Why I’m on Couchsurfing


local CS meetings and use CS when travel


I have hosted about 300 CSers and 35 youth thru Lions Club Youth Exchange Program. I have served on the Lions committee for this for 10 years. I have surfed in about 90 different houses in South America and Mexico. I try to attend the local events when not having to work. My wife is in CSing too.
