Doug Henke sits on his bed in his sleeping tent, which is enclosed in at least three layers of heavy blankets, tarp and plastic. His camp on the Fox River north of Elgin includes battery-powered lights, a closet with hangars and shelves for his clothes, a sitting room with a propane stove and a "garage" were he keeps tools and other essentials he needs to live alone in the woods. He moved his old home out of Tent City, an unofficial camp where many homeless people live in Elgin, to a more quiet location to the north. Now he is being force to move out of the camp that took weeks for him to build.
