Never Seen So Many Parked Liveaboard-RV’s – Kicked Out of SoMA, They are Now Way South of SoMA – Life On The Streets

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

One after the other:

I’m not used to seeing this number in this area, which I guess is the area from Bayshore to the Lower Third. Hundreds of RV’s parked all over:

Anyway, I’ve never seen this, in all my years…

How Many Months Should Donors Give SF’s Famous RV Family to Leave Town? Getting a Lot of New Parking Tickets Now

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Here’s your background, from last month:

SF family’s RV was their home. Then it got towed 

SF donors help wandering family rescue their RV home from tow yard

So yeah, they’ve got their RV back, but the RV is still here, racking up a brace of new parking tickets.

And, per an area City Family member, they once again owe a total of “a couple thou” in parking tickets/penalties.

Who’s been giving out these tickets? Well, the SFMTA (elements of which can prolly spot this white whale from half a klick away, on a daily basis), but also the SFPD, sometimes in response to numerous NoPA, SoPA, EaPA neighbor complaints, and I should say these contacts to Park Station started in June 2017, if not before.

So that means that their RV could get towed again starting at pretty much any time, AFAIK. I mean, unless they have a deal with the SFMTA or some other part of SFGov. (And if I know my DPT, penalties will be kicking in with a quickness and new tickets that aren’t protested will go final and five unpaid / unprotested citations will get you on the boot / tow list and then parking this beast in a well-trafficked area with lots of SFMTA license plate scanners about means that you’re not keeping a low profile, at all.)

It’s operational, at least over short distances. Once you’ve seen it, you can’t not see it – sometimes I see it multiple times in a day.

If owned this RV, I’d get it out of San Francisco ASAP.

Frisco’s “Complaint-Driven” Anti-RV Parking Ordinance isn’t Working, So Far – Here’s the Proof

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

Or, IDK, maybe it IS working, but all I know is that you still see a lot of RV’s parked on Fell during the hours of the new ban.

I’m sure if you call and call, then maybe somebody will do something, FBOW.

Anyway, maybe there are fewer RV’s parked on certain streets these days, but all I hear from people is that the Anti-RV Parking Ordinance isn’t Working, in the sense that lots of RVs are still around at places and times where and when they aren’t allowed – just an update here…

Oregonians Make Themselves a Temporary Home on Busy Busy Fell Street

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

You’re not supposed to park large vehicles such as this at night at this location anymore, but I think enforcement is “complaint-driven,” at this point and I’m not going to complain.

Entering your home from the fast lane of Fell is the tricky part…

Just as Whalers have Factory Processing Motherships, Bikers have This – Or, What This RV Needs is a Camper Out Back

Monday, January 30th, 2017

So you had a bike, then you no longer had it, for some reason, and then parts of it ended up on the roof of a long long trailer parked under the 101 freeway in SoMA:

Multiply that by 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for a couple decades and that adds up…

Going on the MGM Tour, in Frisco!

Friday, November 18th, 2016

IDK, man. To me, this is the MGM Tour, down in Culver City, USA:

But here’s the San Francisco version:

The RV Owners of SoMA Sure Seem to Have a Strong Interest in Bicycles, or Rather, Bicycle Parts

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Oh look, three in a row:

One wonders what’s inside these RVs:

Perhaps more bike parts?

Perhaps from one of your bikes, Gentle Reader…

Some of these RVs are live-work space for bikes thieves, oh well:

So Much For Frisco’s Oversize Vehicle Overnight Parking Ban on Fell Street – Still Life in Mobile Homes

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

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…

The Pro-Bernie Sanders “BernBus” (Metaphorically) Runs Out of Gas at the Fell Street DMV, San Francisco, California, USA

Monday, March 21st, 2016

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…

All the deets.
