I am a travel addict. I am a 32 year old Wisconsin resident. I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. I enjoy traveling the country to see baseball games at various major league parks.
I have discovered over the past years that the stale hotel environment is not nearly as rewarding a travel experience as more social opportunities, including things like youth hostels.
I have not yet stayed at someone's house/apartment via this service or (website hidden), but am definitely interested in the idea. Much like my first experience in a hostel, it's taking the plunge into the first experience like this that is the most difficult.
