Surprising how there is good translation for “point de chute” in English. Youc an loosely translate it as “a place to crash” or “drop zone” (more litteral). But a “point de chute” in French is a place when you travel or where you just don’t have a home, a place where you can rest, drop your stuff, a temporary home.
For me a “point de chute” (PDC) is a place that is not your home, but where you can stay / leave your stuff with no limit of time. A place where you dont feel like you’re bothering.
In China my place became the PDC of many friends. In my hometown I have several PDC (family and friends). But now jumping to the US, I realize I have no safe one and it made me worried. So I started thinking where are my closest PDC there?? Montreal I have a few, strangely people from my hometown in Montreal are quite numerous.
Then I might have Boston. But both are pretty far, still need to take the plane.
Maybe a PDC is also a friend’s place you just hang out where you feel down. I think Explorers needs that much more than Builders. Builders have their own while Explorer dont feel the need to have a home. They need a network of PDC.
