I don't have a couchsurfing account, mostly because I'm too lazy to constantly keep the house clean enough for guests.

But, I have a couch & 1-person mattress available for PPK'ers. Bazu and pandacookie have used it! I promise I will clean if people come! I have 3 cats though, so if you have allergies that might be a problem.

Hi! My boyfriend and I are moving from Minneapolis to Seattle, but we have kind of a complicated itinerary. Anyway, we are looking for a place to stay in Tacoma or Port Townsend or anywhere in between for a night or two. We will have a giant truck.

We're both on couchsurfing:

Would anyone be willing to host us for a couple of nights or have suggestions of couchsurfers who might be able to host us?

I'm kind of in love with the idea. I'm hoping to use it for when I go to LA in January. When I move to a different place I'd love to host, also.

Anyone want to be my friend on it or vouch for me? :)

Yay for one more PPK couchsurfer!

About vouching though. It's supposed to be something you do for people you really feel like you can trust, and if they are a great host/surfer. So it should be used sparingly!

Yeah for sure, I think I just used the terminology wrong. I was just thinking something in that friend-y section on the left, not the one on the right. :)

The thing on the right is references, which you can leave for someone you've hung out with, hosted or surfed with. It can be good, bad or negative, and in my opinion should be honest and given every time you've stayed with or hosted someone. Vouching, is the "ultimate trust thing", and should be used as I wrote before.

Have fun surfing!

(err the truth is I was looking for a place where to complain about a guest I was about to kill so this might not be the appropriate place -nevertheless you considerate and thoughtful vegans are still welcome!) :P

^cherry on cake: he used this laptop without asking and obviously saw this. I'm cursed!

(now I feel bad! I'm such a terrible host!)

actually the guest was not bad. But I was too tired - Couchsurfing can be nervously demanding sometimes

well, in your defense, he used your laptop without asking, so yeah. kinda, he is a bad guest.

A good guest shouldn't cause you to feel like you want to kill them--even if you're tired! And they also wouldn't use your computer without asking.

I might possibly have a potential trip to Portland, Seattle, and/or Vancouver coming up in July or August. So if you're in those places, you might have yourself a couch surfer who will cook you dinner and bake you cookies! The trip is in it's real initial planning stages, so it might not happen. but knowing that I have a place to stay would help convince me to do it!

I was just searching for this thread.

I was thinking of traveling a bit this year, for a few days. on my own. and thought about using couch surfing. but if someone on here is on there that would be so much more awesome!

where are you thinking of going? Bristol isn't much of a tourist destination (although we seem to get a fair few backpackers in the summer) but we could possibly give you a floor to sleep on!

Post subject:  Re: Couch Surfing PPKers Unite!

Anywhere really. Bristol sounds like fun! Ive only been to London, Canterbury and Oxford (and loved those, would go there again, too), while I love the UK.

Whoa, this is super cool. I'm trying to plan a little vacation/roadtrip over the summer for me and my boy, but we don't have lots of money to spend on things like hotels, etc. I was planning on camping and sleeping in the back of my van, but spending a night or two on a couch would be awesome. I'll have to set up a couchsurfer profile.
I live in Towson, MD, close to Baltimore. I was thinking about going to New York City, or somewhere more southern.

nyc couches i could use too... that would pretty brilliant..

and I slept on pretty horrible floors. in London I slept on a tiny piece of floor where I couldnt strech out my legs and had to get up if someone opened the door.

I'm coming to the US for three months (Feb 15 - May 11). I think I will stay in California and Arizona, but who knows! My plans are loose/non existant so if anyone here lives and hosts in those states, let me know and I might just send you a request!

I never actually did the travelling I planned to do in 2013 but I'd still love to. Sadly I can't host any PPKs (or anyone) myself at the moment because I'm between flats.

Post subject:  Re: Couch Surfing PPKers Unite!

Omg how cool is this thread! We don't have an extra bed at the moment but we will have a new couch soon and I would love to offer it up! We live about 30 minutes from the majority of vegan restaurants in Seattle, so we wouldn't be as close as someone in the city but still an option! I would also LOVE to be able to travel some new places for a few days.

I will check out the profiles listed, but is anyone still participating?

Author:  VeganinBerlin [ Sun Feb 08, 2015 7:41 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Couch Surfing PPKers Unite!

As I said I don't have a room at the moment but I probably will in the future. And I could still show you around and maybe help find a couch at my family's place (but that depends on how long and when).
