    You can pitch a tent in the yard, but you might have a goat trying to sleep with you.

    I also have a spare bed plus inflatable one.

    It's 2016, and we're still kickin'!
    This 'embassy' for all sorts of adventurers of geography, or creativity, or Life, continues to be able to offer at least some tent space for you. One can never always tell what might be happening here, but there's space, & you and your stuff will be safe & secure.

    "We make the path by walking."...respectively, eh?!

    Adventure on!


    As you'll find here:


    I've got a fine tent space for ya. And a few good places to stash extra weight when you make a run up the Haul Road.

    Might be able to offer more but tenting space...ALWAYS.

    Just outside of Fairbanks proper, I am.

    Central PA
    Located in Warriors Mark, PA, near the intersections of PA-550 and PA-350, about 18 miles SW of State College.

    I have tent space and dry parking for your bike. If you're staying overnight, you can camp in the yard, sleep on the porch, and if you're not creepy, possibly a couch. You can get a shower too. If you're cool, I'll even, feed ya, share my beer, and let you do laundry. You can relax in the evening to a DVD movie and popcorn, or hang out on my creek deck or at the fire ring while you rest your feet and moto seat.

    I have many tools, a welder, a lift, and plenty of new & used KLR650 parts, spare inner-tubes, fasteners, etc.
    There are a few moto dealers, plenty of restaurants and other services between a 7 and 20 mile radius of my home.

    If you're from Canada, bring me a bag of Purity Hard Bread, Neilson Jersey Milk bars, Kraft peanut butter, or a can of Nestle/Carnation After Eight mint hot cocoa mix if possible!

    If we haven't been there, it's on the list.
    We're now in Woodstock, VT and happy to host ADVers. We recently retired and moved up here into the woods. We're 3/4s the way up a mountain, with 2.6 miles of town maintained dirt road to get here. We are on 16 acres and have some great ways to come and visit. If you want to camp, the back yard with huge fire pit (think visible from space) is available. On site we have a house, barn, 3 vehicle covered area (attached to the barn) and workshop with a lift and tools. All are available to you. If you'd like to stay indoors, we have a spare bedroom, full bath TV and a PC with FIOS for connection to the outside world.

    Beer is good, wine is fine, shared stories of travels are expected. :freaky

    Welcome to VT!

    Moran Nation, SE PA Chapter
    Close to York, PA. Just about five miles from the US-30 Bridge over the Susquahanna River.

    Ammenities include:

    Huge yard for tents
    or you can use the large covered porch if it's raining
    or just crash inside if it's cold.
    Tools and garage space

    Stop in for a night or three; have a beer and take a load off

    All that I ask is for a day or two of head's up to make sure that I am going to be around. If it is a weekend, we can fire up the bonfire and make a party of it. We do have a big and very friendly dog along with two cats, so folks with allergies may want to stock up on your meds.

    New Melbourne, Newfoundland
    I have a couple of acres in a tiny town called New Melbourne on the south east side of Trinity Bay a short walk from the beach.

    My little apple orchard in the back yard is an excellent tenting option and the outdoor shower is only 200 feet from that.

    If I'm home and the weather sucks I have 4 bedrooms upstairs for just such occasions, garage for maintenance, beer drinking etc. When they're out here I have all the tools and a bike lift.

    The local BMW dealer is my shop sponsor and the best mechanic on the island-let me know if you need anything. I have a Sprinter van that can transport bikes if need be.

    PM or email me for phone #, directions and my whereabouts before you come. These days I'm often far away working but there are options.

    There's pretty much always beer in the fridge, feel free to drop in and say hello.

    Not home in Tijuana
    I'm in TJ (that is... Tijuana), la libertad section, west side of the airport. 4 bedrooms, plenty of room for a few. I have some tools, but not much, I know a few local bike shops here in TJ + there is one under 10 miles away in the US.

    EDIT 02 Jun 2011. I don't live in that big house anymore, but I can offer a place to sleep, fewer tools than last time, and still close to the Otay Mesa Border Crossing.

    EDIT 20 Mar 2012. I'm building out my tools and space again. I have capacity for most repairs, compressor, a few spare (used) knobbies, work bench, lighting, couch and TV.

    EDIT 21 Mar 2013. I'm now located in Herlong, CA, 1 hour north of Reno, NV. I have tools, garage and a fridge to store your beer. I still have a place in TJ that is available, but only to sleep for a night.

    EDIT 23 Mar 2015. I used this thread in 2013 when riding through El Paso. I got a good night's sleep, and good meal and good company. As always, thanks to the guys that monitor and update these threads and maps. They deserve a thank you from everyone that's used it!!

    And now, my updated location is, in Fort Worth, Texas and sharing a house so I don't have space of my own to offer. I can offer extraction and transpo however.

    EDIT 05 Apr 2016. I am mobile around the country and at this time cannot offer reliable housing or assistance. Update to follow if/when I settle down.

    EDIT 03 Mar 2017. I'm still mobile and don't have garage space, but can offer a warmish pullout bed in my RV trailer to sleep on. I'm in Palmdale, CA currently with frequent trips to Tijuana. If I can be of help let me know.
