places to stay when traveling

I figure many of us have been socially networking here for years and have
in a way come to know each other. What if we went one step farther and set
up kind of a network of places where we could stay with each other while
travelling? I can just imagine the shop tours .. the conversations ..
We could call them .. WELDERHOSTELS.
cheers

You're picturing a clean-cut guy with creased blue slacks and a pin-striped shirt with name tag, a pocket protector and a precision rule.
The wife is expecting a guy with dirty fingernails, two weeks of stubble, a grimy gimme cap, tobacco stains down his chin, greasy overalls unbuttoned down the side with MAYBE a holey T-shirt.
I want to see you sell this idea.

So you are expecting Tony Randall, and get Billy Bob Thornton. How about welder hostiles?

In a perfect world, or even 30 or 40 years ago, it would have been a great idea. I would certainly enjoy something like that.
Problem is today we have a lot more "takers" than "givers", a lot more self centered, self serving people - that would be quick to take advantage of such hospitality, but always be too busy to return the favors.
Compound that with so many people today are so opinionated, cooperation in any efforts suffers, because if everyone isn't allowed to "run it", they have no desire to participate in it. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

I was just writing up a scenario to present to you guys my elegant pun "welderhostels". I had (and have) no intention of imposing myself on any of you! :-)

Now there's a bright idea--but don't look at it without protection.
