Backpack Bill is homeless and lives in a "hooch" along the Ohio River in Covington, Kentucky. His hooch is a homemade house that is built from scraps which he found along the riverbank and in dumpsters in the city. He has been homeless for several years. There are no homeless shelters for men in this city.
