Well,

Can we get a head count on who is still looking for a place? I just looked at the campground at lake skinner where there some folks gathering, and there are lots of sites available adjacent to the PV set. I'm between that, Motel 6 and sharing a house.

Have any of you tried COUCH SURFING?

Just wondering everyone seems to be really excited to get to the conference and it seems hard to find a place to stay.
When I travel I use Couch Surfing because it's FREE.

There's even a website where you can sign up that has people who are verified to be SAFE. This will save you a lot of money, most couch surfing hosts ask that you help out with meals and housework while you stay, and that's the spirit I see all over this site.

So if you're looking for a place to stay check out couch surfing! Another great idea is to look at STUDENT ROOMS and STUDENT HOUSES if it's during the Off Season you can get a room for 300$ a month in a student house.

Hi, I and two of my friends are still looking for a place to stay. We've been looking on Couchsurfing but if there is a house still available that isn't too expensive, we'd be down to split it. Thelka, if you are interested, let us know!

I am down for splitting a rented house. I am just so busy right now that I cannot do all of The leg work. I can put down and forward the money for deposit tomorrow. I'd like to spend at the most $250 for Wednesday night through Monday morning. I am willing to be sleeping on my own blowup mattress. So if there's anybody out there trying to organize something please count me as somebody who is committed.

Again I can pay for the room and put down the deposit today or tomorrow.

I live in San Diego (92107) less than 10 minutes from the San Diego airport. We have some alternative housing with garden available (and hot showers).

Also, we live walking distance to People's Organic Co-op http://obpeoplesfood.coop

I will be driving back and forth each day of the conference and looking for folks looking to pitch in ($) on that effort.

I am willing to pay up to $30 for ride from LAX to Temecula. I live at the Los Angeles Eco-village and can take public transit to LAX.

I agree that the variety of housing at this place makes it a good choice. I don't know if there is any level ground outside suitable for pitching a tent or even if such a thing would be accepted by the owner.

Tomas, Paul will be getting the master suite, but there are 5 bedrooms in this house and they will be rented out per room, with variable charges according to how nice the room seems. The bunk room will rent out per bed, I think.



I am interested in a bunk bed if still available. Lara Morrison at the Los Angeles Eco-Village

Sorry, that house filled up in December, I think. There were 20 spots, and they are all filled. I can't go over 20, it's in the contract I signed. It's not about the amount of space, I'd guess it's about the septic system.

I recommend this thread:

or this one:

Re: Couchsurfing... I've got a good number of great references, have hosted and been hosted, and contacted about 12 people, with so far no word back... so went for the house option. It's definitely my general mode of travel but if after a week and a half I haven't heard a peep back I have to assume there's not much of a CS community in Temecula.

Anyone else have better luck?

Hi friends! I'm one of the facilitators at the Permaculture Voices Conference and my friend Melissa and I are looking for a place to stay. We're both young farmers on tight budgets, so we would love to share a room with other folks. We both have thermarests/sleeping bags/towels etc and would prefer a home stay or something at Pechanga or walking distance. We can pay money or figure out a trade She lives near PDX and is a founding/farming member of www.WinslowFoodForest.com and I'm the founder/farmer/facilitator with www.Sporulate.org . Contact me directly 5one7-97four-88eight3 . Looking forward to meet y'all next week !!

Did you get on the carpooling thread?

I dont have the link to it right now, but shouldn't be too hard to find.

Also, just as a clarification,
do you have housing in Temecula, or are you needing to carpool everyday?

There are three or four rentals leaving from LAX at various times, mine is full, but there may still be one with seats.
Just check over there and hope they do too, and PM your contact info to whoever is heading it up so the planning can move along quickly.

Good luck!

Ok, very very last minute. I can book a room at

La Quinta Inn & Suites Temecula
27330 Jefferson Ave Temecula, CA 92590 US

Two Queen Beds w/Microwave & Fridge
Free High-Speed Internet Access
Free Bright Side Breakfast®
Bright Morning Pillow Top Beds
Convenient Work Desk
Microwave & Mini Refrigerator
Coffee Maker
Hairdryer
Iron w/Ironing Board
Free Local Calls
Alarm Clock

I will also be renting a car to go back and forth. Its 15 min away from the conference. A few Gas bucks would be appreciated.

Wednesday night check in through Sunday Morning check out for $512 plus tax.

If there are two of you that want to share a queen, and you can paypal me the money this afternoon, I will go ahead and book.
If there are two more of you that would like to share the queen, I'd be down for that as well.

As for rates. If two of you want to claim the other bed, get in touch with me and I'd ask for $300 plus whatever tax we accrue (we'll settle that when we get there)
If we want to sneak one person in with a sleeping bag on top of that, I'd ask for $150 with $100 of that going to the two people who claimed the other bed.
If two more people want to claim the other bed and kick me on the floor. I'd ask for $200 with $100 going to the two people who claimed the other bed.
In all these scenario's i'd split the tax and fees to be split evenly by the people in the room.

Super last minute, but I've been all over the Internet trying to figure out housing. I have a tent if folks are renting a house. Can I pitch it in the yard? If none available, what other options are there. I don't really want to camp at the different campgrounds, because they are a half hour away from pechanga. I am willing to carpool if available though from the campgrounds
