So would you have some kind of setup in your vehicle that would allow you to sleep etc and take advantage of nomadic services (like trailer parks amenities and stuff)? (Do you live in the US?).

Yeah, I live in the US. I've only camped out of a vehicle for a few days at most in the past (a Toyota Corolla at that, and I set up a tent outside on the ground every night after traveling to a new spot). But a good setup to me would be a van, or a truck with a camper shell and a long enough bed, or an suv if it has enough space in the back. That way you can sleep in the vehicle wherever you go. Then from there you can pack the essentials, like your clothes of course, but also a cooler, a camping stove and some propane bottles, water bottles, food, dishes, hygiene stuff, etc etc.

It can be a lot of work (I know from experience), but I think once you do it for a while you can kind of optimize your routine. I haven't done it for long enough to anything about long term nomadic living, but from what I know you can take advantage of certain apps that tell you about camping spots and places to park, and park amenities are great to have too- especially if they have showers- but you could also bathe in rivers if you want to I guess. Also I've been to some camping spots before that have pretty terrible bathrooms/shower rooms... to the point where you'd rather do your business outside in the forest lol but if you're prepared that's no big deal.

I don't know precisely what setup I'm going for yet, it's likely to be an suv of some sort but I have to see what I can afford.

Somewhat off-topic, unsolicited advice from someone who knows blockchains well: Doge is not your friend, and using it as an investment vehicle is financially equivalent to participating in a pyramid scheme (and not far off from buying lottery tickets).

Yes, itís pretty much gambling.
Today a girl I really like had a Ä 10 note stolen from her bedroom.
It was her pocket money that she kept to bake something for her parents,
whom she can only meet every two weeks.
It is so outrageously mean to take exactly this money from her and not admit it.
Of course I am also sad because I had to see this girl being very sad
and because the consequences were sad.

But I somehow got also into a pessimistic line of thought
and see the world being so infinitely unfair.
In this case it was only 10 Ä and one unfortunate girl.
There is much worse.
Starving people without money.
But the same thing happened to the starving boy in the developing world and to the girl: Injustice.

I wonder why many people are so mean that it makes others unhappy.
But unfortunately you can ask yourself that all your life and won't get any good answer.
Something has changed (how fast it can work!):
It turned out who stole the money: The guy took it to get his drugs.
The police were there and he received two reports, one for stealing money and one for illegal drug possession.
That is really deserved.

But my thoughts on world justice remain.
This is how I feel since I (and my siblings) no longer live with my parents:

Physical and psychological violence have finally stopped.
In retrospect, I wonder why I deserve these things to be done to me.
That's why I am still often sad (why so many pains and fears in my youth?).
But things are slowly getting better with this question and the memories
(I will also soon be in contact with a child psychiatric clinic, which will help me well).
After all, at school I no longer have the feeling that I am all alone with my problems with my upbringing.
I have already told my class that I no longer live with my parents and I am feeling much better at school.
My eyes are still sick, tomorrow I finally have an ophthalmologist appointment.
The eye disease limits me and my joy in life.
Perhaps my father is directly responsible for hitting me hard on the head once and my eye problems started shortly afterwards.
In any case, my parents are to blame anyway, because they left me alone with my problems
for 4 years and rarely took me to the ophthalmologist.
That will have a meaning in court.
Here in the living group where I live now, everything is perfect, I get along with the other young people and I feel safe!
I can hear everyday loud music and that makes me feel also much more well than before.

Feel free to post questions if you have any.
Well, yahoo. My parents sent me to a private school and are now saying I will have to pay them back for the money they spent on it.
I am not going to college until I do. I don't know what sort of Job it will be, but I hope I get a decent one.
I have been feeling ok I guess. Im over the really bad stuff as of late.
I have to put it out there that I miss my boyfriend. Waiting until next school year feels like an eternity.
I will be going to camp soonish. I hope all works out there. Gonna try and program some stuff.
(Its an outdoorsy camp, but I will have my ti 84+)
Tell tater I said Hi.
I have no access to the internet here. I am currently on a library computer, something my dad would be PISSED about.
I don't really have friends here, and can't really make them. Just waiting for camp.
Did I mention to tell tater I said hi? I think tater would appreciate that.
I really just want to get away from my parents and my house. Camp does that. School did that. But for now, I am stuck here.
I don't have much to do all day. I am bored out of my mind most of the time. I am trying to get myself to program or draw, but I have lost the motivation to do so lately.
Well, my time is almost up, so I hope this gets to the people who I want to see it alright.
Tater will really want to hear that.
If only I were here when you popped in. The days I'm not on my computer, you pop in. What timing. Triple oofiedoodles. Anyhow, I do appreciate you saying hello after these couple weeks of inactivity. I missed you so much!
I miss you, did I mention that? You are such a smart and kind person with all these little and big talents, from creative programs to creative art. I know you can brave through these next months. I have been thinking about you and your situations. I care about you, because you are one of my first online friends, and you are so amazing. I wish we had more ways to communicate, but at least when things get better, we will have much more time to talk. Thanks for being here!
...and thanks, Cemetech, for being here :p

Take care, and virtual hugz!
(Also, look in your messages.)
Virtual hugz from me as well! Razz

Good luck, have fun at camp, try to have fun at home (even if your parents make it impossible), and try to find motivation to work on programs! this is coming from someone who is so lazy that they almost never have the motivation to work on programs
Also, your parents are making you pay for the private school THEY put you into? That's just wrong.
I look forward to seeing you at the end of the summer!
This is more of a "Why your life sucked" post, although honestly it was far less bad than what life problems that some have had in this thread, and in my case the final outcome that ended up less bad than expected. Anyway in late 2017 I got PTSD from years of stuff that happened in real life and I eventually became unable to work. Given where I live this did not cause many financial problems, though, because apartments are cheap, but PTSD made social interactions significantly more difficult especially in real life during its peak and it got so severe that the simple sight of a calculator, a NES game, a Super C store or other various cues from my previous city could trigger symptoms. Eventually I just moved in the middle of the night within a 2 hours notice and left everything behind (and never got most of it back).

Anyway I gotta live with it now (along with the other mental things I got) and I can thankfully look at calcs or retro games without setting off my symptoms (the trick is exposure but in very very small, increasing amounts at a time). I also got social housing, which is actually not bad considering regular cheap apartments are in generally poor condition or have extremely noisy neighbors. I'd have gotten social housing regardless of if I could still work or not, though, given how terrible other landlords are in general.
