Not sure if I have written anything about Warmshowers.org. It is a great place for cyclist to go to find places to stay while out on the road. It is kind of like Couch Surfing but only for cyclists. Plus you are not permitted to charge people to let them stay. Hosts can simply let you stay in the back yard and use the bathroom, to using the guest room, laundry, Wi-Fi and maybe even a meal. I have stayed with 9 hosts so far and they have all been great! If you were one of my hosts thanks! Everyone of you have been such wonderful hosts.

I want to give the most unique award (up to now anyway) to Phyllis and Randy. They offered to host me even with last minute notice. I kind of forgot to look for a host and when there really wasn't any other options in their area I remembered to check Warmshowers and there they were.

What made the stay so unique is that they live in an Airpark. I had never experience one before and I think it is absolutely one of the greatest ideas ever. Most of the home owners have their own hangar and you just walk out of your house, hop into your plane, taxi down the street, and take off on the private runway. These two have renewed my desire to get my private pilot license and maybe even find a place like this to retire in.
