#Urban Camper on Oct 22, 2014 :
Hi there, I want to try urban camping as an alternative to renting accommodation ..

Urban camping is when you live discreetly in you car/van in and around city/urban locations..
It can also include live back-pack portable and rough sleeping in city doorways, parks and rooftops etc..
but that's a little too extreme for me ..

Car/Van urban camping is my plan of action ..

Can this be achievable in Christchurch NZ?
