Hey, i just graduated from the painting and printmaking department at vcu in richmond, va. AND i'm making a tour from here to maine this summer. so i can sympathize with your need for a place to sleep. Feel free to contact me if you need a place to crash but it'd have to be before june 20th. after that i'd be on my way to maine.

Yeah, just get a credit card, charge the s**t out of it, default on the payments, and then declare bankruptcy when you finish the tour before the new bankruptcy law goes into effect! Of course, if you are an airline or major corporation, you don't have to worry.

Join a hospitality network. Those websites are made for people who want to host folks like you.

Try two: www.servas.org and www.hospitalityclub.org. The servas one requires a passport and an interview and an application. The hospitalityclub.org requires a passport and filling out an application online for people to view information about you when you request accomodations.

When is your tour? I live in NJ (Trenton) and may be able to help you out.
