About Me

I am a Yosemite Ambassador. I serve humanity so you may experience the best of what the mother has to offer. Yosemite is an example of how beautiful nature can be.
If you don't read my profile I will know it so please do not bother sending me a request, it will be ignored or denied!
If you don't have a nicely filled out profile,
if you are only looking for a free place to stay,
if you have not contributed to this community,
if you have nothing to offer me PLEASE do not ask to stay with me.
I am only going to host people based on what I write below.
I DO NOT host for an overnighter, find a motel, this is not a place to get a free place to stay.
I live alone on land I bought in 1987 when I was 25 as raw land, I hacked a farm out of the wilderness. I have hundred mile views with complete privacy that hundreds of millions have seen, I have had film crews from all over the world come to my front yard to film me.

I'm a big, friendly, outgoing, nice guy. I'm very entertaining and knowledgeable about the area I live in. I love humans and I love Yosemite. It's my honor to be able to help whomever I can, experience Yosemite.
I was born in the barrios of East Los Angeles. It was my dream to live in the mountains, I came to live and work in Yosemite when I was 22 in 1985. I married into the Yosemite Indian Tribe and have two Yosemite Indian children. I worked and lived in Yosemite from 1985 to 1994 My children both work there and are making their careers working in Yosemite.
I am a very successful YouTuber, if I host you, you must know you may be in my videos


Love God the Father, love Earth the Mother, Love Humanity, Mother and Father's Children, love yourself, love and appreciate life.
Love your fellow man, walk gently on Mother Earth, connect to Spirit.
I am a vessel of Spirit a servant for my fellow man.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am only able to host when everything lines up. Since I have become so famous there is just way too many requests to keep up with. If you are interested in surfing with me you must read my profile carefully and follow the leads I give you, there is a test at the end. There is no point in sending me a request if you do not read my profile and follow the leads I give you.
I mostly only host long term volunteers on my farm but when I have a farm volunteer here I will with scheduling host Surfers, 2 days minimum and who come by car so they can take me and my volunteer around the park.
I NEVER host for just over night!

Couchsurfing is not about a free place to sleep but about connecting to like minded humans, it can't be done on an overnighter.


I've hosted 100's of people, (not everybody leaves references), I don't do much surfing myself so I am very selective as to who I host as the CS community has grown so much. If you read my references you'll see I have given enormously to this community and have asked for very little in return.


Photography, videography, computer art, martial arts, Spirituality. Saving the planet for humanity. Communal living, alternative energy, self sustainability, gardening, growing your own food and cooking it, living off the grid are my goals.
This is my YouTube channel. I have been named in the top 10 most iconic YouTube videos of all time. https://www.youtube.com/user/Hungrybear9562
If you don't know me ask 5 people if they know who Double Rainbow Guy is, one or two most likely will.

Music, Movies, and Books

I host people on my farm these ways.
Bring food or treat me to eat when you eat, drive me around in your car and let me show you around Yosemite.

If you don't have a car, you must come for at least 10 days to volunteer to help on my farm. There is a lengthy application process for this.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I fought professionally in the Cage, No Holds Barred against a giant who was much more experienced than me. I flew in helicopters to fight fires. I did the Tyrolean traverse in Yosemite while being suspended over 1,000 feet in the air by Yosemite Falls. I lived in Yosemite Valley for several years. I have become a meme. Now when ever anybody in the world sees a rainbow, they think of me, they say my words. I have forever affected humanity's consciousness. Thousands of people have sung my words to me, not from a song I made or sang. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vheFCJX7tv4

Teach, Learn, Share

Gardening, sustainable living, permaculture, cooking, Native American Spirituality, Martial Arts, photography, videography, YouTube.
This is important! My whole being is about making video and photography. I video and photo everything and every body who is in or comes into my life. If you come here expect to be in my videos.
If you do not want to be in my videos please do not come here.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a very unique, unforgettable personality, so much so that I have become crazy famous. I am a very loving being, everywhere I go I meet people and one of the most common things I hear is; Wow, so nice to meet you, this has made my day, week, month, etc. When I am hosted it's really common for my hosts to invite their friends and family over to meet me and to hear my stories or have me give them a video show of my work. I have 55 million views on my YouTube channel and there are hundreds of millions of views about me on YouTube.
If you host me you will have a story for life saying I stayed with you.
I am a great host and guest both.
Please, in any request to me use my name as Bear and tell me your favorite movie so I know you read this whole thing. Also requests that let me know when you're coming this way, where you will be before here, where you plan to go after, what mode of transportation you have, how long you have to see Yosemite and how many in your party will be given preference for responses.
