I was homeless in a rich mining town. They had two shelters, one for intoxicated people which was a mat on the floor of the salvation army basement, and one that was nice and fed you a good dinner.
There was a church that had a really good all you can eat soup kitchen that fed you nice homestyle meals 5 days a week, and on weekends the Salvation Army had a lesser quality soup kitchen. There was a library with free Internet.
There was a strip of highway within walking distance that had lots of bottles and a bottle depot if you wanted some money.

I guess my advice to the soon to be homeless is do it in the right town.

God damn. I don't care much for hippies but being so close to the sacred ocean is the closest I can think of being to paradise on this hellish world.
It provides everything. A more stable climate, the perfect water to bathe in, even a source of food. And to me, it is the closest you can get to the divine. That video reminded me of one that might have been posted more than a few times here before, but I will show anyway:

Saw this documentary years back and it inspired me greatly. Basically some old nameless Japanese man that had given up on wordly affairs retired to a secluded island somewhere off the coast of Japan, where he lives (or lived) naked and completely alone. Must watch for anyone who hasn't seen.
It's no wonder it is said the famous Kūkai achieved enlightenment while living in a cave and staring at the sky meeting the ocean.

Your definition of "comfy" is impermanent like all things. It too changes, your situation in life will alter what you think is "comfy" drastically. There can be comfort found even in the most bleak of circumstances, as long as you don't try to cling on to the past and your pre-conceived ideas.
But if you're thinking of the warmth, safety, privacy and comfort of your idealized bedroom, you will probably find no such thing.
It comes in other ways though, other ways that you can not presently imagine. For example: An image of you, completely alone, somewere foreign and far, far away might be a frightful thought in your present situation, but if the same you was walking in different shoes that image might be a source of breath-taking bliss and freedom the likes you've only dreamed of.

It's official. The relative's basement tap is dry. There is no social assistance that I qualify for here. There are no jobs to be found. These streets are dangerous. No abandoned buildings remain. Churches are closed. No enclosed vehicle is in my name. I have 30 days left of living alone in a full house with water, food, heat, and highspeed internet. Total homelessness is guaranteed for me now after that point, there's no escaping it. It's not something I fear. It's a necessary step in building a better life for myself. All I need to pay is $1250 to cover the final month of rent (which my landlord has graciously let me be as late as I need to be one). Then I need to buy some thermal underlayers, gloves, and emergency blankets to combat the cold. Finally I'll need a large rucksack to carry essentials such as blankets, additional emergency insulation, and water+food for days at a time as I will be traversing rural for the most part. I'm also likely going to take a plane out to where I wish to settle down which could run about $150 if I also buy a separate duffel bag to luggage my gear, all assuming flights are still happening. I will also need to rent a storage unit to keep on to my material goods which I can't just trash. Much of it is waifu material and childhood stuff, knick knacks, some with a bit of resale value. A small fortune in firearms and ammo. It all adds up to only a closet full though and I've already packed it away in bins. It will be willed to my cousin who becomes a full-fledged Wizard this year. I will prepay for a year's worth of the unit.

The Governmental Covidbux that I've been collecting illegally should cover all of this. Hopefully what I must order online ships in a timely manner. As a safety net I've also opened a credit card from my bank which is good for I think $1,000. Anything I need to buy with that can be payed off with later covidbux installments. There's about $6,900 left for me to collect from the bux unless they extend it. I've also got some stuff to sell (appliances, computer, some video games) which will only depreciate in value and take up space in the unit so I'm selling them at a steal.

The vast majority of my equipment will be to keep me warm and allow me to sleep. I plan to dumpster dive, beg, or even work for food, but my main goal upon landing will be to essentially hibernate through the winter while also staying mobile. I will be bringing a small camera with massive battery+storage capacity, and if I have money to spare I will also buy a small Tablet PC that can be drawn on and used for general communication. I don't expect to be able to utilize my fingers in the cold but when I do enter towns I will get use out of any open cafes, laundromats, and other services where I can sit down and unwind. I plan to log my experience for anyone interested to see.

There is an incredibly high chance I will freeze to death. There is a high chance I will wind up arrested or institutionalized for some reason. There is a moderate chance I will pussy out and end up in a homeless shelter working in a factory. There is a low chance I will actually find a rent-to-own house and present myself in a well enough manner amidst a scamdemic to acquire a shot at living there. There is an no chance that my family will return the money they stole from me, which totals to enough to buy a house where I am going.

There's a lot that I could plan better and I will not stop finding ways to increase my chances of survival, but few things are certain: I WILL be homeless, and I WONT be homeless in the province I am now. I WILL document my travels somewhat so that when I DO die from the cold, others can learn from my mistakes.

I'm excited. Not because I'll be going on some grand adventure, doing something "chaddish" and discovering meaning to life. I'm excited because no matter where I go or what happens, as of January 31st, I will never breath in the presence of my family again. All I will have to worry about from that point on are practical problems with practical solutions. No family = No drama, no emotions, no judgement, no worries. Leaving them is something I planned to do right after my mother died but I lacked a platform to get things together then, but now I've got all the resources I need and adequate time to prepare. I can finally start living a human life instead of just existing for others. They say hypothermia is a peaceful, warm, and almost euphoric death, Then again, so is dying of old age in a warm bed surrounded by your anime figurines. I'll experience at least one, so I am excited.

Thanks wiz, will do.

Yeah, Southern Ontario. It's gotten impossible for a single male to live on his own down here. Social assistance has refused me help, the price of everything is rising, and the whole culture down here has shifted. Infrastructure is flat-out crumbling. Bachelor apartments are now retirement communities. Public transit costs more than driving and has become unreliable. Any kind of insurance is through the roof. Little things particular to this part of the country have been chipping away at me for years and I'm not going to struggle trying to get a footing in what is essentially cold California. This whole social-credit vaccine situation has me worried too and I imagine the GTA and surrounding cities will be the first to get hit.

I plan to fly to either Regina, Saskatoon, or Winnipeg and head south from their. There's highly affordable living throughout all of Saskatchewan and Manitoba and hopefully the government there will be more helpful.

>>175493
It's actually $,1650 a month, plus utilities, plus water heater rental, and bring your own washer/dryer. I just payed $400 already and will let the bills follow me. It's a three bedroom townhouse with a basement and a garage. I rented it with my family but then they vanished with all my savings after I had payed 6 months of it all on my own. The landlord said the housing market is on the start of a rise so when I move out she's bumping it to $1800-something. The only places I can find for under $1400 are bachelor apartments that have yet to be converted to retirement communities, but it's such a competitive market that owners spell out clearly that they only consider families, couples, or medical workers. A room in someone's basement shared with 4 other people and their guests+pets will run $700/month. I've spent the last 4 years looking for solo accommodation, switching between living on my own to with family. It's definitely gotten harder all of a sudden.

Has anyone tried being homeless in Florida? Do places like Salvation Army feed you? I imagine it’s a lot easier and I’ve considered becoming homeless since I have no options anymore, I can’t even find a job nor do I have housing much longer (only a month left on my lease). If I can get by with a tent and free meals at a shelter I’ll take it.

Yeah, been homeless in FL.

It's a big state and how the homeless are treated vares from place to place.
The main difference is you are significantly less likely to freeze to death during the winter and hitchhiking is really hard in fl so you should try to get a bike or friend with a car if you aren't in the city.

Also the bugs can be next level bad during the warmer months.
That said I was able to earn my way off the streets in FL.
If you are willing and able to work hard and don't have major addiction you can make it here. It's nice once you get used to it.

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.

>planning on moving to the Canadian prairies to be homeless, in winter

Absolutely the most retarded thing you can do. Not only is it a barren, frozen shithole but you'll have to deal with the native drunks and junkies that infest both SK and MB. If you run out of money there you won't be making it anywhere on foot. Don't do this.
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. Prices on the west coast are also sky high so it'd difficult to get off the streets. If I was you I'd probably head East into either Quebec or the maritime provinces.

Secondly, CRB is supposed to continue until Sep 2011 last time I checked and virtually any Canadian citizen can get approved for it after completing an application that literally takes 5 min. That means $900 every two weeks until then. You do however require to keep filing for it every two weeks, so make sure you have internet access.

Thirdly, I'd strongly recommend you get your head straight and at least opt for purchasing a shitty van or something, ANYTHING that you can live in instead of going on the streets in winter.
You say you have a small fortune in guns and ammunitions yet you choose to hoard it in unused storage and risk your life on the streets instead of selling it and getting yourself set up with the money? Ridiculous, get your head on straight.
Another option would be to not pay the landlord and just get out of there in the middle of the night.

Your current plan is terrible and you won't get far. 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.

Lugging around a bunch of stuff will make you such an easy target. Not to mention, a heavier load will be more annoying to carry around.

Not to mention, travelling around during Covid will be next to impossible. Unless you're a multimillionaire or a politician, you can't just hop on planes and fly off at the moment.

>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.


>CRB

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.

My landlord, or more appropriately Property Manager, is just the weekend middleman for the government owned townhomes. The human face that is hired part time to show people around. He works fulltime as a clerk otherwise. This is why it's imperative I pay the final month, as the government itself will be the one to come after me should I fail to. It's especially important as I'm dependent on the government for all my income right now, and even legitimate people who really need it are getting denied the covbux for random reasons.

>beg for basement
Hilarious idea considering they let me go to foster care. I'm sure that idea will pan out.

My plan is to live in the woods with adequate supplies to avoid all of the trash humans in the city. I just don't have funding until I murder my parents of which will likely be stressful and I don't even know where they hide the cash, someone might hear screams and I might not have time to find it.

But anyway, you can't just choose to live with your relatives. I live with my mentally ill parents but the rest of the family refused me even at age 11 to live with them when I was put into foster care. The nuclear family in the USA is not like it is in third world nations. There are also not really any job opportunities here.

About piecing thing back together, that's silly the normalfag positivity thing that you are implying that while it's impossible on the street magically in a comfort zone that you would be motivated to 'fix' your life rather than such a comfort zone enabler your 'bad' behaviors.
