I survived on 69c banana when starving. Go 7-11!!! And a highlight was when local church denied early entrance I found some canned pears at a Long Beach door step but having no can opener I stabbed on it a steel fence-post spike. I felt like McGyver. But the wait paid off as they gave lavish food after mandatory church service.

In reality it was brutal. But still I love the experience. You can only walk so long and if you don't walk you will die in cold. The bloody police thought I joined some Islamic gangs and I had to report them upon reentry. It was post-Florida; so in one way I can fully empathize with racial profiling.

Thanks for asking. I hope you are doing well.
Ok Boomer.
