Lawns to Gardens Episode 4: Homeless Survival Tips
In this episode, we head out with Railer guitarist DD Desade who lived on the streets of Portland for eight months. More and more people will be adding to the streets as Peak Oil kicks poor people in the teeth even harder. It is a worldwide problem.
DD is an entertaining tour guide for the ultimate in street living and homeless survival tips. Watch and learn! He told me he had absolutely nothing to his name. He ate out of trash cans. He begged for money. And he was free.
He was free from any responsibility – and if he could tolerate the cold and wet conditions, he could survive and just get drunk all day. It was bittersweet – and he knows over five Iraq veterans who have taken the same path – choosing freedom and drugs/alcohol over rejoining society.
Maybe some of the homeless are just trying to work things out and they will figure out ways to deal with their pain. For now, why don’t you watch this 15 minute documentary on Homeless Survival Tips. You might just learn something.
