I scanned through the topics and did not see this one in a subject line. So thought I would throw it out.
I have hosted 25 guests over the 2 1/2 yrs i have been a host. 9 so far this riding season.
What do others do about morning departure time ? I have to be work fairly early ( 7 am) and really feel bad about shooing
someone who has biked 80 miles the previous day out the door at 6:45. For one thing as the summer progresses it is not light enough
that early to be on the roads.
So far I have mentioned my morning departure time over dinner then quickly add, " i will not chase you out, here is a key lock
up hide the key at such and such location sleep in to your heart's content" i love the look of relief on their faces.
I generally leave a few written instructions about closing windows and signing the guest book. I have never come home
to anything bad , always a nice note in my guest book and the key where i told them to put it.
I figure anyone with the gumption to ride like they do will not rob me blind. They also know that if they did abuse the privilege
their feedback column won't look for them finding another home. I like the check and balance of this sight.
Anyone else have good or bad experience?
