to other young men who are looking for a way out, then there's good reason to go through with it. Otherwise, I'll see you in Hell.
