Question

okay, i think i have a quite bright idea here. we've all heard of global freeloaders, right? that group that links fellow travellers together for free homestay options... well how about we do it... but through swapping apartments. i mean a lot of us are already pretty comfortable with one another, actually, there are a fair few of you that i would trust staying at my pad. so, that's my suggestion. you want to come visit san diego for a week with eva, space? fine, you guys can use my cottage (great location! - haha) and dave and i will fly up and stay at your place. we could leave suggestions for restaurants and cool stuff to do fo eachother on our respective kitchen tables. get the idea? and we have members worldwide. this really only works for us punks that have matured to the point of our own living spaces, but still. i thinkn it's a great idea. i'm kind of type-rambling now, but i hope you get the picture.

i'll advertise first:

very charming 1930's 1 bd/1 ba cottage , hard wood floors, centrally located, laundry on site. just 15 minutes to downtown by bus where you can connect to all the major sites in san diego, including tijuana (but why? haha). we even have two (albeit old) bikes you can use. pretty good beaches, and i tell you... two beautiful cats too. yes, they're part of the deal... less you arrange something with a neighbor, hahaha.

really though - let's, it'll save us a lot of money.

Great idea... Alas, I have no place of my own to swap, but if anyone wants to, replace "San Diego" above with "San Francisco" and swap the cats for "charming old parents who will regale you with conspiracy theories."

yeah joan, but I know you guys would screw around on my bed and skank up my sheets.


just kidding, for YOU I wouldn't mind doing a little extra laundry, 'cause I love ya. hahaha It's actually kind of a good idea. I don't know when I would be able to take off but I would trust some tpunkers to stay in my place. Small studio-ish apartment in a very nice area of Seattle, 4 blocks from a nice beach at Lake Washington, close to bus routes and a great yard to chill out in. And a reeeaaalllly comfortable queen-size bed. And the deal is a package with my 2 roommates (commonly known as a "Dog" and a "Cat" but they don't think of themselves that way.)

yes, it would take some clever arrangement... and sensitivity too, if pets were involved, but it would save a fair chunk of change and a kind of cool spin on visiting a city. for the most part, i think we all know where everyone's located but let's do a role call.

by the way, we always travel with rubber sheets so it's all good about the bed - HO!
(haha - remember that part in national lampons x-mas vacation!?)

Surprise, Arizona

As edward Abbey said about Phoenix it's "An ugly oasis in the middle of a beautiful wasteland"

But if you need a place to crash here, I'll hook you up!

I will be gone for a long time but that means giving up my place too, until I get back.
