Responsible stewardship of my home, bike touring, absurdifying the situation.
I like people who put effort into their relationships, community, and world.
Leave the world in better shape than when I found it, without making a lot of fuss about it.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Formerly nomadic, now sedentary, have always been welcoming and welcomed. I work by day at a public water agency. If I'm not out in the evening I'm puttering about making improvements and muttering.
I'm not specifically looking to hang out with you when I host you, but if we both want to go to the same underground punk show, kismet!
Also, 12-15 mile hikes are about my speed.
I was couchsurfing from long before the internet existed. You used to have to show up in a town, go to a tavern or cafe, and talk to people to find a place to stay. Or stay up all night, or sleep at the bus station or in a park/cemetery.
creeks, coffee, whiskey, photography, bike tours, finding out what is really going on.
Music, Movies, and Books
I will ask you about local bands from where you are from.
Teach, Learn, Share
I know a fair bit about preserving food, so depending on time of year there may be canning, krauting, or curing going on. House has first permitted residential greywater system in Oakland, and a garden.
Depending on timing, there might be a volunteer tree planting for you to go to with a group I work with.
I have a bear canister you can borrow.
