I miss the old original format board. For those who remember me, I thought I would fill you all in.
In 2006 I moved back from California, broke, divorced, and no money. I started putting life back together. The economy was crashing and I eventually just got over ran financially.
I would have never believed it unless I actually lived it, but I actually became homeless. Yeah, that guy, with a piece of cardboard standing there, hoping someone will share a dollar of their paycheck. There is nothing romantic about it. It sucks!!!
I came across some very lucrative job leads and thought all my problems were solved. A month later I came down with antibiotic-resistant pneumonia. It took 6 months to get the stuff killed. It nearly killed me. Now I have a lot more health trouble. Breathing trouble. And was approved for early social security.
Now I'm working with Veterans Affairs to help me with housing.
I never would have believed I could have became homeless. Not me haha no way!! I'm smarter than that!!! WRONG!!!
However, I'm not dead yet!!! And I managed to keep my guns 馃榿 reloading equipment and all my fishing tackle 馃榿 all the important stuff!!
So here I am starting all over with a cheap smartphone. Life is what it is.
Hobo Tyler out.

Damn old son,
Sounds like life has beat you up a bit. Glad to hear you are working your way and and glad this board is a part of that. It's not the same place it was 10-12 years ago, but it's getting better all the time and reruns like you are a part of that. Thanks for coming back.

Yes it is different. There is so few of us remaining,
you wont have to worry about someone talking over
the top you. Sometimes its almost like being in a gymnasium
by yourself. You salvaged the 2 most important things,
your life and your toys. All things will come together
if it is meant to be. LDS

I feel your pain, bro. in winter of 99 I was checking out bridge overpasses for a dry place to live. Actually had my car paid for, and was on the brink of living in it while I looked for work.

Faith in myself and God pulled me through! That what does not kill us, makes us stronger!!

I wouldn't want to repeat the experience again. But, know now that I could survive if ever down and out again. Hang in there! Keep the faith.

Good for you Hobo

Find a good church. A church that has a preacher that can do more than read copy word for word. A speaker who speaks from the heart and does not read a prepared script by his boss at headquarters.

A preacher who speaks from his heart while looking at the congregation will move your soul.
