    Couple of us okies are riding the TAT right now and tomorrow we are planning to set up camp near the buffalo river area or a bit further east. Any recommendation on a proper place to tent camp? Warm shower would super nice!
    Thanks

    Anyone close to Rogers that might have some spare garage space to hold a bike for a couple of days? My BMW is following me up on a trailer, but I don't have anywhere to put it when I get up to the area. I still need to secure housing, so will have to motel it for a few days, and don't really want to leave it and my gear in the parking lot. Alternatively, I suppose I can rent a storage unit for a month, but I know some of them are funny about vehicles in them.

    I'm in Fayetteville and have the space but it might get buried for a while while I store some furniture from our old house. Ummm, it might require you to leave keys though....wink wink. PM me.

    Lots of friendly folks. Awesome.

    I only mentioned Rogers because that's most likely where I'll get a place, or Bentonville, and was just worried about being able to get back to the bike to ride it home. One person with two vehicles makes things complicated at times. Wish I actually owned a trailer at times, even though it would rarely get used. GS won't exactly go on my bumper hitch carrier...

    Heck, I'll loan you a open trailer to haul stuff for your move. 6.5 X 12 ( 2" ball ) ( single axle ) or so,I have not measured it yet. How far you moving from & how much stuff you got?

    Problem I always have though, is what to do with it the rest of the time. I move around a lot and don't always have a garage. Same reason I can never lug all my tools around.

    Also not sure I trust the axles/wheels/bearings on those HF trailers, but maybe they would be alright for short hauls. I thought about one of those trailer in a bags, but they want ridiculous (!!!!) money for what they are.

    I appreciate the offer, but won't be able to pick it up. I will have stuff in two places, and I'm just going to make a straight run from one to the next and to NWA. The shortest run to NWA is 700 miles one way, so not something I want to make another trip for. If I can't haul it with what I have, I probably don't need it.
