    Hey boys and...er.... boys..

    I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I'll be traveling to the US in February 09 and need some help with accommodation.

    I'm staying in Vegas from the 13th to the 17th of Feb, then going to Dallas Oregon (where I have accommodation sorted) until about the 21st. Would be good to meet people in Portland, OR to spend a night there.

    Then heading to San Francisco until about the 26th, would LOVE to make some friends there and see the sights. then off to LA until the 3rd of March.

    If anyone in Vegas, Portland, San Francisco and LA can help out with a couch/spare bed/room in their bed for me to sleep on or even just feels like being a tour guide, PLEASE drop me a line soon as I'm finalising my travel plans this weekend.

    Just make sure that your reservations are all for DALLAS and not THE DALLES. You'd be surprised how many trucks show up 150 miles off course, drivers puzzled that they're unable to find the street address they're looking for.

    You should check out Couchsurfing.com ; it's kinda like "facebook for frequent fliers," to accommodate people traveling so that they can find a place to stay while actually hanging out with local people and getting some of the culture instead of being cooped up in a hotel room. My roommates and I have only had good experiences with hosting (and we've hosted dozens of strangers from all over the world).

    Hey guys,

    my trip is approcahing fast and thankfully I've got my Accomodation sorted for all but Los Angeles.

    If anyone knows anywhere cheap to stay, or alternativey, if you've got a couch (couchsurfing is a cool concept but I really want to make sure I stay somewhere gay friendly) or a spare bed, then hit me up.

    my flights are all finalised, and I'll be in LA from the 26th Feb to the 3rd of March

    hit me up if you can help out

    Cheers

    Stu
