1- Home exchanges e.g. someone who lives in Hawaii exchanges there home for the month of Jan. with someone in Wisconsin
2- If you happen to live close to where an important event is happening e.g Superbowl you gladly have house guests
3- You never go against your friends opinions on the board no matter how bizarre

A round trip plane ticket to a warm tropical place for 3 weeks would work for me!

This alone argues for a wide circle of friends. Everytime I think of some indelicate riposte I spike it if it is toward a friend.

I have a few, would always accept more, but then I am an FA on a DIY board, so I assume that makes me less popular............

That would not be so mild.
