Couchsurfers in the Forest!

Saturday, October 25th, 2008 by Marie

A few of our recent visitors directed us to the amazing social networking website, couchsurfing.com.  The website links travelers to hosts that have a couch (or bed, or floor) available to stay, and does an such amazing job of reputation management that the only stories we have heard of couchsurfers are fantastic.  In general, couchsurfers listed on couchsurfing.com are responsible, kind people who offer their home to other travelers, and in return can find free places to stay while traveling themselves.

We thought the idea was so great that we decided to sign up on the website and host a bunch of couchsurfers for a one weekend event.  The event allowed couchsurfers to meet each other and to enjoy a break from city life in the forest.  All of our volunteers worked really hard to provide our guests with food, hospitality, and fun.

Normally we don’t host couchsurfers because we generally have paying guests.  But we think that an event once a year to bring couchsurfers together in the Bosque seems like a fantastic idea.

The event was about 50 people large, and gave us some great experience in hosting large groups.  It was a joy to have so many people around enjoying the forest.
