I am surely that way, my dad is the opposite and in his car club world has no problems just calling people in the area based on a membership list. 95% of the time once they realize he isn't any stranger than I know him to be and is innocent they welcome him to stop by and check out cars with almost no notice, not a "hotel" adventure but you would be surprised how as humans we enjoy interactions once you get over the "stranger" part.
My plane isn't flying yet, hoping for 2018. But I have had an idea in my head of hitting 48 states and visiting 48 VAF members in the process.
