1. Park Somewhere Safe
Safety should always be your #1 priority. If you don’t feel right about it, move on. You won’t get any sleep worrying anyways.
2. Stay Quiet
Try to blend in to your environment. Don’t make it obvious that you’re in the bus. Keep noise to a minimum.
3. Leave Early in the Morning
When parking in neighborhoods, try to leave before people start driving off to work. This way you can avoid confrontation and you can catch an awesome sunrise and surf sesh.
4. Have a Clear Path to the Driver Seat
Always clear a path to the driver seat in case of an emergency, where you can easily start or stop the bus immediately.
5. Check for “No Trespassing” & “Private Property” Signs
This is pretty obvious but always check your surroundings.
6. Move to a Different Location Each Night
Don’t stay at the same location each night to avoid suspicion from locals.
7. Plan Ahead
Have in mind where you want to stay each night. This will eliminate any anxiety that may arise from not knowing where you will be camping each night.
8. Clean Up & Have Fun
Respect the location you camp at. Leave your area cleaner than you found it. Remember, every moment is apart of the adventure. Even the midnight knocks to move locations… Have fun!!!
