I've been camping and traveling and living the vagabond life since 2015.
This is my thread on how to advice you on how to find a place to camp in nearly any city while traveling.

First you need to consider the weather and what you need from your camp spot.
Will it be cold, will it be windy, will it be wet, will it be dusty, safe etc?

You should also get familiar with several camping techniques and some light bush crafting skills such as how to make a lean to that can hide your tent for example, make small hard to detect fires and so on.

Once you have that you want to start scouting for a location.
This relies heavily on the country and town your in on what you should be looking for. I live in a very population dense city so the best options are on the edge of town for example.
A less populated city will allow you to live closer to town.

Usually long term actual homeless people take up the best spots that are also usually the most visual. They rely on their stigma in society to be left alone.
You don't have this benefit. So we need to look a bit further off the beaten path.

In Europe I find some of the best easiest to find spots are under inaccessible highway overpasses.
Not big major ones either as they are loud, viable and usually covered in litter.
Go to one that isn't visible from the road or is between a bunch of weird highway connections for example.
They are usually totally over grown and litter free.
No one will ever bother you there. You can stay for months on end with a full camp site.

For more in the city, look for abandoned buildings obviously.
Other wise head to your largest park.
>Example
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donauinsel

There are about 100 people or so living in this park full time. But most of them live in the far north part of it where no really goes much.
I managed to find a spot right between two walking paths that was about 1/4 and acre but it was so dense no one bothered going in. I hollowed out the center area with my hatchet and and made a small camp.
For stealth camping like this get a portable gas burner.
I stayed in this camp nearly 6 months totally undisturbed.

Started with a diamondback hybrid frame($75) and added a bafang 750w mid-drive motor with 52v 6ah lithium ion battery. I have my headlight integrated, but not taillight yet. I will give a final build report when I have all of the running lights working and probably upload a video as well.

I use this to commute to work 5 days a week, 13 miles each way. I currently average about 21-22 mph following red lights and stop signs with cars present (why stop at 3am?).

That's not really true, when you take into account infrastructure costs. Though, there's massive regional variation due to topography and weather variation.

I am afraid of driving. Being a driver, driving a car. I get neck cramps after around 20 minutes and it hurts, the steering wheel is just too sensitive so I always freak out "what if the electrical power steering malfunctions and the wheel goes haywire?" and I sweat profoundly. I tend not to think about "what ifs" but I still shit pants every time I get behind the wheel.

Buy a wider cushioned seat and seat cover it helps.

Im skeleton sinky and I use fat people seats because the stock seats are so narrow they like press up into my ass uncomfortably. They sell them any where they sell bikes.

I even had a really fat friend who needed to get a stronger stem (the bar attaching the seat to the frame) made of steel because the aluminum ones would bend. That may help.

Good luck man

How heavy you have to be to bend a stem? This is the first time I've ever heard such thing in my life. My guess is the aluminium was probably cracked or of really bad quality.

Thoughts on these electric scooter rentals?

I understand they’ve been annoying in bigger cities where you already have density and a lot of transportation options. But I think they’re awesome for mid-large cities and suburbs where everyone’s so dependent on cars.

>>35879 sorry just looked it up the battery lasts for about 2000 cycles. Does anyone know if that means a full charge cycle? or what about partial charges? Could you extend the battery life by charging it only from say, 30%-80%?

A full cycle is every time you recharge your battery to full charge after using it. Charging batteries after using 10-20-30-100% etc. Will not prolong battery life.

Partial charges are not recommended.

Try getting a replacement for your battery pack before it claps out to avoid wasting time later. Also if you plan to make small electric vehicles a part of your life look into a Battery Balance Charger/Discharger, they're quite handy for revitalizing batteries and a must if you feel like making your own battery packs (via laptop battery prospecting also you'd need a battery spot welder).

I bought this 2000 honda accord, and it's got these problems now:
  • side door impact dented
  • taillight busted
  • radiator or something bust and there was this big explosion of white smoke
  • car wont start: distributor allegedly filled with oil?

Do you think it's worth getting it running again or should I just sell it? And if I sell, then do I have to sell it for scrap value? And if you're going to sell a car for scrap value, how do you get the most you can for that?

Why buy a completely shitty car when you dont even like the kind of car or anything? kinda stupid, man. i bought a car for $1k thats a 1998 and is running just fine after a little routine maintenance and getting into the make, gathering info etc. lol i could've just said "welp i bought a shitty car ill just keep it shitty its not worth it" but what's the point. obviously a 2000 accord isn't worth saving by any means but why even bother. you're not getting more than a couple hundred $ for it. just sell it to nearest scrapyard, buy next car to kill i guess.

I'm just telling you man, it's always cheaper to buy a semi decent cheap car and keep it running longer. join the makes facebook groups, i got lots of spare parts for free just from nice people who didn't need the stuff anymore. so its just not worth it to keep killing cars and its also not very nice, an accord is a decent car.

Cuba

So, I'm planning a vacation to Cuba for my birthday in mid November - it's going to be me and my wife. We both speak spanish, she way more fluently than I. Our main interests are beaches, old towns, art museums and historical landmarks related to the golden age of sail.
We haven't completely worked out the budget yet, but minus the plane tickets, I think I'll be able to save up something along the lines of €10009 for both of us for about 9 days there.
We're not particularly rich, but I've been told by people you don't need that much money once you actually reach Cuba.
I'm currently looking for cheap 2-way tickets, and I was wondering which city would be the best to touch down and start our vacation? To some extent, we're dirty hippies, so we don't need super fancy accomodation/all-inclusive crap, a simple room with a double bed and an AC will be more than enough, we don't even need TV or internet, so I'm thinking we'll crash at youth hostels. We don't intend to stay in one place for the whole thing, so I'm thinking of renting a car as well. I was thinking we could start with Havana and make our way south along the souther beachline, then leave from Guantanamo airport at the end of our vacation.
You think a €1000 will be enough for this plan? Any suggestions for particular towns we should visit?
Additionally, what's the deal with weed there?
Also, being EU whites, should we watch out for muggers/pickpockets/generally people who want to steal our shit?


>Thanks in advance, 420bros. This has been my dream vacation since I wasn 17, so any input is appreciated. SLAYER

Weed is like tobacco over there, it’s just about knowing the right guy. But they have a similar situation just because the cuban cigars. You can get the same type of high, just because you are in Cuba. Both of you can do whatever you want to there man, just that ot runs through the locals.

I drive a 2003 Hond Civic, bought used at 110k, Nearly 180k miles now. Radiator replaced at 120k or so.

Sixty-thousand miles accumulated, a problem occurs. Throughout last winter, cabin heat would mot work; until reaching speeds of 40-45 mph, and only after driving for 30 minites or so. Coolant check, oil change, check. Continue without much problem.





I begin to notice that when I turn my cabin temp to hot, regardless of turning air-flow on, my temp gague on my dash rockets up to unsustainable levels.

My questionis whether or not I oughta investigate the thermostat, the thermoswitch for the the belt fan, should I check my water pump (i also see a greater effect ofthe same described phenomenon once going uphill for a prolonged period), do i just have an air pocket in my air system? I have spiders in my vents too. what should i do?

I have some expendable monies in the range of less than 1k.

This took a really brash turn.

What im saying is that the cabin heat used to run just fine, and now it doesnt.

Not like I need it now. But the engine thermostat reads hot after 2 minutes of switching the cabin heat knob to hot.

Not to derail the thread but I have a smilar problem in my 1988 Honda Prelude, 3G

Has quite the mileage on it but it still runs well. She's my baby & I'm trying to fix her up.

The transmission started going out & I thought it was one, already had the engine replaced. Turned out it just needed fluid.. Japanese & their tiny hands man, took my friends dad 20m to find the trans fluid to fill it up.

Thing is the car is overheating, especially if it idles a while. I can't drive it more than 30m before the engine temp skyrocets. I may need a new radiator but I don't think that's it.

Fairly vague with my assessment here but any advice appreciated, I love the crap out of Third Gen's. Goal is to keep mine as a parts car & find one with 4WS

Hello there,

I'm going to London with a friend in the first weekend of June. It's gonna be my first time. Can you recommend what to do / where to go / what to see? I don't know what I want, I'm just stoked to see the city. (yes, I am doing my research, but I love 420chan, so asking you guys, also)

If it helps: love food/alcohol; wanna go to a true pub; eat fish and chips; eat traditional English breakfast; music; nature; markets; small shops.

I don't know. Don't wanna go mainstream places (unless they are worth it (I probably sound dumb)).

Thank you for your input!!!

Theres a few good castles in england, but for the best ones you have to go to Ireland, Scotland and Wales, where they were needed to intimidate the celts. As for roman ruins we have a few but not many cause we were a frontier nation (hadrians wall, bath, chester and york have good roman stuff).
What we do have though is lots of ruins of monasteries and cathedrals from when we did away with catholics, bit of a shame compared with the existing ones left in the rest of europe.

You should check out atlas obscura also OP.
