OMG! is that it??? That's where I have to sit and wait to find out what happens?

I just found this thread today... I wasn't paying too much attn to the date stamps obviously - I still thought it was early Dec that I was reading.

Excellllllent TR. I did the couchsurfing across the USA back when I was 22-24 (early 90s). It was harder to network back then w/out the web, so options were less avail to us couchcampers (I guess the verb changed, huh?) ...tho things are different nearly 20 years later, based on what I read, he could have made it in any decade!

I will most def check back to read this thread!!!

I'm so glad you heard from him! It must have been wonderful to hear his voice.

kerouac, could you please e-mail me if you're still interested in possibly meeting the Scruffman? He may be coming through Paris in the next few days.

I have more to add, but have had a headache for three days and working extra hours (probably related). Get to work this weekend as well, lucky me. I'll write it up shortly.

For the others: since it has been determined that I will not be in town at the right time, I absolutely hope that I will be in the city the next time Scruffman passes through Paris.

I hope that artnletters will be able to transmit to me his impressions of the city in its current 'frozen solid' state, so that I can make the necessary corrections whenever the time arises again.

I am of the school that believes that Paris can be wonderful at any time of the year, but it will be much easier to appreciate in clement weather. (I am flying to the U.S. in a day or two, and the weather is even worse!)

Actually, kerouac, plans are currently in flux, so it might come together after all. I will be in touch when I have an idea what's going on.

For the rest of you, I haven't forgotten about you ... more story coming soon.

Apologies if you felt urged by my question - the purpose was a) pushing up the thread and b) expressing interest.

I have never been as adventurous as your son and will never be, so I am reading your report with a mix of fascination, admiration and sometimes bewilderment.

Oh just you wait, quokka ... He's had a very interesting time lately - I guarantee it's nothing you would have done in your most adventurous dreams!

I never mind knowing there are still people following the story.

I'm still here too. Looking forward to hearing about the interesting time - hope that's not the "Chinese" kind of interesting!
