  • Housing / Room-share for ThatCamp and AHA


    Hello fellow campers!

    I’m looking for a place to stay or a room to share for ThatCamp and the AHA, and I’m guessing that I’m not the only one, so I thought I’d start a thread.

    If you have:

    • A couch to spare
    • A spot on the floor
    • A hotel/motel room with an extra bed
    • &c

    I, and probably several others, would like to know about it.
