Thank you! Exactly. I can sneak "below the radar" as needed, but I/WE shouldn't have to! Everything is now being fence, posted or guarded. They are no longer asking you nicely to move on, they want your ID, registration, proof of insurance and one fuck up and you go to jail...

Just for wanting to find a place to sleep! Not for any crime other than wanting to stop in their land, guarded by their fucking goons.

Please don't change the subject to some clever way to get around this. We should have to.

Golf courses in state fucking parks? Grrrrrrr!

Millions of acres have now been called National Wildlife Preserves and hunters can hunt there, but you can't camp without a fee.

No overnight parking in public marinas, boat ramps or public parks.

How about this one. Acres and acres around things like water towers, com towers, etc. The whole acreage is off limits...

It goes on and on...

Again, I am NOT crying about my problem. SOON this may be your problem also...

Yes, I think there is a lot more actual danger out there than there used to be, too. I would never think of taking a trip and sleeping in the back of the van alone anymore. I used to just go where I wanted as an unaccompanied lady, with no fear.

There are just too many crazy and ruthless people out there any more. Unfortunately, nowadays, often they are the police. :-(

I am glad to get a real time update on the situation though, I did not know it was so bad. Though I should have known, shouldn't I?

Re: For anyone traveling full time around the U.S. it is getting harder and harder to find places to park overnight for free.
Not just the parking problem, but there's a WMA in West VA that was used for hunting and hiking for years, and last year the state just decided to shut it down so it could be used for military drills. So now they have to do that all the time and this state acreage can't be used by the public anymore? What kind of bullshit is that?

Get a flat tire and stash it in the back, park on the side of a highway, change a good tire with the flat tire and just go to sleep.

Make sure you tint your windows or at least get window covers and you should be good. Also its legal for Semi-drivers to kick it in rest areas and I've seen them park on off ramps to sleep, so why couldn't you?

I like to travel around a bit and I have noticed that travel is increasingly being monitored within our own borders. I could tell you a story or two. It has been happening for years. I didn't know Walmart had started shutting down boondocking. That is a a real saver because you can shop for grub and supplies in the morning there and hit the road faster.

Think about this for a moment. Why are the cops SO concerned about people parking overnight? The crimes are not from 1 night transient parkers. There is crime everywhere, but they have decided to keep undesirables out instead of upholding the laws.

These thugs are nothing but the security guards of the wealthy. They watch public and private land like a "junk yard dog". And as soon as you are noticed, they are asking for your license and running it through the database.

But, you have committed no crime, not even a traffic stop. Most times it's not on a road or highway!

But, no one minds as long as they keep the "criminals" away...

Please understand. You are being made to believe that it is "more dangerous"! That's a lie to justify their nazi control tactics.

See? It's all about fear!

Most of these people are the best people on the earth. They just want to roam free. Is this not the land of the free?

No it's not.

So, why do we tolerate and allow these thugs to do this? We don't just tolerate it, we demand it!

Why? Fear. Fear of poor people. Fear of being harmed. But, I suspect that the actual danger is not any worse from transient people than any other group.

Of course the media pushes the fear of travel and "bums" constantly. This is a controlled change and it is just beginning...

Well, time to go. I slept last night in a strip mall parking lot. I was told to "move on" yesterday by the local sheriff deputies, 3 cars of them for one old 62 year old, short, fat guy. Of course, a license check and look around my truck. No traffic stop, private parking lot parked. Fine with me.

Peace and love to all and I'll see you on the road.

Go to a truckstop man. They have large lots designated for overnight use. They're full of trucks, RVs and cars sleeping a few hours.

The truckstop operators have them for a reason. They want you to use them. People come there to park and sleep, they buy breakfast at the diner before they leave. They get cigarettes and more beer and fuel. They'll be happy you're parked in their lot and nobody will fuck with you.

In BC by law you can camp anywhere on crown land for up to three weeks provided you build no structures. Then you have to move on.

BC also has a fantastic recreation site system although in some districts that has been privatized and you now have to pay. The current neo Liberal government tried to do away with them when they first came into power but in a lot of areas people fought back.

BC Hydro also provides an amazing system of free campgrounds.
