One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been fortunate enough and amazed to...
Climb the pyramids at Chichen Itza,
Swimming with Dolphins at Xcaret Cancun,
Scuba Dive Hawaii,
Landed a helicopter on a Glacier or more precisely, asked the pilot to hover close enough so I could jump out and break off some ice for drinks latter.
Free climbing a 100 meter tower above the Oak st. Bridge,
Bungee jumping off a 50 meter bridge south of Nanimo @ night... sans pants;)
Traveled to some remote regions of Canada,
got chased by a grizzlies 8-0
Saw the aurora borealis clearly..!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you how to tie knots, juggle, spin a basket ball on one finger.
I believe everyone can teach:
"see one.. do one.. teach one.."
moreover "anything can be taught.. by the right person.."
I can show you how I respect common areas by using my towel to wipe up when I'm done in the bath, and keep the kitchen tidy for the next person that will come along.. please and thank you.
"A patient teacher can be amazingly uplifting!!"
What I Can Share with Hosts
With my future Host(s) I can off you the following... also, & especially my future Guest(s) FYI, to help mitigate confusion and disappointment, when possible, DO the following:
a.) working cell number, in advance: 1 - (Area Code) ______ - _______
b.) on time.. provide an (ETA) Estimated Time of Arrival.. within a 1/2 hour's kool.
c.) u soon... confirm your arrival.. between 24 and 48 hours of ETA is best.
d.) compress.. lights out by midnight unless agreed upon in advance.
e.) z E.. please don't bring home strays from the bar or where ever... just sayin'.
f.) me w/ a flaming fist.. unless your profile says "language barrier exists" I prefer english... I enjoy a good language lesson as much as the next guy.... but that's a whole different matter.. again, just sayin'..
ALWAYS HAVE A ~ 'Plan B' ~ as in:
Have a backup host, or a motel in mind.. everyone knows this is prudent.. however it's not kool to book two or three couches for the same night and go from house to house auditioning the Hosts... or take the first one and cancel the next one or two reservations... that would be a creepy thing to do...! If you were contemplating such a boneheaded move.... bad CS'er... go stand in the corner...!
& Finally....... if you want to impress me that you took the time to read or even skim my profile before you try to convince me that we could Hang out..
Please, Cut and Paste, or just write in your couch request Subject line, the following phrase ~
"I'm a little teapot short and stout" =))"
