    cheese I think it is a tent and fire pit. There have been several in the Raleigh/Garner area. The homeless will oftentimes set up camp in the wooded areas near the city so it is closer to walk to places.

    Can someone explain to me what the hell is an "informal encampment"? I mean is like a KOA campground or is like a FEMA camp?

    there was a girl from Goldsboro that died a few years ago. They found her car but never found her. I always wonder when people are found in Raleigh if its her. That is where she was living at the time.
