WOMAN who lived out of her Toyota Prius for over two years has shared what happened when she got a dreaded knock from a security officer.
Nikki Delventhal, a YouTuber who documents her and her dog's life on the road out of her 2006 Toyota Prius for her 734,000 subscribers, camped out her car in peace for over two years.
After a few nights of camping out of her car along the Oregon coast, she finally experienced a knock from a private security officer.
From the coast, Nikki took her companion, Camper, into Sisters, Oregon for a coffee and breakfast before heading into the town of Bend.
Bend has her and Camper's favorite dog park, Pine Nursery Park, which is about 19 acres.
After over eight hours of play for Camper, Nikki decided to shop for dinner at a 24-hour Walmart.
With dinner out of the way, Nikki and Camper got ready for bed.
As she was just about ready to end the day and change into her pajamas, she heard three knocks on her window.
Throwing her clothes back on as quickly as possible, Nikki was sternly told that she couldn't spend the night in that parking lot.
"I don't really understand, I've slept here hundreds of times before," she said to the camera.
To console herself, Nikki decided to take Camper to Cracker Barrel.
"That was insane, I think that officially means that I'm a car dweller or a van lifer, right?" she said.
"There's like four things that have to happen to be officially initiated: you go a few days without a shower, someone offers you their spare change, you eat a meal with a fork you got off of the floor and never washed, and finally, the knock."
After their Cracker Barrel visit, she was able to successfully get some sleep before hitting the road.
