About Me

I am a nice easy going guy..... Updated July 2022

This following was posted to me...

Due to the impact of Covid-19, we need your immediate help to keep Couchsurfing alive....

Well I am a swamp Yankee ... look it up if you care to.... but it is basically going to tell you I am conservative with my money... and since I have never traveled and used couchsurfing.... I do not feel the platform should be charging hosts who have never used the website to find other hosts/lodging.

With that said.... I broke down and spent the money for one month due to someone requesting a night stay last minute and I didn't have time to notify him differently..... If anyone in the future wants to check if i can host then you are welcome to send your money to couchsurfing to pay for my month and I will respond.

I have hosted many people and it seems all were happy staying at my house. ... I also disagree with the cookies and data collection but that is another disagreement with the management who become greedy as time goes forward.... Newportnorth12 can find me at the popular google mail.
Sorry to those who requested a couch in the past since the costs went up to the hosts, and I didn't get to reply.
I think it is enough to supply free housing without paying for it as well, but I am only one voice maybe you'd like to send or support that thought to the management.

Thank you

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Is this Couchsurfing or Facebook? Why do I have to have a face book account to leave a reference for others?... This must be something new because I have left references for others before. Now it is worth 35% of my score before I can leave a reference??? I don't need to belong to Facebook or other social sites to be a nice guy and host.
