My membership is up this month and I plan to renew it, I find it well worth the money.
We only do a couple BIG trips annually, so using HH and just doing small weekend trips is WAYYYY better than booking into an overcrowded, either drunk adults or loud kidfest campground, when it's just the wife and I looking to escape
. So many of the hosts are near empty after sunset and it is so peaceful.
As far as wineries, they all sell other things besides the alcohol products. So setting yourself up with cheese and crackers and snacks from their other items can accomplish the same purpose.
