Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hosted and surfed a lot in college. I haven't been as active lately, but the spirit lives on!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I stayed at the kookiest MIT frat house/mansion made of and fused with inventions by genius student designers.

I rode my bicycle over 1000 miles with my best friend. We headed south from Philadelphia to Atlanta and with the help of couchsurfing learned the true definition of Southern hospitality.

I hosted for the better half of college life with the assistance of fellow surfers and/or housemates Joles , Jefe , Pablito and Greggers .

Check them out, they are good people.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Rode bicycles south for 3 weeks with my best friend when I was 20. We stayed with CouchSurfers, camped on the side of the highway and met random people who offered us shelter and food in exchange for stories and appreciation. Amazing.
