Stowe and Craftsbury Common, Vermont

Stowe: 140+ acres but most of it is too wet for camping much of the year. Better tent space closer to the house in my meadow; best to arrive in daylight so you don't set your tent up on a pile of sheep crap. Friendly dogs will kiss you enthusiastically, but only after eating sheep poop. Sheep start bellowing at 6am. Cell phone reception spotty and only if you stand on one foot and hop in clockwise circles while leaning to the left. Electric fencing for the sheep that you definitely don't want to piss on. Inmates welcome for a day or two, possibly longer if you have no undesirable traits.

On the plus side, beer, great coffee, shower, sometimes even a spare room, good conversation unless I've had a bad day at work in which case I'm socially inept. Have a pretty good assortment of tools including a tire changer. Generally have a few GS tires with 30% tread left if you need one in a pinch. Dealers for most brands about 40 miles away in Burlington VT. Plenty of great restaurants down in the valley a few miles away. One hill over from the Trapp Family Lodge, five miles to Smugglers' Notch and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Wife worked in the tourism industry for 20 years so she knows all the attractions and I know pretty much all the local roads. Fellow sidecarists especially welcome.

Dirt road easily handled by everything but cruisers and monster touring machines with traction control. Think rural.

Craftsbury Common: 10.6 rolling acres of pasture in the heart of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. One paved road in the entire town, but miles of scenic dirt roads in some of the prettiest country anywhere. Half a mile to the general store and its awesome deli. Everything else is at least ten miles away. Half an hour from the Hill Farmstead Brewery, home of some of the best suds anywhere. Also half an hour from the border with Quebec. Home is still a construction zone, so for 2015 the only amenities I can offer would be a functioning toilet and a garage for your bike.

Did I mention the dogs?

In Sale, East Gippsland 2 hours east of Melbourne and gateway to the Victorian High Country or as we like to call it.... HEAVEN...
I had a great deal of help from ADVer's in the States when I blew my beemer up in North Dakota so only too glad to help with a bed in or out or some grass for a tent, assistance, full garage of gear a lot of enthusiasm and tons of love and respect for this site.

UPDATED: November 2013

On US 29 between Greensboro and Danville.

Plenty of camping space, tools, tire changing facilities. Several flavors of dealerships within an hour away. Covered and garage parking. Indoor sleeping available if the weather's too bad. Might be a chance for a fire, a meal and some libations as well.




We can move the truck and tractor out and have room for 4-6 tents.






The deck is a work in progress, but would be a nice place to set up a tent if it was going to rain.

I'm about 5 miles outside of town, up Hwy 52 W toward Chatsworth. I've got a large finished basement with a couple of mattresses, it's own bathroom and a good view.

Awesome dual sporting area with great roads and trails in all directions. I actually live inside the Chattahoochee National Forest, the Cohutta wilderness is at the end of my street and you can ride to TN or NC on dirt.

A garage with tools and space for a bike or two.

I have 2 cats so if you're allergic it may not be a good choice. I'm a non-smoker so if you must it's gonna be outside no matter how cold it is.

I've got an extra bedroom w/a queen bed and a crash room upstairs w/a full size bed. Garage space for bikes. No need to camp! I do have a dog who sheds so if you're allergic, my place may not be ideal for you.

We've just recently got a camp in the Ocala National Forest about 5 miles north of Salt Spring and 15 miles south of Palatka. Plenty of places to camp or throw down a mattress. We've got a few air mattresses.

WARNING: 2.5 miles of sand road to get in. For a consideration - we might come out with the truck to load you up and bring you in. :-)

NOTE: We are there November 1 through early April ONLY. Summer months we're in NY state (same email).

CONTACT US AHEAD OF TIME! Internet reception is poor until we hookup with a satelite. Give us time to get your message when we go to town, which might take a few days.

Yo dudes! I'm located just East of Albuquerque in Tijeras, NM 87059. My cabin and workshop are about 25 minutes from downtown ABQ so if you're passing through, its a nice way to avoid the traffic (and heat).

Plenty of good riding nearby I can point you towards.

I've got a lift, fully stocked tool cab, and can do some broken down recovery if you're really screwed. I have plenty of 5 acres of tent space, 1200 square feet of shop space, and a spare loft, bed, and couch you're needing a roof.

Tacoma, WA-- seven minutes from I-5. Three bedroom home in the suburbs. Close to supermarkets, Home Depot, Tacoma Screw (nut & bolt superstore), South Sound BMW, DMC Sidecars, and dealers for KTM, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, etc. Also close to Port of Tacoma for importing/exporting bikes by ship. Also no problem picking up or dropping off at SeaTac airport.

Amenities-- basic garage and metric hand tools; floor jack; flat bed trailer; spare beds--one queen and two singles, plus a sofa so I can host groups of 4 no problem; fenced backyard big enough for 2 small tents but so far all my tent space guests slept in the house; wi-fi of course.

Services-- if you need something for your trip or your bike, you can order it online and have it delivered here. I'll hold it for you. I'm retired, so usually available to help out inmates wherever whatever.

Warning: must like dogs!

I usually log in every day so send me a PM. If that doesn't work, call me -- 253.565.nineninetwosix -- and leave a voice message. If you want me to text you and not call you because you're riding, say that in your message. But I'm not listing my cell phone number here because I'm terrible at checking it.

new brunswick

spot 1: Just a bit north of Shediac New Brunswick. tent space available in my yard. email me: charlie_brien@hotmail.com

Alt spot 1. If you want extra private, or if you are more than 1 tent, there are a few clearings in the woods (previous clear cuts) that I can direct you to; they are not far (5minutes away) off Hwy 11. There is a mild (easy) ditch crossing to get there and you have to cross it. Here, you could make a campfire and stay a few nights. Although rare at this spot, bears are possible however moose are common.

I can also lead you to a nice waterfront-beach front property in the area.



spot 2 Shemogue NB. (on the way to PEI, Prince Edward Island) Just let me know that you're planing on staying or that you have been there if I miss your request. No problem for 1 night, pack it in, pack it out, strictly no fires. You will have to ride through tall grass to get to it (road is overgrown and seldom used-but it's there and safe) Off hwy 15 Shemogue NB. here are the coordinates. 46.165404,-64.188471 No house there. turn off the hwy into a driveway 2 houses to left of lot, then immediately right onto a grassy road, (this is the old hwy, you are not tresspassing) watch culvert is broken at one spot. At end of road, cross fence (my fence) and pitch tent in previously cleared area. (not the field to the left of right of the road, that's the neighbours place.) Punch in coordinates, you'll find it! It's across the street from Twin Birch lodge.

Santa Cruz welcomes you

I'm on the Cali coast, 70 miles south of San Francisco. I have floor space/couch space in my house, no need to do the tent thing unless you wish. In which case you can put up a tent on my deck..I'm in Scotts Valley, which is just inland of Santa Cruz by about 8 miles. I'm about an hour north of Monterey, which is your gateway to the Big Sur stretch of Highway 1.

Garage available, but I don't have it set up for advanced bike stuff; the basics are here. I have a small motorcycle lift and basic tools, but you'll have to know what you are doing. There's a good Beemer repair shop just a mile away. Help with Japanese bikes will be a bit further, but within thirty minutes.

I'm a fireman, so my schedule is a bit different, but send me an email and I'll help if I can. Happy to help with your travels-I've been a guest of others many times!
