Looking to share expenses between Greater Vancouver

I do not usually do this but will send it to the group.  Does anyone want to
share expenses between Seattle and Vancouver / White Rock on a weekly basis?

I work in the US, near Seattle, and rent a room a 1/2 hour walk from work.
I can walk throughout the week and also get groceries if necessary.
Can you link me up with any Vancouver/Seattle employees so that we can
possibly  share gas?
They can drop me off as I am only 1 mile from the freeway in Mountlake
Terrace, about 12 miles north of Seattle.
Similarly if there is a US female who commutes the other way to Vancouver,
my wife may consider working out a deal to rent a room. My wife is an
excellent cook - 90%+ organic.
Our townhouse is located near White Rock.
Thanks Taxman.
