I have hosted a few cyclists over the years and it has always been a positive experience. Until this past weekend. I had a guy contact me via email early in the week. I like to be notified in advance 2-3 days. He was coming in the near Sat or Sun. My husband and I were excited to get another visitor and really cleaned up our house etc. We were prepared and expected to get a call or email or something as the weekend came. It came and went and we received no word. The area I live in is mountainous, roads with little to no shoulder and people do get hit and/or disappear. I had hoped the guy would at least let me know if he was serious about coming or not. For all I know he could have been run over, had fallen over a cliff or gotten eaten by by a bear or pack of coyotes. I am really disgusted at his lack of courtesy and inconsideration. I can only hope he is still alive and well and that any future touring visitor will be better.
