Hey there! Sorry to be all "lemmie-sign-up-and-ask-a-favour", but a friend suggested I try posting here to see if anyone in Portland, OR (or Seattle next week) might be able to help me out with my current Couchsurfing mission. I'm already in Portland, but the two Couchsurfing offers (through the CS website) I had before getting here ended up falling through, and I'm in need of a place or places to crash for the next few days. I'm planning on being in town until next Wednesday or Thursday (February 25 or 26), before heading to Seattle for a couple of nights en route back home to Vancouver, B.C. (...to catch a flight to Montréal), so if anyone has a place I could stay for even one night, that'd be greatly appreciated. I'm looking for somewhere asap. :)
I'm vegan, run a couple of Meetup groups in Vancouver, and am the director of the forthcoming Vegan Summer Camp (http://www.VeganSummerCamp.com
). I'm also a freelance journalist and would be happy to trade writing or editing services (including of cover letters/resumes - I've got a great track record of getting people hired!) for your couch services!You can check out more info about me via my personal website (http://www.CarissaThorpe.com/about
) and/or my Couchsurfing profile (https://www.couchsurfing.com/users/4636110/profile
), though you'll have to sign in to Couchsurfing to view it.
