Yes, we have the same policy, but that's not my question.  We are sometimes
contacted by people outside our community asking to stay here.  If they do,
they are provided a "host" as you describe. My question was about how
people in your community feel about that.  Or perhaps you don't get
requests from other cohousers, etc like we do.
