Well, there are 3 or 4 active  cohousing groups in the metro area, all in some
way in the planning stage, and a couple of more rural groups.  One has moved
into phase 1 of a 2 stage project (mine) and we are certainly willing to have
cohousing visitors.  The more notice you can give us, the better - we're pretty
busy with meetings, etc. these days. In terms of staying with us, it would
depend on the schedule and availability of space. .  We are asking people to
contribute $20/night for using our guest room, not sure how much for the
"teeny" guest room.  You could for sure come by and visit and talk, one way or
another.   We have Friday night dinners and we appreciate a contribution (it's
very hard to cook not knowing if there will be 10 people or 30, and that's been
the range - either notify us (2 days before and we'll include you in the count
and ask for a small ($1.75) contribution, or bring a potluck contribution. 
)I'll be out of town from August 18-30, but you can call me before then, at
922-5125.  Late is o.k. (before 11:15).

I assume the other Twin Cities Network folk will respond for their groups.
