At the end of June, 2003, I became voluntarily homeless!

The story is long, and I have many reasons for doing this. But, here's a brief summary. About a year prior, Pete and I began discussing the possibility of being homeless. After brainstorming many ways to do it and how to become accustomed to the lifestyle, it began to seem doable.

I had a good deal living at Chateau Rink, so I spent the next year there, researching the homeless idea the whole time. When it was time to move out of Chateau Rink, I implemented my plan, and, for a while now, it's been going exceptionally smooth.

I actually live at UCSB, in my office and in the labs. I sleep at the infamous Down and Out House, right across from the In and Out off of Turnpike. The inhabitants there, Troy, Jessie, Nate, and Chuck, have been very hospitable, allowing me to park in their field, nestled under a fantabulous tree.

I think it's a pretty safe lifestyle. No strangers have broken into my car or anything. The only bad things so far are trying to explain to people why I'm doing this and the stupid birds at Siddharth's house that peck on my roof when I stay there. Otherwise, my life is remarkably unchanged, reflecting the fact that I simply spent too much time at UCSB before this change in lifestyle.

If you want to understand my motives for doing this, or if you're considering taking the homeless plunge, please email me -- I think it's a fascinating subject.

We don't need no stinkin' houses!
