Coming 9/21 - 9/25 - if you could host, cool; if not, no big deal

This is not my usual preferred couch request method but I figured it can't hurt. My flight lands around 8:30pm on Friday (so likely that's not a good hosting night - maybe it would just be a hang out and have a beer night) and then I need to be at the Vancouver airport the evening of Tuesday, 9/25. I'm not desperate nor would it be a burden for me to pay accommodations for few nights so consider me a low priority couch request. It is last minute but it's not an emergency so of course I'm not going to post on that other group.

I have both surfed and hosted though I haven't done either recently - life happened and I got overwhelmed with couch requests a while back. I am respectful of space and work a normal job during business hours so understand the need to respect time as well. I'm pretty independent - it would be nice to do something with a host or people nearby. At least low key because that's the point of CS. But I have been in situations where the only thing I could offer a person was literally my couch, a key and maybe 4 minutes of my time so I get it - not perfect or ideal but life happens. I'm a vegetarian, not allergic to animals, can bring a sleeping bag, and can cook some.

I have traveled through several parts of Europe, the Carribean, Mexico, Central America, and of course several parts of the US. I am going to Southeast Asia this winter.

Even if you can't host, we can hang out. See you soon!

I had a couple no-shows this weekend so have room in my home if you didn't find a couch for tonight yet
