    We're just off of Highway 16 West, 10 min west from the junction of highways 16 & 97. Our house sits on a 7 acre lot in a rural area, there's over an acre of lawn with plenty of shade or sun, whatever you prefer for tenting (but there's a shower and a spare room if you need a break from the great outdoors, also).

    Plenty of covered storage for parking your bike(s), and with our two 80lb furry kids roaming the yard, 'safe storage' is an understatement. I've got a reasonable collection of tools if minor repairs are needed, and I've got a utility trailer with chocks/tiedowns for up to 3 bikes if nearby rescue or retrieval and transportation to a local shop is required.

    And of course, there's always an ample supply of cold beverages on hand! :freaky

    You can find us on Google Earth/Maps here:

    53°49'52.97"N
    122°54'29.25"W

    PM me for more information if needed. Cheers!

    PS. A short list of some of our esteemed guests... thomas.clark while piloting Vermin's beloved 'Cack' south from Alaska, job3-14 (Wil & Amanda) on their year-long ride to the 4 corners of Canada and the US, Questor and MotoAdventureGal during their trip to Alaska, D2D and back just in time for our Canada Day party, Incendo and MrsIncendo on their way to Prudhoe Bay & Inuvik, JediMaster as he continued his +5 year RTW adventure, and Moose_DK (of Moose and Mini) on one of their annual trips over to NA from Denmark... to name just a few.

    That reminds me... I reallllly need to pick up a guest book for inmates to sign this season!

    Near CA 91 and CA 241, (off the North end of that intersection), just up the hill a bit from the river and Featherly Park, (camping by the freeway).

    Eastern Edge of Orange County.

    Large living room space, or concrete deck camping. Under the stars, palms beside the pool.
    Couch or puffed up beds too. So, we can sleep 2 couples.
    Showers, washer/dryer... The usual.
    Desert is about two easy hours east, The kingdom of the Mouse and the coast are about 40 minutes the other direction.

    Oh, the pool is a hot tub, there is a grill I am skilled at burning things on.

    Garage space for two motorcycles. Some tools, (I used to be a mechanic, but now I only do my own work, so I can point and coax.) Probably even squeeze a sidecar in there.

    2 cats live here, take that as a warning.

    Stories always welcome. Wireless internet available.

    Guest bedroom available in a lovely 3-bedroom home between Nelson CBD and the airport, with views of Tasman Bay and the Western Ranges. Very small patch of lawn if you really want to use your tent. Wireless internet for your devices. Off-street parking for cars / vans, and large garage/workshop space for bikes. I do most of my own routine servicing; you are welcome to use my stuff to do whatever you gotta do. :lol3 I have a bike trailer if needed for retrieving broken bikes.

    We have hosted quite a few travelers over the years and really enjoy their visits. :freaky

    I live in a very small rural town on 3 good sized lots. Plenty of room for tents and your welcome to build a fire or use my grill. Come on in for some AC, a shower or to do some laundry. I have a 4 car garage stocked fairly well with tools. I have a well setup motorcycle retrieval trailer and plenty of wrenching room.....could even store a broken down bike for awhile. Nearby dealers for HD, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Victory. BMW dealer is about 1 hour away. One of my friends runs the local independent shop.....and another is the asst manager at a NAPA. Stop by and hang out.....

    I have a decent sized yard around my single-family home, or I can set you up indoors.

    Garage has a reasonable appointment of tools, and the resident bikes may even consent to share their space with your ride if it asks nice. :evil

    Being in the middle of Ontario suburbia there's all kinds of shops, restaurants, and other facilities nearby, you can also take your chances with my cooking, or make use of something that looks suspiciously like a BBQ if you need to send smoke signals and call for help. There's also high-speed internet available on-site which can make quick work of uploading your digital cargo.

    If you're looking for recommendations of far-off places to experience, I've ridden over 32,000 miles across North America's four corners and am quite willing to swap lie...er... tales.

    To make contact, transmit your encrypted datastream here. :evil Assuming you pass the "Identify Friend or Foe" check, I should respond within a day, if not sooner. :thumb

    Have a couch, a front yard, and a bunch of Italian family members who'll cook you a semi-decent dinner. Nearest big cities are Tampa and Orlando (they're actually both 50 miles away, we're kinda in between).

    At 84 Canon Park, on the west edge of Boulder, you can have:

    1. German-made bed in loft (as comfy as your touring machine), or

    2. tent space on lawn, or

    3. sleep on my private deck hanging over Boulder Creek, hear the water rushing beneath you.

    4. Garage space available. Basic tools. Service: House of Motorrad just across town.

    Walk to cafes, restaurants and bookstores on Pearl Street in 15 minutes along Boulder Creek.

    Note: I do have a feline (if you are allergic).

    Stowe: 140+ acres but most of it is too wet for camping much of the year. Better tent space closer to the house in my meadow; best to arrive in daylight so you don't set your tent up on a pile of sheep crap. Friendly dogs will kiss you enthusiastically, but only after eating sheep poop. Sheep start bellowing at 6am. Cell phone reception spotty and only if you stand on one foot and hop in clockwise circles while leaning to the left. Electric fencing for the sheep that you definitely don't want to piss on. Inmates welcome for a day or two, possibly longer if you have no undesirable traits. :D

    On the plus side, beer, great coffee, shower, sometimes even a spare room, good conversation unless I've had a bad day at work in which case I'm socially inept. Have a pretty good assortment of tools including a tire changer. Generally have a few GS tires with 30% tread left if you need one in a pinch. Dealers for most brands about 40 miles away in Burlington VT. Plenty of great restaurants down in the valley a few miles away. One hill over from the Trapp Family Lodge, five miles to Smugglers' Notch and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Wife worked in the tourism industry for 20 years so she knows all the attractions and I know pretty much all the local roads. Fellow sidecarists especially welcome.

    Dirt road easily handled by everything but cruisers and monster touring machines with traction control. Think rural.

    Craftsbury Common: 10.6 rolling acres of pasture in the heart of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. One paved road in the entire town, but miles of scenic dirt roads in some of the prettiest country anywhere. Half a mile to the general store and its awesome deli. Everything else is at least ten miles away. Half an hour from the Hill Farmstead Brewery, home of some of the best suds anywhere. Also half an hour from the border with Quebec. Home is still a construction zone, so for 2015 the only amenities I can offer would be a functioning toilet and a garage for your bike.

    Did I mention the dogs?

    I'm about 5 miles outside of town, up Hwy 52 W toward Chatsworth. I've got a large finished basement with a couple of mattresses, it's own bathroom and a good view.

    Awesome dual sporting area with great roads and trails in all directions. I actually live inside the Chattahoochee National Forest, the Cohutta wilderness is at the end of my street and you can ride to TN or NC on dirt.

    A garage with tools and space for a bike or two.

    I have 2 cats so if you're allergic it may not be a good choice. I'm a non-smoker so if you must it's gonna be outside no matter how cold it is.

    I've got an extra bedroom w/a queen bed and a crash room upstairs w/a full size bed. Garage space for bikes. No need to camp! I do have a dog who sheds so if you're allergic, my place may not be ideal for you.

    We've just recently got a camp in the Ocala National Forest about 5 miles north of Salt Spring and 15 miles south of Palatka. Plenty of places to camp or throw down a mattress. We've got a few air mattresses.

    WARNING: 2.5 miles of sand road to get in. For a consideration - we might come out with the truck to load you up and bring you in. :-)

    NOTE: We are there November 1 through early April ONLY. Summer months we're in NY state (same email).

    CONTACT US AHEAD OF TIME! Internet reception is poor until we hookup with a satelite. Give us time to get your message when we go to town, which might take a few days.
