    Had a fantastic time in Long Island, NY with fellow Surfers
    from the ashes of Burning Kouch we are creating a new & exciting experience
    for the entire CouchSurfing community !!

    Limit of event is roughly 200 or so. But we will cross that bridge when we get there. ha

  6. steve ngo

    Is it capped at 100 ppl only?


    New York, NY, United States

    @steve, this even is not happening this weekend (there is a CS BBQ) and might not have a definitely venue yet. the usual weekend is sept 14 to 16 (2 weekends after labor day weekend)

  8. steve ngo

    Los Angeles, CA, USA

    @adamnewyork lol, bro. i never mentioned anything about the weekend. ;) im saying that the event stops bringing more people after 100 count.

  9. Nishi

    Raleigh, NC, USA

    If there is a wait list, add me to it!

  10. Douglas Concha

    Brooklyn, NY, USA

    So this event is capped or what? I can't "join the event," says its "at capacity".


    New York, NY, United States

    @steve ngo, I realize this. but the event itself is not certain, and the date is a big conflict. posting this event was premature, 1 year away. i cant speak for christian, or why he capped it, or even why he posted it. it doesnt make sense for people to RSVP a year ahead of time, because those rsvps are not reliable. no one knows their plans a year out


    New York, NY, United States

    @christian, not sure why you unilaterally decided after 5 years, you were gonna move this event to conflict with the BBQ. there is no reason we need competing events - we're not making money with this, so a little bit of respect is due. you inexplicably refused to even discuss your private event last year, but now that you wanna do something public, it's an issue. this is the kind of action that harms the CS community.

  13. Jeremy Keefer

    New York, NY, USA

    That is open event?

  14. Patricia Johnson

    Ringwood, NJ, USA

    Location camp ground??? Will we have electricity

  15. BRIAN_LA

    Los Angeles, CA, USA

    capacity reached? - how many of those who signed up months ahead will show up?

  16. Frido

    New York, NY, USA

    I am looking forward for it.

    We will release the location with enough time before the event. Capacity should not be an issue as long as reservations are made in time by the individual travel/tent/car/groups. This is not private property and all rules and regulations of the location apply and need to be followed.

    About the event:
    Last year in the light of the short noticed cancelation of Burning Couch I booked a camping spot in Long Island and published it and many peeps showed up. Even from Washington and North Carolina.

    It was close to the beach with hicking, bon fire, potluck, beerpong, moskitos, sunburn. There was were showers and toilets and electricity.

    We had an amazing 2 days of fun and decided alrerady last year to do it again regardless of other potential events that might or might not happen.

    We think there is enough time for camping trips, potlucks, pants off dance offs, etc at the same time. No need to get salty.

    Good things to bring:
    Good vibe, Tents, Isolation mat, insect repellent, warm cloth for the night, sleeping bag, food to share, water, lights, hammocks, batteries, speakers and music, first aid kits, more repellent, foldable chairs, drinks to share, things for BBQ, grills, charcole, beachstuff, positive vibes,
