I did...I got at least 4 requests to use my "couch" but unfortunately all 4 times I was out of town, it figures.

A friend of mine (who referred me to that site) has in fact used it a couple of times. Also, when I went to Thailand, another couch surfer offered his place and we were in contact for about a year. He was very kind and his wife was very sweet but since I ended up going with a friend, we didnt stay with him. I would definitely give it a shot...

I just had my first couchsurfing experience as a couch provider... It was just great. The surfer came in as a stranger and left as a soulmate. It's certainly a very good way of travelling although I understand that it's much easier for a man to overcome sleeping at a strangers place then it is for a woman.
