accomodation help needed in San Diego

Need some assistance!
Check out our website at Website Template -
We have been traveling for nearly 6 months and are preparing for the ride south into Mexico and Central America. Unfortunately we are being held up as we clear up details with the INS (Darren is a green card holder). We will need to remain in San Diego for another week. Can anyone in the area offer accomodation to two homeless motorcyclists for a few days? We have secured a place to stay until Sunday, but our earliest appointment with the INS is on Thursday.
Any & All help is much appreciated!

While not the ideal situation, there a evacuation centers open in San Diego becasue of the fires. If all else fails, I assume you could at least use them as a place to sleep as long as you aren't taking up space for people who lost their homes and are really in need...

thanks!

Yeah - the fires have been pretty devastating here. The campgrounds are all full and the hotels are too expensive for our budget. But we have been lucky to find a few folks who were not effected by the fire and have extra space for us.
We didn't expect this delay at all - since we left Altanta, the INS has changed the requirements of Darren's leave from the US to include a biometrics exam- typical beaurocratic BS...
Anyhow - I think we have found a solution, but I will post when I am certain.

Thanks again!

Casey

Jeeze, are you guys STILL in the US?? Thought you'd be well south by now. You should try contacting the Communities on Horizons, it worked pretty well for us re accommodation, at least for North America anyways.

Good luck with it all and say hi to Darren!

Cheers
