I took advantage of the list last summer on my Alaska trip. I've been waiting to say thanks until I got a trip report up, but since it's been sitting half finished on my computer for months now who knows when that will be, so now is as good a time as any other.

I was treated to a great little trailer out of the rain to stay in outside Denali, along with an awesome trip down the Nenana and a couple sandwiches all thanks to Denalidirt. Friar Mike let me crash in his quonset hut for another rain/ bug free night. Several of the Anchorage area riders offered up their places as well along with some useful help. I ended up just tenting it at the Harley shop for a couple days. I could probably have taken advantage of a few more offers as well, but poor planning on my part and changes in route/schedule due to weather squashed some of that. Other riders not necessarily on the list also helped out with floor space in Homer and bike storage in Fairbanks while I was off kayaking for a couple weeks.

Thanks to all on the list and especially those who helped me out.

New River is a rural(ish) area about 20 miles north of phoenix. Plenty of room for tents/campers, also a spare bedroom to offer weary travelers... Tools aplenty and an overcrowded garage. We have no kids but we do have a couple of pretty dumb dogs. Roughly 3 hours from grand canyon, maybe the same to Mexico...

Powhatan, VA

25 miles West-Southwest of Richmond, and not a bad spot to start/stop/rest if you're on the road. zip code 23139

Kind of limited as far as spare beds go, but we are on 10 acres- we could host any number (!?) of tents, and a one-day slab from pretty much anywhere east of the Mississippi. Fridge is stocked.

I have a bunch of dealers for several brands in the area. We have lots of garage space and some tools, but I am a mechanical klutz. Storage space is no problem if you need it. Truck and trailer available any time I'm around.

You don't have to like dogs, horses, chickens or cats but you will need to be able to at least get along with them.

call me any time- (804) three three nine- eight five nine three - to make sure I'm going to be around and give me time to stock up.
