This Google Employee Lives In a Box Truck

When Brandon accepted a position at Google, he realized that most of his out-of-work life would be spent commuting to an apartment he would use for pretty much just use for sleeping. Although he could technically afford an apartment, like many in the Bay area, he’d be spending most of his income on rent and utilities and wouldn’t be able to pay down student debts or save any money. His solution? Move into a box truck.

Why a box truck and not an RV? Brandon wanted to maintain a low profile (although with his blog receiving over 6 million views in first 2 days I’d say he’s not that successful).
