When I lived in Anchorage, AK a few years ago, I was astonished at the sheer number of homeless people living there. The winters aren't the harshest (compared to the Twin Cities and Chicago), but they are indeed long (snow is usually on the ground from early November through at least early-mid April) and worst of all, it's a very expensive city to live in.

Yeah, that's what all the homeless are doing in the library all day long. Reading.

Default another homeless day.

Well, PART of being homeless, is avoiding, the police, and trying, to keep Your appearance, respectable. Try to avoid, living with other jomeless, you will get caught up, in there Bill ****, and eventually, they will Rob you, or bum, off of you.I got robbed, well My campsite, Some losers, took My valuable electronics, they are to lazy, to work, they, the homeless, look forva East score, alot of then, are ex- felons, that is a red flag there, they are punks, looking for ex money. Seattle, is a good place, to camp, in the Summer, san diego, hawaii, texas, has slot of Woods, and there is a lot, of resources, around Austin. If you can afford, a small storage, unit, get One, to Store Your stuff. You can get a p.o. Box, for Your mail, but there are places, that will Let, you get Your mail, for free. Apply, for good stamps, and general assistanced money, get a Bus pass, It is cheaper, in the Long run. For you losers, without I.d., there are places, that will help you, always, take Care of yourself, no One else, wants to, good luck

Default homeless life.

I did Seattle, If you Like rain, and overcrowed shelters, go there, o away from the city, Like Kent, renton, auburn, in a wooded area, do you really want to stsy, on the city, to much to worry about. You can go to halfway housinf, or a sober solutions house, but that gets old.

There simply isn't enough to go around to take care of the people here already in need.

There is also a danger. The police are overworked trying to protect the homeless from the gangs who come here from out of town traveling through on their way to California. They prey on pedestrians and store owners robbing and beating them up but mostly they beat and rob homeless people sleeping on the streets. This is also something that has gotten out of control the mayor is trying to resolve.

If you try to live on the streets of Portland these days, you might be very sorry.
Portland decided to subsidize being homeless. Now they complain that they are getting more of what they paid for. I lived in Portland when these decisions were being made. I am glad that I no longer live there. I don't want to pay higher property taxes so someone can make a choice to be homeless. I have compassion for those that are trying, but not for those that choose to be homeless.
