#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?

Prices are anywhere from $150-200+ per week for a 1bdrm flat. Good luck for those looking for cheap 1brm flats that are in reasonable condition. Does Christchurch expect everyone to endure awful communal living as the only alternative to affordable renting? Highway robbery. As usual.
