Moving back and living in a van

Moving back and living in a van

Posted in the Chicago Forum


Ozark, MO

#1 Jan 16, 2014
I am 50 yrs old and have been living in a small town in Missouri for the past 20 years. I was born and raise in Chicago and miss it so much. I am on disability so can't afford an apartment in a decent neighborhood. So I was thinking of getting an old van and fixing it up and living in that. Try to find safe places to park at night to sleep and find a health club to shower in every day.
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm figuring on a year or two before I can leave here.
