What Are Some of the Obstacles I Face?

The obstacles I face vary. I sometimes have a hard time finding a safe place to sleep at night. I am sometimes alone or with others when I go to sleep.  

Water supply in certain areas can be a problem, depending on whether it is accessible to homeless people. All human beings need clean and safe water as a basic necessity for things like cooking, cleaning and drinking. Fortunately, shelter is not a big obstacle for me because I know how to build simple structures and turn them into a cozy shed.
