SF Occupier Looking for Roommate to Share Tent for Cheap Rent

The Occupy Movement has given us reporters plenty of fodder for good stories -- some informative and others entertaining. And while it appears Occupy SF has ceased to exist as a camp since police raided the encampment on Wednesday, there are still plenty of amusing stories to tell.

For instance, this San Francisco guy is desperate to reoccupy the Financial District, which is why he is looking for someone to help him set up his tent  -- and occupy it with him. So he did what any normal searching San Franciscan  would do: He posted an ad on Craigslist.

Although it's far from your average "looking for a housemate" ad.

Here's his sales pitch:

"I want a roommate to help set up a new camp and watch my back in case the NAzis with the GERMAN dog come back to kick me out. I also have a video camera we can share in case they harrass us.

Aside from sounding paranoid, here's a little more about him: "I am clean and keep a neat tent. I shave and shower every other week, we can alternate so some one is always in the tent. My girlfriend will bring food so we don't have to leave."

And if that isn't enticing enough, the rent is cheaper than a cardboard box.  "$1.00 rent is due upon our

agreement and is due on the first of every month. It is not refundable

as your dollar symbolizes your dedication to the tent and our cause," according to the ad.

Here's the full ad:

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
