Tent City USA

Tent cities haven't gone away, though we don't hear about them in the news. Simply google
tent cities in America and see what you get. Wikipedia even has a list and links for the biggest ones. Tent City Slide show

While I've lived in tents while backpacking, I think this full time situation would be quite difficult.
Showers, water, cooking, crime and boredom are just a few of the problems I see.

One shanty town rising up has people living in tool sheds. Of course, these sheds are nearly new and provided by the town trying to keep homeless people off the streets.

Its almost like a SHTF scenario, for these folks especially, or end of the world real life scenario.
