    I was planning a TAT trip that turned into a big road trip - I'll be going from my mom's in NE Ohio to my cousin's in Memphis and then down to New Orleans, Austin and West Texas before heading back out toward the Bay Area.

    I am interested in recommendations for places to put up my tent (or couches to surf!) - I am planning to leave leave my cousin's place on 7/30 and to take 2 days to get to New Orleans (where I will stay with friends).

    Then, I plan to leave New Orleans around 8/2, taking 2 days to get to Austin (staying with a friend - she's a mental health sheriff deputy, so no stalkers, please!), before heading to see adult cousins who I haven't seen since I was 10 years old in Lubbock/Lockney.

    Looking for recommendations for good places to camp (or offers to couch surf) one night between Memphis-New Orleans, and New Orleans-Austin.

    Check out my itinerary for route info...

    Thanks!

    Have you checked the tent space list? There are a few of us on or near your route who would be glad to open our homes to a travelling rider.

    For once that's a good weekend for me, but I'm pretty far from a direct route from Memphis to N.O.
