    Due to time/money constraints and a few weddings that I REALLY should attend this summer, the South American walkabout is quickly drawing to a close. I'm in Valparaiso, Chile getting read to crate up the bike and ship it to Baltimore. Why not Seattle (where I live) you ask? Shipping the bike and flying myself to the eastern seaboard is vastly cheaper than Seattle for some reason - so much so that the difference in price will more than pay for a cross country roadtrip. Since all the oldskool rallys seem to take place far from where I live, I've never gotten the chance to actually meet any old skoolers (notice spelling) except for Solo Lobo and Stickerbush, so I figure that as long as I'm going to be slowly riding across the ol' U S of A and have plenty of time to kill until when I NEED to be back in Seattle, I figured I might as well see if anyone is game to let a cheapskate traveller pitch a tent in their yard for a night or even just grab a beer. If you've given me any priceless wisdom in the past that beer might even be on me. Anybody in? I'll be leaving from Baltimore toward the end of April or beginning of May heading toward New Mexico, then north to wyoming, west to Oregon, then north to Seattle. If you live anywhere on this rough trajectory and have a nice yard, let me know.

    If you come through SE GA, which looks to be out of your way, I'll put you up as well. Either tent or extra bedroom.

    Regards, Chris

    No chance you can make it to the Old School rally in Tennesse on April 23rd?

    I'll probably be heading south myself the 2nd week of May but if you pass through north GA before then I've got a whole room you can have.

    depending on your timing, tolerance for kids, and trains, i can provide a room and wrenching space if needed.

    I might be in Cali this summer, but I've got a yard in central Missouri that might be on your way.

    New York here, of course, even though it appears a bit off your line.

    Would be an honor, sir :bow

    Holy sh#$! Wasn't expecting that many replies! So far it's not looking like I'll make it in time for the old skool rally. My bike is shipping the 1st and they say it'll take 3 weeks which is Chilean for "4 weeks." Too bad I blew that one.

    If Denver Metro is along your way, gimme a holler. Depending upon the timing, of course, I usually have plenty of room in the house, and in the carport. If I can't host when you will be here, I'll do my best with other friendly Rockies ADV'ers to get you situated.

    We have a guest room with bath here in Colorado Springs. No need to camp in the yard. Can also let you use our cabin in the mountains for a few days as well. Great riding too. You could hole up there for a few days and see the mountains from the deck while you reduce my beer and booze supply. Or you can just visit the cabin and skip me completely as we have a hidden key up there. :lol3 BMWBLAKE can tell you the area has some appeal.

    You can also wrench here if you need to freshen fluids or what not. Just PM. I work M-F but typically work from home 2+ days per week so we're pretty flexible. We have dogs and cats and don't allow smoking in the house. Other than that we don't bite much.

    If you need gritty city Atlanta, you got a bed in a room or a couch with some dogs. Take your pic, my friend. I'll be kicking it with the old schoolers, hope to see you there!
