Eddy and Jody spent nearly ten years living in he storm drains under Las Vegas. Being homeless they found that the tunnels offered the best chance of security, privacy and in many ways a normal life. In the tunnels they were able to have bedding and possessions in a way that they wouldn't have been able to maintain had they been living above ground. The realisation that they didn't want to die down there led to them slowly getting things together so that they could move out. Acquiring things such as a computer and scooters for transport were crucial in allowing them to widen their employment opportunities and get them regular work and the ability to commit to renting somewhere. In 2011 they moved into a single room in Siegel Suites motel. They are now looking to get a mortgage and take their first steps to owning their own property.
