Jessejo Magallon gives Veronica Sandez a kiss at breakfast time under the umbrella of the kitchen area. The encampment where five core adults live includes Carlos Urbano, his 60-year-old mother Elizabeth Urbano, Daniel Velasquez, Sandez and Magallon. Magallon claimed the area on the banks of the Santa Clara River as his years ago. Others have come and gone with Magallon calling the shots, but the five remain constant surviving off the grid of the city of Santa Paula.
