Bros I tried it, probably in the easiest city on earth to do it (Melbourne), and I only made it 3 nights before I said fuck this and got a hostel.

I don't know how the fuck he does it, he must have ZERO fear response, extreme low inhibition. I tried to sleep stealthed in a lot area but I was so scared, every little sound could be danger I literally lay there heart pounding. And I was too scared to get in my sleeping bag so I used it like a blanket but it was freezing.

Next night I just tried sleeping at the bus station but it was so scary there were homeless and crackhead there and the security kept waking me up and hassling me. Third night I was just so fucking exhausted I slept in the day in a park up until late evening and then just stayed up all night, and then finally got a hostel. It was so worth it, to feel safe, to shower, to have some sort of feeling of "home".

I don't know how he does it. I'm so scared of some junkie of crackhead waking me up with a knife in my face , or I've watched liveleak videos where people set homeless on fire in there sleeping bags. What if someone just snuck up on you and threw a brick on your head when you're sleeping? It's too scary. He must have nerves of steel.

    One thing to keep in mind and this is from lotsa experience fucking up is that if you sleep in a city, like right in the middle of a downtown area, you really have nothing to fear. Infact I'd say the more people the better, noise sucks sure but you get used to it and the commotion means safety for you, people don't wanna talk to you and also homeless just mind their own business in some places and don't fuck with you. If you sleep in a place like Seattle, Salt Lake City, Portland, find a big busy area if you can't find a forest or a park. And police and security might fuck with you, so far, I have never been told to get the fuck out by either. I've been surrounded by homeless folks in Seattle sleeping under a bridge cuz I didn't wanna pay for a hotel while I was attending an anime convention. Those homeless told me where to sleep, bought me food from Jack in the Box, and took me on a guided tour of the city by bus.

      Yep that's where I got some sleep. Actually they close the train station real late but the bus part is still open. Inwas laying in there on the floor or benches and the security were hassling me (they're dressed like cops). This was on Saturday night when it was pouring with rain so I needed some shelter it was really just a near last resort. It felt do sketchy, there obvious crackheads, people asking me for money, one guy literally raving like a fucking lunatic.

      Anyway I've gone to Canberra now and get this some fucking homeless woman just straight up asked me for 20 dollars earlier! 20 fucking dollars! I'm like no she's like well how about 10? I just ignored her and she's starts ranting about how I'm broke.

      What the fuck? Who the fuck just asks someone for 20 dollars? I'm staying in a hostel tonight but I looked.round the city and man this is so much better to camp in than Melbourne this is gonna be easy.

      Yeah if you watch his surveillance camera man videos or his "riot holiday" he almost borders on autistic in his inability to read social cues/danger. No wonder he can actually sleep in these places most people would be far to alert for good reason. Evolutionary speaking it is the complete opposite of safe human behavior- sleep alone amongst strangers/foreigners/other tribe. Basically any other time or culture in human history you'd be murdered for doing this.

    To travel in this kind of way you need to have a general plan in place.

    This is kind of similar to travelling in a van or couchsurfing where there is very minimal security (paid private room) Since you are going to rely on yourself and sleep outdoors it will be up to you to find the best places to sleep.

    Melbourne has a pretty big homeless population in such a concentrated area. I walk around the city at night, including off-the-track tucked away parts of the urban area/infrastructure and I can tell you with 100% conviction that every night, pretty much every square meter of the city is walked, even around the bushes and under bridges.
    You will encounter somebody unless you sneak into an unmanned portable room/festival tent (like VH did on that one ep.) There is security everywhere as well and pretty much everything is somewhat protected.
    Your best bet would be to find some sort of construction site with slow/halted progress and sleep in there for the night.
    Second best would be somewhere along the sides of the railway tracks/in the trees along bike paths.

    There is really no point of travelling this way in Melbourne unless you're hardcore or you're just interested in exploring the city but alas like with all travel if you're just going to walk around to check the place out, you'll be limited to looking and not touching unless you have money to spend.

    Travelling to China and other developing countries (which this guy should do) will give you the best opportunities to travel like this. Also everything is cheap as fuck to experience and there is not much of a homeless problem and plenty of empty structures with no security.

    Bottom line, if you're going to scum it out in Western countries on your own, the starting price limit (after your airline ticket) is about $1000 which insures a car rental/bus tickets, food, and motel each night for about 2 weeks.

    But can you link to the segments of his videos where he does that? I tried a random video and couldn't find any public sleeping.

    If that is what he does, I don't see the appeal. But I will admit it is more noble than the retarded Western dropout culture assholes who go to countries like Thailand, Vietnam, etc. but they can't afford it and have signs begging others to subsidize their travel...

    Also yes, it's normal to be tired after your 3rd night, just take a rest in hotel, day or two and go back at it or go home and do it again in couple of months after you regain your energy. Good luck.

    In a city like Melbourne the best place to sleep without being bothered would be a treed area in a suburb. It seems counterintuitive but there will be no crackheads and nobody really poking their nose around after dark. It isn't a normal occurrence for them so nobody is really paying too much attention, especially if you know how to blend in. Or a university campus. Yes there is security but the campuses are sprawling and security are pretty easy to avoid/outsmart, and at the end of the day there are always a lot of people, doctoral candidates, post-doc researchers doing shit really late at night so it isn't extremely out of the ordinary for someone to be there. In my experience they also don't generally check INSIDE classrooms/lecture halls after doing their first initial check after hours.

    You mentioned not being able to shower which is absolutely fucking ridiculous and exposes you as stupid and unprepared. First of all, it's very easy to access most hostel showers without actually having to stay there. Beyond that there are showers at gyms, universities, and campgrounds. In a city like Melbourne there will be outdoor showers by the beaches and even some covered showers, and nobody will think it's weird or suHispanicious that you are there showering.

    Well guys I just basically gave up on this shit. I camped two nights in Canberra, woke up covered in fuckin ants and the city was weird as hell, like Sims world. The amount of walking you have to do is unreal. Walk to stash your stuff, walk back, walk round city to explore, walk walk walk walk. Spend all day worrying somebody stole your stuff, have to carry a bunch of shit anyway because that you can't afford it to be stolen (passport, power brick, chargers, notebook with documents etc, plus water food etc).

    And it's just exhausting. You can't really sleep in because it's in daylight and o don't want to be seen, so you're up and moving from sunrise to sunset basically.

    Anyway I took the bus to Sydney and I thought I'd try one more night and just wandered round until it got dark but I started feeling scared again (Saturday night, drunk people, I was walking round kings cross area), and just thought fuck it and got a hostel again.

    I was doing this as a test and to "harden myself up" basically, exposure therapy to help with my fears, but I failed ;_;

    Oh well I'll just carry on with a normal holiday.

      Also, Canberra has nothing in it *at the best of times*. You need a car to do anything, the place is sprawling and public transport is limited . With that said if you want to escape people and get into the bush you could have done worse. See these coordinates

      (-35.4129314, 149.0491540)

      Lots of buses go to Tuggeranong interchange. You can use the area as your base. Follow the river north for as long as you like, there’s usually no one there and it’s a great walk. You can then sleep down near the river and you won’t be disturbed.

    I was homeless for 2 years. Slept around buildings, in bushes, in and urban park. and parking garages and park bathrooms. in fact when i was 19 (2001), I went to NYC and slept in Central Park 5 days near the Strawberry Fields area. Rough sleeping is vary doable if you know how to handle yourself

    I've slept out in the wild a bunch of times, here's a non-exhaustive list:

    - In some small, shithole town in Wales, found a house on sale in a quiet neighborhood and just slept in their backyard with my sleeping bag, no tent. There was no gate to the backyard, so it wasn't breaking and entering.

    - In Montpelier, France. Found a building complex with open access to the inner courtyard and just set up my bivy there behind some trees. A dude walking his dog saw me but he didn't care.

    - In Ushuaia, Argentina. Found a small marina (the one right next to the closed-off lake) with free access to the boats, then I looked for an unoccupied boat and slept in the cabin. The rocking of the water lulled me to sleep.

    - Was in New York once without a place to stay, so I just took the metro to La Guardia airport, found a comfy spot on some chairs and slept like a king. The next day I woke up and went to see the Thanksgiving parade. Was with a girl I was banging too, though we did not bang at the airport (totally should have!).

    - Saint Lucia, fucking Caribbean. Slept at Choc cemetery, right next to the airport. I had just landed on the island from St. Vincent and I wasn't gonna pay for a hotel. I had seen the cemetery next to the airport before so I said fuck it. Set up my bivy right on top of a big stone tombstone, slept for a bit.Then it started to rain so I got my stuff and walked along the beach until I found an open shack and slept there. When I woke up, there was locals at the beach and this nice old lady keeping an eye on me from afar, making sure I was ok.

    - Saint Lucia again, around Fort Vieux bay. Was down south with a buddy of mine bumming around, we had a bottle of rum and we spent the night climbing up coconut trees getting those small green coconuts and drinking that water with rum. Then we just slept on the beach, hidden in the tall grass and other vegetation. We woke up and again there were locals on the beach, a bit surprised to see two white dudes sleeping.

I recommend if you can to somehow take a boat to Puerto Williams, the chilean town south of Ushuaia, the nature there is gorgeous as well.

    >nerves of steel
    That he has. A few times he's filmed scams in progress, and that takes balls.
    I'm a little surprised how little content he puts out since it seems easy to make:
    >budget is $1000 for entire trip
    >spend 4 nights in Florence
    >film 4 minutes of content
    >enjoy the rest of the time like a regular tourist
    I don't think he's putting on an act though. Listen to his voice when he starts filming in the morning and that's definitely the voice of someone that needs a cup of coffee.

    all my dumb shit for my trip in Puerto Vallarta

      OP

      You're going to get killed bro.

      Anyway it's OP here I've switched from going full vagrant holiday, to just easing into it with a mix of sleeping on greyhounds, homeless camping, and staying in hostels. I think just straight away going from my own place with nice things to literally sleeping among crackheads was too much of a change for me to handle. I had no street experience or confidence but I'm getting better. I'm up north of Sydney now, I slept on a greyhound the previous night, and then last night I slept in a nature reserve and holy shit the place was going fucking insane. There were like 10,000 giant fucking bats screeching and flapping around, all these random animal noises I've never heard before and I was freaking out again thinking one of these bats would attack me. It was near water as well and there all this splashing and shit. There's just so much life here it's crazy! I could barely sleep near that lol. But anyway my holiday is going a lot better now I'm out of the big cities, the beaches here are so nice, there's so many new plants and animals I've never seen before, and I can feel my confidence getting better which was the entire point of doing this.

      And I've started caring less, like a few days ago I got off a bus at 4am and I was so tired I just walked like 50 meters to a children's playground, lay on the bark and went to sleep. I even woke up with people around (like morning joggers) and just put my hoodie over my face and went back to sleep. As long as nobody hassles me then what does it matter if I'm seen? Previously I has obsessed with being 100% stealth.

        This is the best way to do it. Just do whatever makes the most sense at the time. At the end of the day it's just for you. No one will care about your travels or if you sleep in bushes vs a hostel.

    The problem with a lot of what the anons on here are trying to do is setting up unrealistic parameters for themselves while playing a incredibly difficult and forcefully adaptive game. If you think you're going to cowboy it up and try to sleep in a bush next to a bus stop and find any success you're out of line. Only the stupidest and most strung-out, peanut brained bums do that kind of shit and are able to withstand it to a certain degree because of how numb they are from drugs and years of conditioning. If you want to LARP as some vagrant nomad, you're gonna have to play a little tough and some daunting shit.

    For starters, don't bring a bunch of shit with you. You're better of taking what's in your pockets and what's in your brain than a 30 lbs. backpack of miscellaneous shit. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, water bottle, spare clothes, flashlight, medical kit, a whole fucking sleeping sack. That's just too much, remember you're not going into the backwoods of Montana, you're about a mile from any pharmacy an two from any UC (Urgent Care.) Take the clothes you are wearing, your wallet, extra cash, a lighter, a small multi-tool, and a flash for water if you absolutely want to.

    Secondly, those dreams about bivouacking a shelter or sleeping in a gutter in the middle a park like this asshole does. Dead, total horseshit. Do NOT do this. It's tactically dangerous to bum out in some park shrubbery. Not only are you welcoming unwanted company; be it peacekeepers, concerned citizens, or desperate bums. But, you are also not going to be able to sleep effectively and run the risk of getting sick as a dog if it rains. Instead, find a shelter. Like, a building. Find a way to get inside and find a room to sleep in. You'll be warmer and safer, trust me. If at worst, find a natural formation like a overhanging tree or a small cave.

      Thirdly, you're gonna have to eat. You'll have money, go to a restaurant and order 1 meal. Steak and potato, drink some milk before to get a bit of energy. If have run dry in funds, you'll just have to dine-and-dash. Go to a store and nab a jug of milk and some jerky, same with hygiene products. You are a vagrant, a survivor, a guerilla in behind enemy lines.

      Fourth, when it comes to hygiene and health, don't complicate it. Have to take a shit? Find a restroom. Can't? Find a forested area and some fabric-like leaves. When you're done shitting, do as followed: Wipe dry first, wipe with soap and water once clear of initial shit, wipe with just water to clear soap off, wipe dry again. You can do this in public stalls by getting some soap on piece of tissue and wetting it before going into a stall and doing your duty. Got no soap? No water? Spit, spit has antimicrobial bacteria that cleans wounds and surfaces. It's 90% water and 10% enzyme, a poor-mans soap. (Little friendly tip, lay off the bread because you could give yourself a yeast infection from the spit-to-ass if you have any cuts.) When it comes to shaving and underarms, feet, what ever. You'll just have to find the time and resource your materials from the restroom you are in. Keep dry, being cold in a cold and windy environment is uncomfortable. But being wet can be a death sentence. When it rains, take shelter and wait or maneuver underneath covers. If you somehow get hurt, badly, you'll want to find a U.C. (Urgent Care) or an actual hospital. You should probably keep an insurance card or a bit of cash on hand. If you can't do that, you'll have to resource from yourself. Sick? Gut problems? Rest and only consume fluids. Cut badly? Get some disinfectant and a bandage. Internal problems like appendicitis? Rest and try to massage while upside down to get rid of any blockage.

      Usually, if you rest sometimes your appendix will wall off whatever infection it has and repair itself. However, antibiotics or surgery is needed.

      Fifth, confidence is key. No matter your environment you are in, always see yourself as a predator. As the king, or as if you belong were you are. Don't have to be an ass and all uppity, but don't be disrespected or disconcerting to others. Be polite, quiet, and traceless. Always clean up after yourself and leave nothing behind, put back everything where it belongs. Being polite will get you far. Don't be a kiss-ass, just be calm and cordial. If you do come across an unsavory fellow, like a fucking mugger. Don't give him anything. Believe me, DO NOT. Only give him something if you plan to lead them into a trap where you are able to strike them. People think they reason with another man who wants the world from you. You give them your wallet, next your shoes, jacket, and well fuck it they don't like how slow you are or they don't want a witness so they just gouge you or crack across the face and you realize you would have had better chances at fighting. So, fight. I don't care, throw your wallet to the ground and wait from them to bend down before you knee or flip a kick into their face. Keep a weapon on you an act in defense always. Most importantly, don't enter silly places. Shit like dark streets or empty parks. Always stay in crowded areas and only disperse when it's time to find some sleep. But remember, you're better off fighting and hoping to win than putting your life in some desperate stranger's hands and praying that they don't end it out of paranoia. Their is no telling what another man wants.

      Anyways, you're better of moving from hotel to hotel and occasionally taking funds from a bank account instead of bruteing it out.

        Bad advice about always fighting muggers. I don't know anyone who has ever been robbed by a mugger without a weapon, usually a knife or machete.

        You're not doing shit against either of those without taking a trip to the emergency room no matter how tough you are or what kind of weapon you have, unless it's a gun.

    Ex-hobo here: I'm sad to see so few here that have traveled the hobo way. It's really disgusting to read the egotistical morons trying to give advice/talk about something they know nothing about. I thought we'd have a few people on this website who've lived this life, many famous people did at one time or another.

    Anyway you wanna know the BIG SECRET? You get used to it. When you have no choice you get used to it much quicker. It's pretty enlightening and freeing, changes you forever, puts you on another level then most people.

    I met tonnes of people like this fella when I was on the road, mostly offshoots of Hippys/Punks. You may ask me questions if you like.

      My go-to food was watery oats, I had a cup, a bag of oats and a jug of water. I'd make a portion when I was hungry. Hummus and Baggett is really not a great choice in my opinion, palm oil (hummas) and empty calories (white bread) spring to mind, if it was real hummas then that's not terrible.

      Also as somebody mentioned I did feel safer knowing how to fight and having a knife with me. Knowing how to fight improves every aspect of your life.

      I saw many beautiful things and met many beautiful people. And yes there were some very dangerous times.

    I hitched around the US for 5 months. slept in a weird place every single night. a big black guy asked if he could suck my dick near skid row. I said no thanks. he said "aight. well, you want an obama phone or some coke?" lol. people are nice as long as you don't wear your pain like a mask. I was never afraid once. even when people nudge me awake with their boot saying "you can't sleep here" I just wake up straight into saying "Sorry I'll leave" and they're like thank god. a month would be nothing as long as you pick a good spot.

    fuck one time I slept in an abandoned lot under a bush and in the morning I realize I'm right next to the damn parole office and there's a line of cop cars 6 feet from me across the fence. just got up and left.

    if anything, martial arts probably hurts you because strangers will see that you have ass kicking on your mind.

    one time in texas a bunch of feral dogs were barking at me for an hour. literally holding council over whether or not to kick my ass. I called their bluff and just waited it out till they left.

    even tweakers are not that bad imo. they'll just talk your ear off and introduce you to their friends who are like "who's this fucking normie?" lol

    10/10 best time of my life.
