Couch surfing tips

Ive been doing it for a while now, heres some tips for all you adventurers.

First and foremost: the travel bag

Backpacks are a goodstart
make sure its not a cheapone, your gunna need something sturdy
clothes:
2 sets of your finest jeans
7 boxers
7 pairs of sox
10 t-shirts (your gunna lose half of them)
toothbrush
toothpaste
soap
shampoo
razors
babypowder
deodorant
nailclippers
condoms
bandanas
gloves
beanie
belt

This is a full weeks cycle, laundry every sunday, If you have a friend with a washer and dryer thats a score. 5-10 bux a month should be a fair rate

hygiene/shelter:

there might be a time where you might not have a roof to crash under, dont be shy to use public restrooms/showers

I slept in one of those parkslide tube things for a while, not that bad actually, and it hides you from the elements/cops

just make sure you dip out early cause the cops will come

blanket n pillow, dont need it, use a nice sweater/jacket i double up on my socks when its cold, tie a bandana around your neck loosely, and tuck the bottom into your t-shirt, now put the bandana over your mouth, breath in through your nose, exhale from your mouth, all that hot air will warm you up nicely.

Keep your shoes clean! an oldtoothbrush and soap and your rockin and rollin.

You can look like a mess, but if your shoes are nice and tidy it makes a good impression.

Friend circle:

This is key for surviving AND being happy!

make sure you have their numbers written down, and make sure you treat them well, example...do the dishs, take out the trash, mow the lawn, feed the dog whatever, just show the love in return. Always make sure that the floor or couch that they may happen to rent you for the night looks better than when you arrived.

Get a prepaid and an android
android for camera/web/etc (download free wifi text/calling)
prepaid for texts/calls

Smile at everybody you see or meet...I cannot tell you how much help ive had because I was a good sport.

Keep your fingernails clean and your chin up. It is always nice to see a man walk proudly.

Food:
If you have a job..great if not, then barter is an excellent way to be fed.
go to any mom and pop shop, muffler shops, mechanics, petstores etc, they need chores done and you need food, make a deal and try to line deals up for the week so you dont go hungary.

DONT EVER beg or ask for money, you are a man so act like one. Pull your own weight.

Cigarettes:
Roll your own it is so much cheaper, or if your like me, get some papers and reroll a cigg outta some nice reburns you may happen to find. Yea its gross sue me.

Alcohol: STAY AWAY from bottomshelf liquor, Ive been to jail way too many times because I downed some popov or taka
40oz or 32oz oF highlife...always highlife...forget the rest
stash your cans and bottles, that **** adds up dudes. that more beer money right there.

Drugs: they are gunna cross your path, AVOID them, they have an excellent way of turning people into homeless beggars. Your a coach surfer. have some ****ing dignity.

Thats it for now, Goodluck, and be safe.


Please feel free to add your own tips <3

Pro tip: change your clothes before sleeping, sweat absorbed into your socks/shirt will get extremely cold at night and you will wake up at 4 am freezing hoping the sun will magicly appear.

Cool thread. You never know when you might be stranded. These are good survival skills. I had a buddy who got stranded in mexico and he basically had to do all these things. He had thousands of dollars in his bank but couldnt get a dime because his wallet and cellphone where stolen. The embassy couldnt do **** because he had no proper identification.

Always prepare for the worst.

Bull****. American embassy's have the ability to print/replace passports. It's actually one of the most common services they provide in places like Mexico where pick pocketing is rife.

Not 10 years ago, he had to wait days before he could get paperwork from the embassy. Ooo i forgot you were present and knew all about it. The point was its important to have survival skills.

5-10bux a month 4 loads at 2.50 a piece. Give or take a few bux. If your goin to a laundry mat and are spending more than 15 a month then you need to learn how to do laundry. Mind you I only have a load to wash.
