'Avoiding the Knock — Stealth Parking Tips and Tricks'

From Jessica Bruder, writing in the New York Times in an essay titled "I Lived in a Van to Write the Book Behind 'Nomadland.' The Fear is Real.":

Bob Wells, 65, has a popular video, "Avoiding the Knock," and has been lecturing on the topic for ages.

I first heard him talk about it seven years ago in the Sonoran Desert, at a gathering called the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous.

He shared tactics for "stealth parking," such as creating police-friendly alibis and making your van look like a contractor's work vehicle.

At first listen, I thought about how clever and resourceful those strategies were.

But after hearing them a few times, I reached a second conclusion: In a better world, people wouldn't have to go to such lengths to stay out of sight.
