So this guy needs some help

Help This Homeless Guy replace his stolen gear

So the other night it was rainy as it normally gets here in Seattle. Me i have no problem dealing with rainy situations tarp et al. but this older gent that has been on the streets for a while and still has at least 9 months left before housing can help him, went looking for a dryer spot to sleep. all he had was 2 small blankets his pack with clothes, hygiene products, few other supplies (coffee, snacks et al) and some cardboard, so he wasn't prepared for sleeping without cover int he park like I.

This ended up bad for him. He went to an area he normally doesn't go to sleep at, and while he slept his pack with all his stuff besides his blankets was stolen.. This post is a call for those who follow my blog to help this guy out. will post receipts and the gear when it is purchased with donated funds, and keep you updated. like i said any help is appreciated and please share this. the faster the better for this man since he is out here with just his blankets in a trash bag now.

Thank you

Morning all

morning all.
well yesterday had to busk up diner and tobacco (in the rain mind you) and actually got told i should get a real job by this young (maybe 20) kid. man all i could do is laugh at him. even had to stop busking. he looked at me funny cause i was laughing and walked away in a hurry. What i found so funny was that at his age he has no clue what a real job is and will probably be out on the streets in about 5-10 years wishing he had some skill to fall back on like I do.

Besides that did ok only about 3 an hour hitting the ferry terminal walkway so that took me 3 hours for my needs and wants (about 7 for food and 2 for bag of tobacco = 9). thats 6 ferry unloads (3 bremerton 3 bainbridge). yeah should have made more quicker but mid week and all. on the plus people are getting used to seeing me and realize i am living on the streets and not just pretending so they are being more open with me and their wallets. overall not to bad second week. and coming up is superbowl sunday. Time for money and fun, hells yeah.
