I bring this up now because I haven't seen any postings about that practice because I got out in 1977. When did WT quit soliciting private homes for accomodations? Or have they stopped?
I hated it, but it was the only way we could afford to go. At New York in 1958 I was a 17 year old, lodging in some strange apartment while my parents were at a different home miles away. I can't remember the price but it was probably around $1 a night.
Any experiences you'd like to share?
