Where is the best place to sleep in my vehicle?
I had been evicted from my house recently and tomorrow is my last day to move my stuff into a storage unit i had got. I don't have enough money to put a deposit on a new house(I rent) so I will probably be sleeping in my car with my dog. Im currently not employed either because I go through a temp service and it is hard for me to take any of the jobs they offer because the notice is less than 24 hrs. I live in Iowa and Im wondering where i am and am not allowed to park my car and sleep. I'm an 18 yr old female so Id also like some suggestions on where would be safest. I also would like to know of suggestions on what to do with my dog when I begin working. He is a 10 month old pit. Giving him to someone is not an option for me. I have a mental disorder which he helps keep under control. If anyone has any advice, please let me know. I've been on my own since 16 and had the issue of being homeless once as well, but I wasn't in quite such a mess as I am now. I'm already in debt and owe money to the city and the hospital and I just turned 18 about four months ago. Thank you for any advice.

i assume you are asking where you can park your car to sleep not actual where in the car to sleep. you can probably park in a 24 hour store (walmart) parking lot just park in the last row and the cops/security will just assume its a customer/employee car. basically anywhere where there is not a no parking sign should...

i would try to sell all your stuff you cant fit in your car and head to a major city far away with more options for work. when i sleep in my car i just put the drivers seat all the way back. rest stops parks and behind strip malls work pretty well. when the cops stop you just say sorry you were tired and find a new...
