How is it to be a transient person in Colorado? Are there public showers or do you have to wait for automatic sprinklers to come on.

In the spring and summer/early fall its really not bad but when winter comes your going to want to get something worked out. I went hobo style for an entire season while i was going to college out there. Couldnt find a full time job and didnt have time with classes to work 2-3 part time jobs so i found a high paying 4 hour a day job and showered at the truck stop on the interstate outside of Fountain. The only thing that really sucked was the shower situation combined with the 90+ degree summer heat but other than that it was fine. i saved alot of money and come winter time had enough to pay for a season lease on a house in Manitou in full.

HOBO'S have been around SINCE railroads were built.. hop on, hop off... THEY were NOT considered a Nuisance back then...in fact, folks used to feed and clothe them, let them spend the night, bathe...Do odd chores to "pay" for the kindness of strangers. TODAY, these men and women..WHO "BEG" for handouts..on street corners, in grocery store parking lots and near colleges aren't using your donation for lodging, but for booze and drugs. There are shelters for the homeless, even for a few nights. Get you in touch with agencies for food, bus passes, lodging and securing a JOB...
