We grew up in the Washington DC area, and moved to Eugene, Oregon in 2008. We are bike commuters (10 mile daily round trip along the Willamette River!), backyard chicken owners (3 Arucanas and a Black Star), and gardeners (gobs of flowers, garlic, veggies). We love great food, fascinating people, and danish modern design. Liz works for an environmental nonprofit, and Aaron works in the craft beer industry. We have both been members of couchs-rfing since 2006, and surfed and hosted many times - for loads of great references, (website hidden), search for user names EMLAWRENCE and INDIEJONES.
