IDK, man. To me, this is the MGM Tour, down in Culver City, USA:
But here’s the San Francisco version:
I want to live in Los Angeles
Not the one in Los Angeles
No, not the one in South California
They got one in South Patagonia
This was the promise, back in aught-twelve:
In 2012 the San Francisco Board of Supervisors enacted a new violation in the SF Transportation Code to address inappropriate parking of oversized vehicles on city streets. SFTC Section 7.2.54 prohibits parking a vehicle over 22 feet in length or over 7 feet in height, or camp trailers, fifth-wheel travel trailers, house cars, trailer coaches, mobilehomes, recreational vehicles, or semi-trailers, between the hours of 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. when SFMTA signs are posted giving notice.
And yet this is the reality, in 2016. (I’ll note that the one in front has the brand-name “BRAVE” written on it in large letters – that’d certainly be true if the owner/renter planned to leave it there past midnight.)
The millionaire homeowners of Fell wanted these rides gone from their view, but, well this is what they’re staring out when they walk down their stoops these days.
Of course this photo was made in the daytime, so maybe this caravan moves out every night to neighboring streets without the SFMTA ban? IDK, cause I’m sleeping during those hours, usually.
But actually, a ticket for just $110 sounds cheap compared with the cost of a tiny Airbnb apartment in the 94117 what could go for double that, easily, for one night.
I’ll have to do an RV nose count next time I’m skulking about the Panhandle after midnight…
You know, metaphorically:
California doesn’t really have much input on presidential elections (and even this year, we participate more by giving money, rather than by voting). If only Bernie had had more fuel in the tank…
‘Cause if you sleep in your RV in front of a house, its millionaire homeowners will, hackles raised, not rest until you are gone gone gone.
But churches are a different story – you’re less likely to have to deal with complaints to the SFPD / SFMTA. (You might trigger an internal debate about why-do-we-even-have-this-congregation-in-the-first-place, you very well might do that.)
Simply, church-goers are much, much less likely to call out the popo on you.
I’ll tell you, the same RVs I saw ten years ago parked on Post and Geary and Fell and Oak at night are now, after recently being chased away by new legislation, parked on Masonic and Presidio and Hayes, as here.
On It Goes…
As seen in Civic Center last week:
Now the font on the side isn’t comic sans, but it seems a little bit comical to me:
Didn’t realize we had one of these. Perhaps we received a little Homeland Security money to pay for it, IDK.
I’m sure everybody was impressed at its debutante ball / first “MCU rally” in Sacramento a couple years back.
