I'm really not a fan of dirty kid couch surfing coalition and the Couchsurfing app seems to be more for tourists and uh, "normies" for lack of a better term lol. Anyone know of any other places to find a nice comfy floor or couch space?

Hi SG. Kind of funny that you would answer me and now I am replying to you :)

But anyway, Global Freeloaders is another such site, although it's response rate is probably even worse than couchsurfing which is abysmal

That's kind of the impression I get as well. Hosts there (understandably) want to know when you're going to show up and when you're hitching/hopping/etc., you don't always know when you'll get somewhere. I've successfully used Couchsurfing a couple times but it was always in a scenario where I knew exactly when I was arriving and leaving.

As for alternatives, there's BeWelcome, which a lot of people switched to when Couchsurfing went downhill. There's also Warm Showers, which is for bicycle travelers. Trustroots was made by the same people who did Hitchwiki so it might be your best bet for likeminded people but it has more users in Europe than the US.

Couchsurfing sites have been pretty hit-or-miss for me. The big sites like Couchsurfing have so many users that you have to write personalized messages to a dozen people in each city before finding a host. The smaller ones have less users but that also translates to less hosts, which makes it harder. It's been fun the few times I've done it but it's not something you can use reliably everywhere you go.

^awesome!! Thanks man I'll be sure to check those sites out and see if I have any luck. It's amazing we even have one place like this where dirty kids and other "unconventionals" (again for lack of a better worded term) can be trusted based off human kindness and an understanding of our lifestyle. But it'd be really nice if more places that provide similar services for more conventional travelers had compassion and understanding for our style of travel even if they don't completely understand or agree with it. If only the world knew

I'm a few months late to this thread, but does anyone have an invite for Trustroots? It seems like a better site than Couchsurfing, which I've been using a bit and like, but it can be really... full of finance majors and the like. I would really appreciate an invite, thanks all. : )

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $110.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

We are moving the jamboree to New Orleans this year due to some personal disagreements between myself and the lead organizer of the slab city library. Details can be found on the Jambo information thread.
