#Vanlife and #Buslife Desert Grifters and Cons

#Vanlife and #Buslife Grifters and Cons

If you are considering #vanlife or #buslife, then consider your motivations for doing so, especially if you have a choice in the matter.  It is not as glamorous as all those impossible yoga poses on rocks would have you think.  You will not get the freedom you are being promised.

You will be a slave to poop and garbage.  Do you really want to shit in a bucket, sleep right next to it and then keep it around until you can find a dumpster to put it in?

This lifestyle requires a lot of rationalization. How much of your own dignity are you willing to sacrifice?

But there is another thing that you should be warned about.

There are individuals out in the #vanlife #buslive subculture who are not to be believed or trusted, especially the ones who tug on your heart strings to give them things for free.

You will encounter them before you set out on your journey, while you are doing your research

Here is how to navigate:

PREVENT YOURSELF FROM BEING TAKING IN BY

SOB STORIES AND DELUSIONS OF ALTRUISTIC GRANDEUR.

EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THE METHODS OF THE GRIFTER AND CON MAN.

REALLY EXAMINE WHAT YOU ARE SEEING and HEARING.  Start with distrust (which is not your hard wired inclination as a human with a human brain).

LEARN YOUR OWN WEAKNESSES Harder to do…Consider your own motivations for giving. What is the payoff for you? REALLY LOOK. Your own ego may hook you.

This book is a good place to start.
