Traveling scientist looking for a couch - Oct 17-19

Hi Vancouver CSers! I am a glaciologist coming to Vancouver for a meeting at Simon Fraser next week. I have sent several requests, but haven't found a place to stay yet. Hoping this might help :) I am looking for a place to stay Thursday and Friday night, Oct 17 and 18. Ideally someplace accessible to the bus/train that would take me to SFU.

I would also love to share a meal or a drink on Thursday (Friday I have a social event with the meeting). I can tell you all about studying glaciers and climate or if you are totally not into that, maybe we can talk about yoga or wildflowers :)

I look forward to meeting you!

Yes, we can host you as long as you are not afraid of dogs as we have 3 of them. I'd be happy to learn about glaciers. We have one in Whistler and we went on an Alaskan cruise and saw lots of them there. We are right by the skytrain which will take you to where you take the bus up the mountain. I'm assuming you are at the main campus on Burnaby Mountain?
