About Me

Remember that one time you really wanted to hang out with someone cool? Or maybe you recall that time you couldn't reach the top shelf at the grocery store? I would like to present the 2 in 1 solution to these problems:

Joshua Tesch, our fun-loving, existential-crisis-having, top-shelf-reaching friend has a long history (approximately 26 years!) of human interaction and life experience that has molded him into the modern marvel and self proclaimed airline pilot that he is today. Consistently searching the great perhaps for meaning, he is anxious to share his philosophies and discover exciting new ideas through whomever comes across his path. Joshua's current preference for travel is hitchhiking because he is yet to become an actual airline pilot. He lied. But he will never lie to you.

I live and travel with my girlfriend, Heather, who has spent most of her life in Utah and looks forward to seeing what the world has to offer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am an amateur hitchhiker/traveling enthusiast.

I love being a part of the Couchsurfing Community. I am a strong advocate for this community and hope to consistently travel or host travelers.

Working to come on top in spite of the craziness of 2020.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2015 I hitchhiked from SLC to San Francisco.

2016 I packed out for three months, hitting each US coast.

I attended my first Rainbow Family Gathering in July of 2017 in the Malheur National Forest in Oregon.

Summer of 2018 hitched to Seattle then flew to Alaska where I spent the summer in Seward. Travelled back with FranFran through Canada to Eugene. Bussed down the coast to San Diego, hung out in Slab City, then flew back to SLC

Teach, Learn, Share

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."

What I Can Share with Hosts

Laughter. An opportunity to brag about your life and the things that you have learned. I am very open and a great conversationalist. I will likely do your dishes.

Canada, Mexico, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

United States
