Sleep Deprived


Was, umm… kindly? woken up at 2:30 this morning by the police knocking at my window. 

No camping in SLC. Period. 

Nicer than the last interaction with the police, but still annoying. He just suggested I try and ‘blend in’ more downtown. I was parked on campus–where I’ve bought a parking pass & am in classes– and nearly blinded as I was told that what I was doing was illegal. 

Lessons learned:

  • Don’t leave your windows open to cool the place down. Not worth it. 
  • Empty parking lots basically turn you into a target for the cops. 
  • Stay grateful for friends who have a flat spot to park a few minutes away.

  1. I really hope that in the future, van living will be legal. Sadly, I think it’s only illegal because the government wants property taxes and money. Good luck finding a place downtown. It probably will be a bit easier there.

      It’s a total bummer & I guess just something we get to navigate until they legalize the lifestyle!

    You can park in front of my house any time. Think the law is car can’t be parked more than 72 hours straight. 1034 Bryan Ave. My front yard is a jungle, your truck might stand out as too nice. Pray for more snow and less wind for this winter


  4. Unfortunately, you have to turn into somewhat of a ghost as an urban camper. Doable, yet annoying.
