Well, I finally made it back to San Luis Obispo and now I'm going to turn around and go right back to (sigh) Santa Cruz. Soon as I got here other road dogs started telling me "There's noplace to camp anymore" "the cops are cracking down on everybody(the homeless)", and to top it off, supposedly there's some maniac running around offing street people. Funny how much can change in 6 months. Last winter here in SLO I was going to school, living in a feild with some other people in a sort of makeshift commune, eating for free, picking up $30-$50 a night recycling cans. and spending most of my abundant free time hanging on the internet at the computer lab. Possibly the easiest winter I've ever had. Now all of a sudden it's a warzone. And me, being a good coward, am outta here. Shame, such a pretty town--so much pyschotic energy. It's like visiting an exgirlfriend.
