Close to the end of the 2014 Warm Showers experience... my first!

Despite how these forums are not visited by the majority of the members here on WS... I still want to conclude the year 2014 with this...

THANK YOU WARM SHOWERS! :)
.
I first heard of this place from Anne-Sophie Casterman, a single woman traveling to Colombia.
I gave her a lift from a local bike shop to the start of the Avenue of the Giants.
I didn't think more of WS until I met André and Karla outside our local grocery store/cyclist re-stocking place and wound up hosting them that night.
.
This couple inspired me to investigate Warm Showers, which led to my joining up and spending almost 6 months as a host for the adventurous, eager, engaging and awesome folks who have either stayed at my place, accepted a ride down the road, a bike repair, or just met me through virtual contact on their way though.
.
This experience has been such a positive one in my life despite moments of unemployment, brief illness, and whatnot... I extend my sincere thanks to everyone I've met, contacted, been contacted by, and the folks here on the forums I've interacted with.
Thank all of you for your stories and advice here on the forums, as they have answered some of my questions and/or given me insight to this world.
.
I am looking forward to 2015 and all the travelers who will venture my way, along with their stories, smiles, and great energy!

thanks for the encouraging words

Always good to read about other hosts positive experiences.
This was my 4th season to host and had some of my most memorable guests. 19 total
all had stories and experiences to share.
Looking forward to the 2015 riding season.
