I live in Washington, DC. Father/son camping trips and outings are my favorites. We often take one of our dogs along for canine companionship. I have been a storyteller for decades, Grimm's tales, Native American stories, and originals. I did street theater for over 10 years. Today I am a consultant, author, writer (search my name on Amazon). Wife is a singer/songwriter. Adopted our daughter from India in 2011 when she was 6 years old.
My favorite things about airbnb:
* Meet immensely cool people
* You can do airbnb on the fly - we have booked several rooms within hours of occupation, makes an unplanned life easier to pull off!
* Get an experience of real life, not an artificial landscape planned for the masses
* Often extremely convenient to the part of town I want to visit. I have used it on business trips as well as serendipitous adventures.
