I am Rebel, do-gooder, out to right the wrongs of the world. considerate of others feelings, understanding and welcoming.
We host people from couchsurfing.com, warmshowers.org, workaway and WOOFing. Guests that stay longer then one day we ask to volunteer 1-3 hours a day in exchange for their accommodations. Mostly people help cook, clean, garden and lawn maintenance and make the place better for other guests.
We are 18 miles north from Missoula all highway, easy to find, but still in Missoula county, right on HWY 93 North at mile marker 13 behind orange cars.
We are an hour or less from 7 different lakes,4 rivers, the Nation bison range, fish hatchery, hiking and camping, and 3-4 hours from Glacier Park and 6 hours from Yellowstone National Park.
We are 10 minutes from the EWAM Garden of a 1000 Budda's,
Orange Acres is a CouchSurfing Community Center, The Orange Dharma Station
We welcome people of all races, sexual orientation, faiths here. I am a Shepherd for the Universal Life Church Monastery, we believe we are all children the same Universal God and have the right to worship in any way we like long as as it does not harm others. We believe in helping others above all else. Pay it forward. Do on to others as you would like them to do to you. Everything happens for a reason.
I am a libertarian and love to debate politics and religion but I can agree to disagree and will like you regardless.
I have a guest bathroom/shower and laundry, a large community room with wi-fi, a guest computer, keyboard, guitars and amp, TV DVD and VHS, cards and board games, and kitchen for cooking your own food.
There will likely be other couchsurfers here.
Outside we beautiful views, we also have a campfire pit, horseshoe pit sometimes I might break out the above ground pool, or you can take a dip in the creek. Come help me feed my chickens, sheeps rabbits dogs and cats!
Bring your food and beverage,my kitchen has some plates and pans , a toaster oven, rice maker, microwave, sink, fridge, BBQ and stove/oven. We also have a free food pantry if you have no money or just forgot to get something from town.
If your starving usually I am happy to find your something to eat too,
If you are a person that spends all their money on beer and drugs and then want someone else to be responsible for their place to live and food to eat, we are not for you. but if you want to help out i am glad to feed you.
I also may be able to come pick you up in Missoula also if you don't have a car!
I can put with anyone for 3 days, if I like you I may invite you to stay up to 20 days, If you pull your weight we might keep you for 6 months, maybe longer. but we cant make you any promises until we have had you here.
I live with my 3 dogs, 2 sheep , rabbits, 18 chickens and a assault rifle. Women are very safe here, I am a very nice guy who does not drink or use drugs. I passed back ground checks to volunteer with big brothers and sisters, and to obtain a concealed weapons permit.
I welcome actors and actresses, Musicians, foreigners, builders engineers and explorers such as myself. Peacecore, Military, retired military, Sea Shepard's, always welcome. We are more hillbilly redneck then eco friendly, but we welcome all walks of life and do use a lot of recycled materials in our building.
No crack heads, sierra club members, thanks. Some of us enjoy the outdoors with a motor.
don't wear patoli oil in the guest house, that stuff stinks forever.
Dogs and children are welcome on a leash .
Sorry I only speak English.
It is not necessary to pay for verification on the CS website to stay here. but we will leave you a reference when you leave and would appreciate the same.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
As an ambassodor for the couchsurfing project i go out my way to inform people of couchsurfing and help couchsurfers who are stranded or encounter problems while traveling or couchsurfing, as well as providing a couchsurfing community center where many surfers can get together.
I have met such great people on couch surfing. Our couch surfing center has hosted over 31 people at time. its great to meet new people and see those people make new friends with other couchsurfers here. we also offer a workstay program to people wishing to stay longer and/or people needing a place to live while they find jobs and housing.
I have had guests stay overnight and I have had guest stay for years, and some come back every year for Montana's beautiful summers.
we are also on woofing and work away.
Dancing, scuba diving, Karoekee, I don't drink, smoke or do drugs but I do go out ato dance. I have atv's, limo and a boat.
- board games
- outdoor activities
- scuba diving
Music, Movies, and Books
I love old movies, and older country, swing, and jazz. top 40, meditation and elevator music.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
