Need a spare room or a couch: Thursday nights; in NE/SE PDX

I'm in a new era of my life, and this era unfortunately requires NIGHT SCHOOL
Starting this next Thursday night (Sept 25th) from 6pm - 10pm is my weekly class in NE Portland.
I'll need a place to stay starting Thursday night, October 9th.

Edit: NEW IDEA: Do any of you generous folk have a space for me to park my old 23' Itasca motorhome near the Eastern end of PDX's I-84? Then I can come in late (10:30pm-ish) and leave early (6AM-ish) without disturbing any of you, plus have a bit more comfort and a place to cook breakfast and make coffee. I need no regular hookups, except maybe one day of recharging the deep cell batteries maybe once a month. I have many long extension cords.

The biggest issue is that I live 1-1/2 hours away, near Parkdale (South of Hood River). Second issue is that I'm a 50 year old man, and my bedtime is usually 9-ish. This is far from the almost midnight that I would be getting home after this class. Add to this the Gorge I-84 freeway in the Winter, and I'm not excited to drive home every late evening after class.

So....... enter ADV.

I've got the next two Thursday's covered, but starting October 9th, it'd be neat not to have to drive home after class. I would arrive about 10:30-ish, and would leave about 6:30am-ish to get to work the following morning back in Hood River. No dinner needed, as I would normally eat before class, and no breakfast needed, as I would just grab something on the road. I would ride as much as possible to save gas and have more fun, but Winter in the Gorge requires a 4x4 many times, so I may drive the Dakota. Either way, I would also need a reasonably secure place to park whatever I came to town in for the night.

What do you get outta this, you ask?
What do you want?
I can trade lots of things, I can even pay some form of compensation,...
....but I can also just mooch this gig and not feel too guilty about it

What say you, Portland ??

"addition", ya dumbass,,what the hell do you do for a living,,shirley ain't the building trades!
Editions are for books,new spapers, and poorly written internet posts.

"Yeah,,we'll put an edition on the house,,just cut out those last 4 chapters of strife and grief and the divorce proceedings"

that'll work!

Ironheads with a sense of humor, and by now a long list of large and dramatic erections:

A couple more responses by PM came in too,....Sorry In have not returned all of your PMs yet, but it's two weeks away before I actually need a place, and I find myself a bit short on time lately.

One PM came in with an excellent idea......I have an old 1979 Itasca 23' Motorhome. It does look like it came out of the 70's, but is waaaay less ugly than some . It's self contained with good deep-cell batteries, a propane stove and refrigerator and a bathroom/shower with decent sized holding tanks.

So,,,,,NEW IDEA: Do any of you generous folk have a space for me to park this motorhome near the Eastern end of PDX's I-84? Then I can come in late (10:30pm-ish) and leave early (6AM-ish) without disturbing any of you, plus have a bit more comfort and a place to cook breakfast and make coffee.

You are most generous, and sounds like you are close to where I'd like to be.
I may need to take advantage of one-a-yas.
But, after being reminded about my old motorhome,
I gotta see if that maybe can work out somehow.

Thanks, but no thanks.
Let me re-phrase that....SINCERE thanks for your generous offers.
But,....I really wanna be closer to the East end of Portland's I-84 to make this a better gig than just driving home at night. And I'd be going into Hood River for the morning's work, not home near Parkdale, so being close to Hwy 26 is of little advantage.
