My 1968 owners manual actually says there are many places where you can just pull off the road for the night, or ask a friendly farmer if you can stay in his field - yeah right...in 1968 I guess. People are way too suspicious now. You certainly should be able to spend a night on a public street if you're not bothering anyone, but in reality, someone is bound to notice, and tell you to move along 'just because'. I'm surprised you haven't been rousted more often.

In this day and age, I'm really suprised that they didn't taze you first and then send you on your way...

Still lots of good LEO's everywhere. However there are getting to be more and more of the sort that will taze you first and then arrest you for falling down and twitching. Seen some pretty poor examples show up on Youtube. What shows up in the bad examples is the LEO's poor people skills.

I am a couple of towns away from Kent and to be honest, I don't even like to drive through there. I grew up in Boston and Kent is a rough 'hood in some places...so I am sure the police are on the lookout all the time. Had a friend who lived in Kent and her truck windows were broken 3 times before she had enough. Kent does not have the best of reputations, and that is from a newbie to the state (been here a little over a year now, and yes, I still drop my r's. As in, yer freakin' retahded!). There are lots of nicer places close to Kent where I would choose to boondock...that aren't a designated area completely trashed...blech! Poor thing!
