Now I am all about an alternate lifestyle. Hell I even wrote a handy guide on how to live in your car while respecting people around you, but this is too damn much. I cannot stand the wanton disregard for safety, any sort of law, and the amount of freeloading displayed here. Lets take a look and see how badly this group of people are doing it wrong.
First line of this article "The 1981 school bus has empty yellow sockets where the headlights should be, bald tires and two pieces of duct tape to keep grease from oozing out of a front wheel." Keep in mind just a few months ago this thing was on the same roads as you were. How hard is it to just go to a junkyard and give the guy 2$ to let you take out a couple of 7" round headlights and put them in your bus? He'll probably give them to you for free to get your stank ass out of the place
I get it, tires can be expensive, but Jesus, you drove all the way across the country on this? On the same roads I drive with my family?
And you got a one time transfer pass from your local California town hall to motherfucking Portland Maine, and get across with a cardboard tag? Not to mention your broken taillights
And you don't have any money to put diesel in the tank, so you go haunt gas stations with a 5 gallon container to beg for diesel, instead of sending your 5 other minions to go even do day labor or get a decent job? Well la dee da people are pissed, and want you to move along? And this was his attitude when asked how he could get away with this for so long "Who wants 12 more homeless people in town that will get drunk and ask people for money?" Fuck you. And then "After learning that police planned to tow the bus, the 29-year-old Pratt ran back on board and hid beneath his mattress, leading to a three-hour confrontation with police."
Yeah that is how you deal with issues like this. And take my fucking tax dollars on a police response. Ugh.
Oh yeah, and this is an example of how not to live in your conveyance, like a dirty fucking hippy.
Just read the article. I am getting more and more livid the more I read it. I am friends with the guy who towed this thing. I am going to send Dicky over a 12 pack today as thanks.
