Since arriving in Bozeman a month ago, I've either been out on hitch in Yellowstone National Park, backpacking in the mountains, or sleeping on the floors of two friends I have in town. A conversation with one of my gracious hosts the other day went something like this.
Leslie - "I really appreciate you letting me crash on your floor again."
Host - "No really, it isn't a big deal."
Leslie - "It is a big deal. I mean you are letting a homeless person stay at your place. That's huge!"
Host - "Whatever. You are much better than a homeless person. You are way safer."
