Lodging > Couchsurfing
Couchsurfing.org, a travel web site that matches travelers with hosts in cities around the world that are willing to put a verified person up for a few nights' stay. If this is the option you'd like to try, you should first sign up for Couchsurfing.org, read their getting started tips, make a profile, get verified, and read the tips on how to be a good couch surfer. Portland has its own Ambassador of Couchsurfing, Ms. Lolly Rae, check out her profile and contact her with any questions you have about the Couchsurfing.org community. Although she can't put up all of you, she can give great tips on using Couchsurfing.org in the Portland area. Also, feel free to get in touch with Open Source Bridge core team member and avid Couchsurfer Jimmy Eastman with questions as well.
