Living In A Box Truck

Because renting began to suck

After a series of unfortunate experiences with consecutive rental accommodations and their respective landlords, I was at my ends tether. In a Eureka moment of “not giving a fuck”, I finally gave in on rented accommodation and decided to live in a truck.  The articles below document my life of living in a box truck.
