" Helping people travel inexpensively "
~I travel "extensively" for work, so can only host for a few days at a time, "when I am here".
~Live in San Francisco Bay Area, but 60-75 miles south of the city.
~Welcome whether you'd like to interact with a local - or just trying to save money on accommodations.
~Married with 2 kids. Can spare 2 beds, plus floor-space for about 6 people.
~No smoking (anything), nor drugs.
~Our house is NOT going to win the "neatest & cleanest" award, by a long shot !!
