Sioux Falls, SD
Do road races and bike tours.
Kasey Abbott, his brother and his two sons from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, drove to NYC in November 2012 in order to run the 43rd Annual NYC Marathon. Well, not all of them, as Kasey is the runner in the family, but they all came down to sightsee and help cheer him on. Unfortunately, due to the wraith of Hurricane Sandy, Mayor Bloomberg decided to cancel the marathon. Although I did agree with this decision, I feel it was quite rude and unprofessional of him to have done so just one day before the race, as he had said on the Wednesday prior that the marathon was still on.
In any case, Casey found out that the race had been cancelled as he was on line in traffic heading through the Lincoln Tunnel! YIKES!! However, instead of being mad and upset, he kept a positive outlook and used the time to go around sightseeing with his family. They were all Really Nice. I've hosted a LOT of different people, from all over the world, and had some Great Experiences. I'm listing my time meeting Kasey and his family in my top 5, as they were so fun to hang out with and talk to. My girlfriend Natalia and I can't wait to go out to South Dakota to visit them on their ranch.
I can't recommend them highly enough to any other future potential Airbnb host!!
