When An Automobile Serves As Home

How to find shelter in a wealthy suburban county without paying rent or a mortgage.

"The most recent Homeless Enumeration from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments tallies more than 15,000 homeless people in the region. Of those, about 2,000 live in Fairfax County, Va. I am one of them."

"I have been spending my third bout of homelessness since May 2005 in the Big Wagon."

"During the day, I am among you, taking special care to seem no different. I bathe, shave, wear clean clothes daily, and otherwise keep a low profile. That requires effort."
