Sad news about a CSer who loved hitchhiking in China
Posted December 22nd, 2012 - 2:57 pm by from Nanning, China (Permalink)
I have sad news to bring to those of you who met a Russian hitchhiker named Dima, or DIMS, or Daxiong. He has surfed in China a lot, so I suspect that some of you reading this have met him. He was such an outgoing guy that if you met him you wouldn't forget him. He and his girlfriend Xiaowen had been living in Chile, in South America. I heard from her that Dima and two others disappeared on November 7 while hiking up a volcano. They weren't able to get back to town, so they spent the night somewhere on the volcano. A snowstorm came during the night and they haven't been heard from since, even though searchers looked for many days. Here's an article about it: http://yekaterinburgnews.com/daily-news/chilean-authorities-vow-to-continue-searching-for-missing-russian-tourist/3177/. Dima was a great guy, a very experienced Couchsurfer, and he will be missed by the many whose lives he touched.

I've been trying to post this message in the Nanning group, because he met about a dozen CSers in the two times he came here. I'm not able to post there, as the blue Post Here button doesn't show up when I click in the box to make a new post. I wonder if I'm doing something wrong or if there is a glitch or if CS has disabled new posts for the city Places.

I saw that. Because a google search showed no signs of the men being found, I assumed that his girlfriend had logged onto his account.
