    Federal Benefit Programs

    The salad mix is just a bag of lettuce. I know I buy it to. A head of lettuce now costs around a $1.89. I think everyone is trying to cut down. They have to.

    What about on top of your car? Is your bed off the floor so you can store things under there?

    New to vehicle dwelling. Uncertain about living out of a car but want to learn!

    It's really simple. I did over think everything last winter. But it was my first time out. I took way too many clothes, blankets, first aid stuff and cooking stuff.

    Port Bolivar has miles and miles of free beach camping. Took the ferry to Galveston rec center for showers. I spent last winter there in my van. Very windy though. This year I'm going to magnolia beach. Port lavaca and that area.
