Phyllis isn’t a touring cyclist but found out about Warmshowers while living in Cañon City, Colorado. The town is situated smack dab on Adventure Cycling’s TransAmerica Trail so it sees an influx of bicycle tourists every summer.
Drawn to lend a hand, Phyllis started hosting. And she's continued to do so with her new husband Randy in her new home in Aguila, Arizona, a town that's smack dab on the Southern Tier (another popular cross-country route).
Phyllis is an advocate for us. She’s managed to convince the town to allow cyclists to sleep in the local park when she’s not home –– and treat them, too. From her Warmshowers profile:
"Please stop at the local library for instructions on camping and a voucher for dinner at the local restaurant."
Both are pilots living in an airport community and give us a tour of their hanger. It’s got everything and the kitchen sink: two small planes, a boat, a teardrop trailer, bicycles, a Citroen car, and a surfboard.
