I would hope that hosts would consider me to be a good guest. I've learned that the place you stay at isn't that critical as long as it's clean, safe, and in a decent location. I tend to not spend a lot of time at the place I'm staying at but rather out and about exploring.
Five things I can't live without? My daughter, my dog, drawing, music, and wine, (#6 would be books and #7 would be movies).
I love road trips and in the last couple of years have become slightly addicted to Portland Oregon.
