I can't believe people are still responding to this guy. Even if he's not a troll, he's clearly got mental issues and needs help. I don't think he'll find the help he needs on this forum.

That was one thing I loved about living in WY, no homeless people.
Not sure if this is widely known: Atlanta used to bus their homeless to Asheville. That is why there has been such a large homeless population in Asheville for decades.

Hilarious read even if this person isnt being serious. This reminds me of a South Park episode.

lol That was just for the Olympics to sweep up the streets. Funny that they were one-way tickets though.

Don't tempt him. One of his earlier threads was in the OR forums - he was looking at Baker City/LaGrande/Ashland as options.

Huh. When I was up in Asheville, my friends (residents) told me it was an ongoing thing. Then I saw an old newspaper article about it. The fact seemed to be common knowledge in Upstate SC too.

well I didn't feel like staying when I got there...I think I chose the wrong town. There were tons of college kids, and I started thinking back to when I was 19-21, and I just got the worst images in my mind, and totally lost interest of merging with this population. Yea it was a mistake, I didn't even get off of the bus...I need to find a town with a lesser population, and less college kids...the school has more than 25,000 students, it felt like too much. Plus I wasn't all that impressed with Ohio. And on the way down there were a few people going to Tennessee, South Carolina and I started thinking maybe I'll go south instead...at least chase some good weather or something.

This was definitely a mistake and I lost a good chunk of money on it. But next time I'm gonna travel with megabus and save mega dollars. Until then I'm back to the drawing board...

Wow, I can't believe there were college kids in a college town.

Tennessee is all full, by the way.
