    Got some space for a tent, fire pit, a shed for storing the bike (or two) securely, water (cold only :D). And if you`re really nice, then I may even find a couple of beds and a roof above your head (nothing too fancy though). And of course, if need be, there is a good chance of finding some tools. I can also show you around, show all the nice places to visit in the area, and also might even be able to hook you up if you`re travelling north from here.
    The only catch is that I`m currently in Vancouver myself, and will be coming back early September. If you are there sooner, my little brother might do the honors.

    I've got plenty of tools in the garage and am more than willing to help with repairs. I've been a diesel mechanic for 12+ years now, not a lot of experience with bikes but I can figure most things out. I can setup an air mattress in the spare room and offer use of the shower for a night or two.

    I've been a long time lurker of this forum for many years. I wanted to offer a place to pitch a tent in the backyard. It's not as luxurious as some of the other offerings but it'll be safe.

    I live in North East Philadelphia. I can offer my backyard to pitch a tent or two. You can park in the driveway. I have some metric and a lot of SAE tools and a motorcycle jack. Beer will always be available. A meal is possible too. A shower is also possible. Just be mindful of the neighbors. Even a warm bed if notice is given.

    I am about 15 minutes off 95 and about 20 minutes off the PA turnpike.

    Please try to have a day or two notice and email prior to visiting. I'll give you my phone number through emails.

    Edit: Here's my phone number for text or calling:

    Six zero nine - five zero six - eleven seventy seven

    If texting please include your user name.



    Ride safe everyone.

    The last 9 month I rode the panamericana from Alaska to Argentina and now I want to offer a place to stay when you are travelling through Germany. I live in Suhl and Erfurt (both Thuringia) and I can offer a couch for 2 people. Some tools available if needed.
    My moms house in Stendal (Saxony Anhalt) has a very big backyard to put a tent on. Tools and garage available if you have to fix something on the bike.
    Contact me a couple of days (or weeks) in advance: maheerwagen(at)gmx.de

    I have a spare bedroom in Phoenix, AZ and couchspace and moderately large garage with bike lift, workbenches, air compressor and other basic tools for fellow gearheads.

    Also have RV parking with a 50 amp service for those who are traveling in a rig. Or if anyone is looking long term or winter getaway, I would rent the RV pad out as well. In addition, the backyard has an RV gate for parking more junk.

    I am also currently building a bicycle pumptrack in the backyard, will have a hot tub up and running soon, and a full DJ level sound system in the house and garage. :D

    Good sized (couple of acres) grassy yard for tent camping with firepit. There's an outhouse for campers too. Small shop with basic tools. Can retrieve a lighter bike with a hitch hauler.

    Note: we have animals including dogs, cats, chickens and geese. The rooster and geese can be obnoxious early in the morning. But we can usually give you a few eggs too for your breakfast. We're located close to Route 3, so logging trucks and other trucks occasionally pass by.
