    Welcome to the Tent Space Sign-Up thread.

    The Tent Space is your chance to share your interest in motorcycle travel with other members of this website.

    To offer a Tent Space, simply add a reply to this thread. You should include such things as your location, contact information (some people include a phone number or email address), what kind of digs you offer, can you help fix a bike or change a tire? Your approximate location will be added to the Tent Space map.

    If you're looking for a place to crash, go to the Tent Space map (located here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=776925) and find someone who's willing to host you. It's best to make contact at least a couple days in advance, but some people can put you up at a moment's notice. You never know.

    Contact Jamie Z with any Tent Space questions.

    dude this is a great idea. i asked about something like this just over a year ago http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=84499 but never followed up.


    i'm in nyc (riverdale) and i can offer a couch or thermarest. the place is a studio so don't expect a ton of privacy. but one or two people could crash with no problem. plenty of safe on the street parking. safe residential neighborhood just north of manhattan. public transportation to anywhere.

    I'm In Atlanta right where 75/85/20 all meet, pretty much in the middle of the city. No tent space but I have a spare bedroom, shower, and a garage with limited tools if needed.

    Tent space 20 miles south of Houghton, MI.

    Couch space inside if you're OK with a 100lb. malamute and bachelor mode housekeeping.


    6/26/12 Update: I no longer have a malamute, but still take bachelor mode housekeeping to new heights. :D

    Yard now has a designated fire pit, too. Which is slightly more formal than just setting fire to anything anywhere.

    6/28/12 Update: Askel got a girlfriend. Despite my best efforts, bachelor mode housekeeping has pretty much been eliminated. And there's now a small, hyper, and totally misbehaving but in an endearing way dog and cat who will pretty much ignore you.

    I've hosted a handful of ADVriders, and you've all been great. We're in Cross Plains, a small town just west of Madison, WI. We have a garage, tools and a guest bedroom and bath. You could camp in the back if you really want to. We cook, and there are several restaurants within walking distance.

    Come on by. :freaky There are pretty good roads here, too.

    The Swamp...

    80 miles west of Orlando and 40 miles north of Clearwater at SR-50 and US-19 in Weeki Wachee

    [​IMG]

    The old mobile home, an ongoing project that I see no end to :lol2 is a bit rustic...

    As a beer camp should be :beer

    But with central AC/Heat, two bedrooms and full kitchen/bath.

    The floor is uncovered plywood, so dirty feets can't hurt much. A wet vac is for when it gets so bad you can't stand it

    [​IMG]

    There's also a dryer for wet gear, ask Mr. Cob :poser

    [​IMG]
    and a washer still in need of being hooked-up:loaded

    Just like The Scrub I like to say it's one step above camping [​IMG]

    Although I do have to keep the place such that HoJo :raabia will tolerate it every so often

    [​IMG]

    Located on 350 feet of rural highway frontage that backs up to the Chassahowitzka Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, the locals on the flood plain refer to my camp as The Hill seeing that it's located atop the first sand dune east of the Gulf of Mexico along SR-50

    Saturdays the highway brings a continous stream of boats being trailered to local ramps

    And at times there's literally hundreds of Harley riders thundering by, each in search of an ice cold beer at The Bayport Inn :ricky

    All summer, bikini clad babes shriek in ecstacy as they pass on their way to Pine Island beach :photog

    For additional sleeping there's a 12x12 guest room, The Love Shack in the shed and also a small 1970's Scotty travel trailer, the Derfmobile :gerg

    Both have AC/heat :thumbup An additional shower/comode is in the utilty room

    Fried mullet roe and fillets for Johnny Quest :rofl

    [​IMG]

    Outside Kitchen

    [​IMG]

    Room can be made for bikes inside too if need be

    Firepit with cooking grate and plenty of wood

    Charcoal Grill and propane cooker too :dg

    No internet but the local library is only two miles away

    No cable but there's plenty of DVDs for the small TV in the mobile home

    All amenities are available from groceries to restaurants on US-19/SR-50

    Pool Hall and conveniece store both within walking distance :slurp

    Closest Bike Shop is KTM/Triumph within three miles; Kawi, Suzuki, Yamaha within seven and Honda is about 10

    A local delicacy, stone crab season runs from Oct. 15th through March :yum and we, the local ADVers have been known to eat our fill a few times here each year :dg

    [​IMG]

    I keep a key to the private neighborhood park onsite along with a canoe and kayak. Let me know if you want to paddle the river, truly one of my favorite things :thumbup

    [​IMG]

    Of course when it's cold as a beyotch out there's practically no one that uses the park. The water in the first magnitude spring fed river stays a constant 72 degrees and actually feels warm during the winter once the air temp dips below about 50 :lol3 This is the first privately owned parcel down river from the famous attraction

    [​IMG]

    Plenty of good riding in the area, both DS and street :ricky In fact there's a steady line of bikes traveling through the Citrus Game Reserve here by the house at The Farm too.
