Couch Surfing....What

So I am member of a online community called couch surfing (www.couchsurfing.com). Sunday night I got to host someone for the first time. I've been a member for close to a year now, and nobody ever took the opportunity to stay on my couch in one of the most action packed cities ever, Ogden. Apparently Ogden isn't a hot spot on the traveling circuit, go figure. Anyway, this dude from Oregon needed a place to sleep for the night, he is moving to Colorado and need a place to crash to break up his drive. He said there weren't a lot of couches available in the Ogden area, hmmmm I guess he had to settle for mine. Well I'm still breathing, my neck wasn't slick in the middle of the night, this guy was pretty cool. Ok actually he was a like a way cooler version of myself. First he just got his masters in French, ok I'm working on my degree in French. He spent a year in France, holy shit I'm trying to get to France for a year. He just decided to sell everything and move to Colorado, no job, just a place to set up base camp. Helllllllo, I've a had that bug in me for a long time, and if I can't go to France then, au revoir Utah. So this dude definitely is cooler then me, he did this all and is 3 yrs younger than me. Bastard!!! No, so all in all my couch surfing experience was a great success and hopefully I can host others, because when the time comes, I hope to be loungeing on others couches. Karma right, that's what I keep telling myself.

Nobody could be cooler than you, Dash. He may have accomplished "your" dreams faster, but nobody can hold a candle to you. Couch surfing sounds pretty cool.

I'm jealous. I live in Orem, and have been desperately wanting to host someone. I really want to learn the secrets and talk to an experienced surfer before I embarked on my own journey, but as it turns out, Orem is also incredibly unpopular.

So jealous of you.
