I will also be using BeWelcome now and encourage everyone to contact me here too http://www.bewelcome.org/members/jmitch421
I hope Couchsurfing can get back to the great things that made it a huge part of my life the last few years but seems like everything is going downhill so I will be giving BeWelcome a try as well.
I plan to see every country and territory in the world or as much as possible .. also currently trying to reach the highest point of every country in the Americas!!
I go out a lot ,like to try new stuff, and travel new places, meet new and interesting people. I'm a good friend and always willing to help out anyone.
I'm down for whatever.. whenever.. life is an adventure especially mine! I have high goals and no matter what i work hard to succeed in everything i set out to do. I plan to see the whole world .. I currently am traveing around the world for an undetermined amount of time. I love to experience new cultures and see how other people live, their customs, traditions and what is important in their lives. I'm into all kinds of outdoor activities boating, kayaking, hiking, fishing, mountain climbing, SCUBA diving or just chillin on a deserted island beach. I'm never bored I live my life to the fullest, i want to experience everything the world has to offer.
I'm not about touristy stuff i like to see what is real from remote nature to the heart of the worst ghetto and everything in between .. castles to slums .. luxury to poverty.. any country on earth or any culture .. under the surface of all the oceans to the summits of the highest mountains .. I'd probably roll the dice and risk everything to live my dreams lose it all and risk it all over again .. I've been shot at.. stranded in the jungle.. missed avalanches.. survived 3.5 hours floating in the ocean after a shipwreck ...slept on benches, couches, beaches, behind buildings or not at all .. met some of the coolest people from all over the world and I'm just getting started .. the world awaits!...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
driving through the Pyrenees and down the south coast of Spain, wreck diving in the Florida Keys, spontaneously writing the lyrics to an award winning song in Mataram, being at a higher elevation then anyone on the continent while on the summit of Pico de Orizaba the highest mountain in Mexico, white water rafting the Pacuare river in Costa Rica, standing over red hot lava Volcan Pacaya Guatemala, hiking to deserted beaches in Cambodia, visiting the Holy Golden Temple in Amritsar, exploring the temples of Hampi Karnataka, rowing along the Ganges in Varanasi and viewing the cremations while reflecting on the finiteness of life, standing on the rim of Santiguito the most active Volcano in Central America, chewing betel nut with the King of Boti, traveling the stunning Karakoram Highway in Pakistan, convincing a Vietnamese soldier to take a photo with me who moments before had me at gunpoint, being cursed by black magic in Sulawesi, traveling overland from Indonesia to India in the most indirect way possible, talking my way out of jail in Sri Lanka in the former Tamil Tigers headquarters, 100th SCUBA dive in Sipadan totally naked, standing on the rim of the impressive Kaietuer Falls in Guyana, seeing a ghost in the forest in the jungles on Northern Vietnam, witnessing Tibetian sky burials in Litang, visiting the most militarized border in the world at the DMZ in Korea, exploring the maze of streets of the ancient city of Multan, viewing ancient mummies in the mountains of northern Luzon, climbing huge 100ft tall dunes in the Gobi desert, drinking kava with the village chiefs on new years in Fiji, finding the grave of my 7th great grandfather first from that part of my family to come to America 300 years ago, seeing the Spring Temple Buddha the tallest statue in the world in Henan... too many others to list or that I can not mention in writing
