I read A LOT of warmshowers profiles and I often see: "please contact me at least a week before".
I was wondering: what do you think about that?
My point of view is : when you travel by bike, it s virtualy impossible to plane so long in advance, because of the weather, technical problems and so on. Personnaly I allow people to contact me the day before, or even that day. Of course the reception won't be perfect that way. But does it always have to be?
Honestly, I sometimes wonder if it's not a "tactic" to avoid some demands.... but maybe I'm wrong :-).
What is your point of view on this?
