How to Live Rent-Free in San Francisco: Get an RV and Then Park It In Front of a Church (and Not a House)

Friday, June 19th, 2015

‘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.

As here:

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.

As seen in Civic Center last week:

It’s a giant ice cream truck, with less horsepower than some Honda Accords.

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.

Coming to Your Neighborhood Soon: Giant RV’s! – Chased Away From Certain SF Streets – Overnight Parking Whac-A-Mole

Friday, February 7th, 2014

So SFGov is banning RV’s from parking overnight on certain streets, but people are worried that the RVers will just set up camp a block or so away.

We’ll see how it goes.

But you might need to prepare yourself for more of this:

The $100 a day you’ll save by not paying rent in the 94117 can be used to buy a new battery now and then.

And an RV is way cheaper than paying for AirBnb, right?

It Takes a Village (of SFPD Cops) to Arrest a Union Square Felon During Christmastime

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Man, the cops are all over the place in and around Union Square these days, the better to protect the all-important holiday shopper.

So that means SFPD vehicles parked all over, as a show of force for newly-arrived felons, including your Mobile Command Centers One, Two, and/or Three, and beat cops just standing around the corner of Fifth and Market answering tourists’ requests about which direction is the Metreon, that kind of thing.

And if you’re a drug dealer, the SFPD will literally tell you to conduct your business a few blocks up Market near Turk, you know, in the Twitterloin containment / enterprise zone, where you belong.

A half-dozen cops, one felon, Market Street betwixt Fifth and Sixth:

I’ll tell you, anyplace what has a neighborhood association named after it is no place for your Bounder RV.

I mean, these NIMBYs have the local police station captain’s phone number on speed-dial, so why not instead try the Panhandle or Post Street (near Scott) or SoMA or someplace else where nobody cares that much about you?
