    For one person you can do 90% of that for 25% of the money.

    I would bet a lot less than 25% of the money.

    It’s miraculous to me what people will spend to live like they are in the trailer park boys.

    I looked up welfare payouts in AB & it's ~10k/year. $21.5k if you're on the AISH gravy train

    There's a whole subculture of people who customize vans and trucks to be habitable year-round. Many of them go out of their way to ensure that it doesn't look like people are living in it. Some of the builds look pretty cool, some are just ridiculous.

    Have a good friend setup (on GIS) setup a Telus $9.95 account and push it out over an amplified wireless antenna. Core of internet solved. Used solar panels, a new Lifepo4 battery, one base Ipad and one Steam Deck. HDTV that runs on 12 volt with bowtie antenna.

    I would think it would be doable at least entertainment wise.

    This beauty is down near my work. Note the TWO security cameras on the side and back. Not sure why you'd need that, unless it's to keep the crackheads out. Is that it?

    I'm seen enough Breaking Bad to know that that's a rolling meth lab. Security cameras are there to keep the crackheads from stealing the methylamine barrels.

    Beyond group robbery? How many barrels can we fit in Buster's Ridgeline?

    Police will occasionally go throw 72 hour notices on them - then they move 10', start again, but if they're keeping it relatively clean and not getting complaints, and it's insured/registered - they typically let them be.

    Income support is something like 745$ for a single person. And Alberta de-indexed that from inflation...Not exactly something you can even pay rent on - they 'allow' 330$ for housing. That wasn't sufficient in my adult life - I've never had rent lower than 450$ in the last 27 years. So - the real question here is how do we expect those who need welfare to survive - on 1/3 of a realistic rent?

    I don't expect them to survive on welfare, I expect them to get a job.

    Yep, minimum wage is now $15/h. $2400 gross per month working 160 hours. Fuck right off if you can't hold down a job at mcdicks and afford rent, food, and a shitbox.

    I don't think this sort of thing (rv living) is for actual poor people. This sort of thing is for people who theoretically should be able to buy single family home property and hold decent-ish jobs but they have been priced out of real estate. Poor people can't afford the gas, maintenance, or running costs.

    If not parked directly in a Walmart lot, I'd think an electric scooter would be doable for dips to the stores. If you have to move most RVs even once a week it starts to get expensive and annoying.

    But then again, you only have half a year of scooter weather.
