I was there a few years ago. >>975579
Every dollar I made at my job(s) was spent on just trying to keep my head above water, paying for a place to sleep so I'd be well rested for work, a car to get to and from work, clothes I only ever wore to work, and lots of fast food because my job didn't leave me time to cook a decent meal. I did that for a decade and had nothing to show for it except a budding drug problem because of all the stress. Now I only work when I actually need the money, and spend the rest of my time traveling. I have fewer 'things', but I also have a lot of really great memories. Oh, and the drugs? Well, I don't need them anymore because I'm not stressed about anything.>>975582>what should i bring?
Depends on your climate, but a bed roll, alcohol stove, steel cup and a water filter, lighter, a knife, a marker and a change of clothes is my main gear. >how much do you guys spend a day?
I get by with a few grand/year, that includes gear replacements. Food stamps helps, cooking instead of eating out helps; in general, asking yourself "is this a need or a want?" helps a lot.>how do you make money?
I do temp work or odd jobs a few weeks out of the year.>i really dont want to beg people for money. where do you find free food?
You don't need to, I don't. Grocery store dumpsters are amazing, everything is boxed/sealed / days within expiration / perfectly fine.
