I can't find a more appropriate forum for this post, so here goes ....
I wonder, has anyone ever met or communicated with any of the OTHER hosts in their own area ..?
Seems to me this would be a good idea for a number of reasons : eg
* finding information / resources for guests that the "original host" may not have ;
* providing a guest with an onward contact;
* introducing the Guest to other Hosts who may have a particular interest in that Guest's story...
In my own case, while I happen to know some of the hosts nearby ( within 20km, say). I don't know most of them, even after seeing their WS details over many years sometimes. Some of these people live quite close to me...
Now I think WS members are something rather special ( not *every* bicycle traveller is WS !), so I find it a little disappointing that I never hear about any attempt to communicate / coordinate to make a better/ richer WS experience in our own region.
I have to say, that the website does not seem to provide a means to "bulk contact" the Hosts in a particular place, which used to be possible in the Old Days ....
So my question is :
a) have you ever wanted to meet the other Hosts near you ?
b) would that be a good idea ?
c) have you ever tried to meet them , and if so, what was the response ?
