About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To open our home and to be able to see more of the world while getting a local's perspective.

ABOUT ME

We are happy to host people who are looking for a place to stay in Colorado Springs and will respect our home. We love how much more fun couch surfing is than staying in a sterile hotel and we've met great folks. We also love the insider/local info that people share when staying with couchsurfers and we hope to share that with people staying with us as well.

PHILOSOPHY

Respect others and their space and you will earn respect back. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We have mainly hosted but have also stayed with CS in San Francisco, San Diego, Vancouver, BC, Bend, OR and Salina, KS. We enjoy hosting but also look forward to staying with more couchsurfers in the future.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We've met great people and love the pay it forward aspect of it. Please complete a couch surfing request and don't just send me a message if you are interested in staying.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hiked 700 miles on the Appalachian Trail in 1997 after a broken ankle threw a wrench into my thru hike plans. It was a great time and there is something amazing about having everything you need on your back.
