Cheers

Hi there,

I have a space for one person with little stuff. The reason is because I have a little dent in the back of my car and if I have too much weight it will rub against the back tire. loool. it's true. Otherwise I will take even two or three more people with me.
I live in Northern Westchester so if someone is interested to come along, more than welcome.

cheers,

Ahmed

If you can make it to Port Jefferson, (train, ferry) or are somewhere between here and Orient Point, I can hold at least one person in my car. If my friend isn't coming then I could take another person. Don't have a huge trunk though so pack lite.

I'm also planning on driving up from Philadelphia. I could come with you or drive up myself to pick people up.

Can you bring me and two of my band members from Brooklyn? We have a gig on Friday at 9 and need to be there with a small amount of gear. We might be able to come meet you somewhere. When are you heading out?
Thanks!

Late night, probably around 10, depart from NJ on Friday. I have space for two skinny people (or one chubby person) and can pick you up in Northern NJ and/or Manhattan.

Juan I understand having people split the gas/tolls with you on the ride up, but I really don't think it is right how you are charging people for space in your tent.

Tons of other people have happily offered to share their tent, which is what the CS spirit is about. It's one thing to say, "You are welcome to sleep in my tent if you share some booze or food with me", but to flat charge people is not what I thought this weekend represented.

Ok maybe I shouldn't have used the term "tons" but even the ride I am getting offered to share tent room without asking for a fee as well. So I have seen a handful of people offering tents.

I really don't like that you are asking us how much we spent on this trip, everyone is hopefully coming to Burning Kouch to contribute to eachother's experiences. I am bringing enough food, drinks, for me and others and supplies for an activity for everyone to do. And I am buying a tent just for this event. These are choices I made because I want to camp out and have a great time with amazing people.

So if you know anyone from couchsurfing and you all decide to chip in on a tent together, great. But if you are just straight up asking them to pay you for your tent every night (not that it's a bad price) I just didn't think it sounded right. Best of luck and I hope you find people that feel differently to share your tent with.

Always interesting debates on CS which I think is good but only when they are debates :-)

I might have an extra spot in my tent. Send me a message if you want to setup an interview ;-)

I am bringing an extra cooler. Anyone want to store food or ice? the cost is per square inch.

Any takers?

Hey Neo, sent you a PM.

Posted July 14th, 2011 - 6:11 pm by from New York, United States (Permalink)
someone from my car just cancel so I have a spot open. I'm planning to leave from Manhatten Friday at 5, pick up some cser and drive there. On our way there, we'll stop by stores to pick up supply (like food, charcoal, drinks, etc). We plan to bring our own food and bbq ourselves. Also, I'll be bring in some more stuff to play. I'll be driving back sunday night. We'll split everything, food, drive, drinks, etc.

So I'm looking for someone who is interested in the above. if you don't want food/drinks, I'll probably put you on a lower priority. If you are a vegan/vegie, no problem, I'm bring two "grills". One for vegie, and one for meat. You could just do the veg one. Send me a message and I'll make a decision by tonight. Hopefully we can ride together and thanks for reading.

Oh ps, not much space in the car due to the supplies and "toys" i'm bring. So please pack light.
