    Muselix! It's not as bad as it sounds. It was really nice of you to let them stay.

    Me three!

    I don't think my comfort level is quite there with warm showers either. I suppose I've seen too much of the bad side of people.

    once our remodel is done, we'll look into this. Our backyard is perfect for camping.

    We enjoy being warm showers hosts, there are actually more hosts than bike tourists in our area, so we don't feel bad if we have to turn someone away due to scheduling. We had a couple over memorial day that were very fun, we basically gave them run of our little apartment over our shop. I was a bit concerned because they were vegan and we aren't but we even cooked dinner together, twice.
    Good for you Mimi!
    the Bike Hermit had great experience his last long tour with his warm showers hosts as well.

    Long time WarmShowers host ...

    I've been a host on WarmShowers for about 6 years and it has been a wonderful experience. Some of my more memorable guests include:

    -- A guest who told me about the National 24 Hour Challenge, and thus started my endurance cycling career (his son recently came out and rode the N24HC with us)
    -- A family who had been on the road already 12 months - the boys were 4, 6 and 8 when they left Calgary and headed for Mexico. Each morning mom taped their homework to the handlebars on the tandems and tagalong.
    -- A couple on their honeymoon, visiting all 50 states and raising money for two fantastic causes
    -- A photographer/touring cyclist who I am still in contact

    And many more.

    I recommend everyone consider becoming a host, whether you live alone, as a couple or a member of a large family. And regardless of whether you have just a small place to pitch a tent or a private bedroom w/bath.

    I had my card on the mantle too, but apparently the naughty kitty thought it belonged behind the piano,
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    Hey- I hosted them, too! Well, I suppose it could have been another couple doing the same thing, but A&C were the sweetest couple ever! They even rode to school with me and did a big presentation for the school before they left town.

    That was very nice of you to take them in. Were they riding the Pacific Coast or ? Any good stories or interesting conversations? Would you consider hosting again?
    I will consider Warm Showers once I retire (44 months!).
