I took some daytime video of the Steel Bridge homeless camp today. I’ll share some stills from the video, then the video itself.

There’s garbage falling into Naito:

The storage unit has been placed. It has a Sharps dropbox on the side:

And we all got upset because the people who pay to live next to this wanted to lock the gate to their back doors. Hmmmm.


This summer I think I’m going to pitch a tent in Waterfront Park. I’ll have some solar panels to run a stereo, a cooler, maybe an enclosure for my dog, and of course a bike garage. It’s OK by the city, so why not live where I’ll get the best view in town every time I step outside my tent?


Why stop at a tent, if the city is not going to enforce their codes in parks why not just build a house and homestead the parks?
