New Blog: Homeless by Choice

A few days ago, I created a new blog extolling the virtues of "Free Sleeping"...

Mission Statement

This blog explores the techniques and philosophy of "urban camping"—that is, spending the night in a populated area without paying rent. Whether you do it for one night or every night, what are the risks and rewards? We will explore the various personal, economic and social implications, and will conduct field studies to prove the concept and test our techniques.


  1. "Homeless by choice" is an oxymoron because the truly homeless have no other choice but to be homeless. You are doing a great disservice to the homeless cause by pretending that camping or being on an extended vacation is homelessness; like the phony beggars who pretend to be homeless while raking in thousands of dollars.

    The truly homeless do not deserve this bad rap.

  2. Struck a nerve! Now we are making progress!

    This comment should be posted to the blog itself, however, since it will probably be overlooked here.
