Metro News: Calgary’s ‘Urban Nomad’ approaching his debt-free goal after a year of RV living

From the writers at Metro News.

It has been just over a year since Geoffrey Westlock went NFA – no fixed address.

After incurring more than $15,000 in debt while in film school, Westlock decided to take drastic measures to pay off the debt as quickly as possible.

Westlock hatched a plan. He moved into an RV trailer, roaming around the city from parking lot to parking lot, dubbed himself the “Urban Nomad,” and began blogging about his journey.

Although he’s proud of his fiscal discipline, Westlock said it doesn’t make his situation any less wearisome.

“It is really frustrating I have to do this to get this under control,” he said. “I will have spent over $50,000 over five years to pay back $17,000 worth of credit card debt.”

Westlock said his living situation has made him very aware of other people who are going through difficult times, often living out of their cars. He said it pulls at his heartstrings, but he has come to the realization that, given his own circumstance, he can’t help all of the people he meets while living out of his own vehicle.
