Allow hosts to select and invite guests

I was disappointed to discover that WarmShowers doesn't have a functionality that allow travellers to post a public information about their trip so that hosts can search for guests that are planning to arrive in their town. For example, I live in Wrocław and I'd like to search for travellers that are planning to arrive in Wrocław this week so that I can invite them to stay at my place. This is something that Couchsurfing has ("public trip") and it's great.

Allowing travellers to share their GPS location would be helpful as well.

That feature was added to

That feature was added to Couchsurfing only many years into the site’s existence, and many hospitality-exchange activists feel that it has been disastrous for CS.

In any event, the challenge that WS has at the moment is retaining active hosts at all, let alone hosts who are so desirous for guests that they are unwilling to just wait for requests and instead want to go looking for travelers to host.
