I rode along with our campus landscape director this morning as she checked for any more fallen tree limbs. As we passed along the north parking strip next to the chapel, she suddenly stopped and hopped out. There under a couple of bushes was this:
She immediately recognized this pile of bedding as most likely belonging to a homeless person. The stick you see in the picture was used by Kevin, one of our students who works part time on landscape. He was adamant about not touching that pile with his hands. There was also this wrapped in the bedding:
A can of handi-wipes wrapped in a hand towel and the loose wipes laying around told us someone had been using this as outdoor toilet paper. Ugh, a pile of something wrapped up and stains on the blankets also confirmed this.
So into the gator it went, piled up so as not to touch Kevin in any way. We don't believe this homeless person actually slept in this location, it is too public, too many cars go by as well as walkers. But it may be a place he thought to stash this for a time and planned to come back for it.
Totally something new around here.
