    IN. I'm a schoolteacher, so that means availability is limited to Fri./Sat. nights only while school is in session. Summer break (early June-early August) you're welcome anytime during the week as long as I'm not off on a trip of my own. (And I do spend a lotta time on the road in the summer.)

    I'm 3 miles south of I-10 on the west side of Pensacola. Here's what I'm offering: plenty of room for a tent, you're welcome to take a shower and/or wash clothes, garage with basic tools, and ineptizoidal skills galore. (I probably can't fix it, but I can definitely break it.) Every major motorcycle brand is represented within a 10-mile radius of my house. Even Ural!

    If you're into dualsport riding at all, I'd be happy to show you around my favorite dirt roads in the Blackwater State Forest, about 35 miles east. Give me at least 24 hrs. notice with a PM, and I'll put some meat on the grill for ya and offer a cold tasty beverage or three.

    Sorry, I don't own a couch, or have space to host a tent but there camping places in and around in HK (Nov. to Apr. better time to camp due to the extreme humidity), or tools (have never seen an non-HK bike plate yet),
    maybe my local information and or help; someone might find useful.

    I have worked and lived in Hong Kong since '97 (not constantly, lots of 6 month holiday's when time and money permits).

    PM's can usually find me.

    Hi Folks,

    If you are traveling through the San Francisco/Napa/Sonoma area I have plenty of backyard tent space and a generally have a couch to crash on if you are looking for a free place to stay. Vallejo is located just 20 minutes south of downtown Napa and about an hour from San Francisco. There is also a Ferry which runs from downtown Vallejo to downtown San Francisco which is very convenient.

    Plenty of garage space and local dealers in case you are in need or parts or service work. I've hosted a number riders over the years and enjoy providing a resource on this thread.

    Feel free to send me a PM if you are in need. Happy travels!

    Hey, hey,

    LOVE the tentspace list. I've met heaps of great people and had opportunities to do amazing things because of it.

    But there's a lot of "dead wood" on the list right now!

    I'm on the road now, and there's so many out-of-date listings, people that have moved, or been banned or otherwise M.I.A. It's making me go :baldy at the moment...

    Any chance we could have a clean-up?

    Have a good one,

    A.

    We have two acres at Blackstrap Lake that we live on. It is about 20 minutes south of Saskatoon.

    There is a camping spot that we lived at when we built our house. Building an outdoor shower and toilet this spring. Fire pit and summer kitchen will be set up.

    Willing to share it with adventures of any sort. We just ask that everyone respects our home! It is also on the TCAT route that has been established by a local rider kiffer and others.

    Just email us at corney@sasktel.net.
