Life and adventures from a high school perspective
An avid cyclist, rock climber, and all around adventurer, Francis Davis is taking to the internet to share his stories of cycling, climbing, and adventuring.
What is WarmShowers? In a word, WS is excellent. I would describe it as similar to the AirBnB platform. Cyclists are able to list a room in their house or even a back yard for fellow cyclists to stay at, free of charge. My stay tonight in Camden, ME will be my first end on the receiving end of hospitality.
Back at home, our house is located less than a 1/4 mile from the Northern Tier Route, the same route I’m on right now. We listed our backyard, and so far we’ve had 2 sets of guests staying with us. The first, Jenny and Dan were riding from Tempe, AZ all the way to Bar Harbor, ME. They were great. Most recently, we hosted four gentlemen touring around Lake Erie. We fed them hamburgers and beer, and everyone was happy! I’ve had a great time hosting, but I’m ready to be on the receiving end too!
