I would not disagree with that except stuff just got stolen from a jacket.

The only way someone is ever going to be able to steal my cards/cash or cellphone is if they mug me. Most pickpockets usually only go for a wallet in a back pocket.

...The money would've been, I'm sure, stolen from the jacket when I was not wearing it, when it was under my cot's mattress...Perhaps when I was in the john :( .

I meant he should be wearing the jacket.

Maybe the fanny pack (British: bum bag) isn’t a bad idea after all.

...When it came down to that Hott Team person suggesti g that J could, possibly, have not long to live...I thought of the money. E en if it wasn't enough to live on a long time before dying, it could maybe get me some months of fun, anyway - by which I mean reading, and catching up on movies I've never seen, etcetera - Real wild fun, right :( .
I could do that somewhere less expensive than the Bay Area/Santa Cruz - but where would I go?.How would I get there? How would I check it out - or just go blind :( ?

The area around Eureka isn’t as expensive.

...Thank you. How would, again, I look at that - Or if I wanted to go, get there! I can't drive! :| If I got a place, and wanted to get comfortable furniture and bedding, so I could at least be comfortable in my own home :cry: - how would I go shopping for this stuff? And how would I get in installed? It would be very expensive! :(
Now, my right arm has been aching, as if it's in danger of getting csrpsl tunnel syndtome :cry: . I'm trying to rest the arm, I got some extra bedding at Goodwill as a cushion for it (Though I'm straining, I think, the arm now writing this:) - but I'm this tight, small, metal bunk. If I just had a wide bed to rest.in :cry:.
I am so slow-walking now, with my basic area very costrsined :( . A highlight for me is going to one of a very few grassy spots in parks here in SF near me where I can.lie on the grass and read or rest when it's nice - But there's only a couple of spots like that by a pole/small tree/curb I can use to try and get myself back upright when I'm finished :( - with my crippled lower half :( . However,.Santa Cruz seems to have no spots at all like that in public land :( .

I looked up "furnished apartments in Eureka" on my phone and found lots of listings. I think that is what it amounts to. Pick a few areas and see what is available in each. I would say take a bus to wherever, but you have all that stuff in storage so transportation is going to be difficult.

...I am in this shelter and can't take a night off and come back, I'll lose my place. I don't have the money to go to Eureka (or anywhere), and if I went there, given my being handicapped and not driving in a place entirely new to me, how am I supposed to get around? Or pay for somewhere to stay temporarily while I'm looking...

I did not mean going on a scouting trip. You would have to find out what is available as far as a place to live and local transportation etc and then transplant yourself to whatever city seems best. If you can not come up with any place that seems suitable you will have to stay where you are.

I saw an apartment for $395 there.

It never gets over 80 degrees in Eureka.

That is incredibly affordable, especially for a coastal city. Looks like a cool place to me. Looks very self contained like my town.

The reason why I thought of it.....is because I might retire there.

I'm having more and more difficulty taking the heat of New York.

...Bluntly...Global warming, eh? :lol:
Eureka is rather in the pot-dealer/Mendocino zone, isn't it? Speaking of, uh, " blunt " :P :oops: .
Actually, IIRC, I had a long-ago pen pal in Eureka. I will admit that I was picturing a rather hot, dry, far from water area, and I thought that was maybe, weather-wise, not for me...

Eureka is right on the ocean. It rarely gets above 80, and below 35.

Sounds like a good plan.

From what little I saw of it I am not sure I want to learn more and end up pining for the place.
