    I an apartment in Fayetteville close to the university. Not really a lot of room for anything but if you don't mind a sofa then there is room.

    Basic hand tools and metal working tools. I have access to more if you let me know in advance what you need.

    Howdy--

    My wife and I finally have settled back down after a crazy 2 years. She traveled to 4 states with her grad school rotations, and I bought an old BMW GSA and rode it to freaking Ushuaia. She flew down to Belize for Christmas, and we got pregnant. So she walked across the graduation platform 8 months pregnant, and our little man came about a month later. So there are 2 big people here, 1 little person and 1 12 year old black lab named Ed.

    In any event, we have a spare room that we'd love for you to stay in if you need a place to crash for a day or so. No long term stays. We've had a few ADVers stay at our place in Boise before we broke camp, and each experience has been great.

    I have a bike trailer you can use, plus you can use my car if you need it for any reason. We have a rad park across the street, and we are close to grocery, the interstate, Lake Whatcom, downtown, blah, blah, blah.

    PM me and we'll see if we have anything planned for your arrival.

    Edit March 2015: Our black lab, Ed, died just a week before reaching 13 years old. He was a good dude and I miss him. However although we lost big Ed, my wife is currently brewing our second child with an expected arrival date in the first half of August. So we currently have one spare bedroom for a short stay through August, at which point it may be tough for us to host anyone for a while. Please feel free to PM me, though, and we'll see if we can help you. I'm always willing to help a fellow ADVer.

    All best,

    Aventeren

    If you need to visit Boston area, I'm in Everett, MA, zip O2149. Close to Logan Airport for fly & buys.
    Spare bedroom, tons of floor space inside. 2 car garage with multitude of tools, harbor freight tire changer & tools, small air compressor. I do 95% of my own bike work so most tools should be available. Hoping to get a small welder soon. Have a torch, jacks, can set up rigging in the garage rafters, etc.
    Being stuck in the concrete jungle, no real camping on my lot unless you like to sleep in the garage or on pavement. Plenty of room & beers in the house usually.
    House is kid free. :clap

    - Plenty of room for you to put up a tent (farm).
    - Couch in the garage mancave if it's raining.
    - Tools/lift/tire changing stuff.
    - Truck/trailer if you're broken down/need lift to dealer.
    - 1 mile from 24hr Walmart/24hr Kroger/fast food.
    - Two big (friendly) dogs/two cats will keep you safe :D

    If you want to ride across some hayfields and down into the woods you can camp in private on the "back 40". Big firepit, plenty of wood, chairs, and tables.

    EDIT: 5/28/14

    We had our first Tentspace visitor over Memorial Day weekend. 20yr old Brian (bbonds_007) from PA was on the return leg of a seven week/6000mi trip to the West Coast on his Ninja 250. He wanted to spend a day at the Air Force Museum in Dayton so he spent Sunday/Monday night with us. Quite a trip, he had visited the Air Force boneyard, a Shuttle display, Deals Gap, the Million Dollar Hwy, Yellowstone, and the PCH. He departed heading for the Henry Ford Museum. Quite a treat to meet you Brian! More info about his trip here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=966822

    EDIT: 7/18/14

    Had the pleasure to host Dean (Deanman) for a couple nights as he makes his way from Seattle to the East Coast on his DR650. He will then head for Tellico Plains, TN and start the TAT to return home, completing his coast-to-coast adventure. Read about it here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=989305

    Safe Travels Dean!

    I have two options. The most consistent location is Marietta GA 20 miles north east of Atlanta. I have spare bedrooms and a shower or a nice sized backyard or deck if you prefer outdoors.

    I also have a cabin in the north Georgia mountains near Blue Ridge GA. Great twisty road riding there and fun dirt/gravel roads. About 1:45 north of Atlanta. I am not up there as often, but I am retiring 8/22/14 and after a ~30 dat TAT ride I will be pretty available there too.

    You can reach me at lhkrupa@mindspring.com.

    We have a large area, ADV riders always welcome...and we're only 1/2km from access to the AV Nackawic Forestry road that stretches on for hundreds of KM's of beautiful, forested NB at its best...streams, lakes, wild country. Truly a dual sport/adventurers dream! Tents are welcome, plus there's always some extra "beverages" and a barbecue for hungry riders:):clap

    Cheers,
