    Fixed!

    Something funky happened when they did the server upgrade a couple weeks back. Broke all the links. I thought I fixed them, but missed those two. Thanks for the heads up.

    For a non-techie like me, I was interested in looking up a place in the Austin TX area. There's so many pins in TX I can't find Austin.
    I don't suppose there's a way to search by city & state or do I have to just keep clicking on pins?

    Yes I will work on it soon. Sorry for the delay. I am going to recommend that adv'ers start using bunk a biker as an alternative, and maybe a future go to site for "tent spaces". Bunk a biker has a nice interface and is easy to add your pin as a host, https://www.zeemaps.com/bunk-a-biker_world

    The process I am using is quite a manual one and as you see it is not updated regularly.

    Why do I think that the inmates on this farm are all "family" and sorta wonder who I'll have show up if I list on bunk-a-biker?
    A guy on a DR650 vs. some loud-pipes-save-lives wahoo. Is there a difference between a motorcyclist and a biker? Or am I just being too politically correct? ;-)

    The lady that runs Bunk a Biker has to pay for the Zee map, maybe you can get ADV rider Corporate to give us a couple bucks a month?

    The lady that owns Bunk a biker rides a dr350, ironically.

    The difference I see between our Tent-Space-Map and Bunk-A-Biker is the interaction.
    On our tent space, many times a traveler will get the permission to stay and just pitch the tent and vanish the next morning.
    Others stay and visit, having a social interaction.
    Bunk a Biker is all about the social interaction. Don't just show up, sleep, pack the tent and leave.
    For me, previously owning a farm, I could give permission. Then explain the place of arrival and what/where they could use.
    They could arrive, stay to themselves or come knock on the door as they chose without obligation.
    Only off the tent space now because of no accommodations that the CFO would approve :(

    When somebody hits me up for tent space, I take a look at their posts and threads--on Adventure Rider, not on some other forum. If they're OK, they're OK. If they're an a-hole, it usually comes through loud and clear in their posts. Bear in mind, though, my "tent space" is a bedroom in my house, not a patch of dirt out in a field. I'd be less picky otherwise.

    Interesting, for me the Tent Space has been all about social interaction. My last guest spent three or four days here and we hit up a bunch of breweries, went to see a show, went out with a couple of my friends.

    Another fellow spent two days here and I picked out as many curvy canyon roads as I could and we did quite a bit of riding together.

    A couple stayed with me a few years back and ended up staying an extra day because they woke up hung over. Damn Aussie's can't hold their liquor. :lol3

    I have had a couple of visitors who were in a bit of a rush, just spending the night, but even those guys shared dinner and a few beers before bed, and I got up in the morning to see them off.

    I've stayed with about 20 folks on Tent Space; most of the time it's been just one night, but we've always shared dinner and beer, rode together with a few of my hosts, got taken for an airplane ride once...

    Bunk a Biker seems to be pretty similar. I'm a lurker on the Facebook page, but I don't currently have a place for guests, so I can't host on Tent Space nor Bunk a Biker.

    Is tent Space on advrider still active?
    On page one if I click on the tent Space link it takes me to a map but there are no pins listing locations.
    On my previous ( several months ago) if I zoomed out there were plenty and clicking on the pin took me to the advrider post offering for that pin. now nothing but the map

    Clicking on this link

    Screen Shot 2021-02-20 at 9.03.49 AM.png

    gets me this result

    and zooming in will let me see and click on pins, which lets me click on the link to the post with the relevant Inmate info.

    I'm doing this on a MacBook and using Chrome. I know in the past I've had issues with the map not loading on my phone properly, but that was usually solvable by fiddling with the browser on my phone.

    Good luck!

    When I saw your post, I tried the link and saw all the pins, then I went back about five times and the pins didn’t show up?
    Then, when Google maps opened from the link, I went to my saved page, 3DC56BDC-6F4D-45FA-8301-B9C1DB42AD23.jpeg then, clicked on maps, ABAADFEA-4BD0-4B78-A1BC-4AE7C28C165F.jpeg Voila, 5D35CC78-5E77-4DD6-9D9C-969A0EE83C06.jpeg

    Hey Jamie... Nice info. I will use the map in my trip coast to coast next August/September. Also I would like to offer my house or yard for tents to adv riders in my ares (North east of CT).
    Regards.
    Kike.

    Jamie,
    I thought you were busy with much more important things and we were supposed to use Bunk-a-biker. If that's correct, I hope Kike Castell (post above) sees this.
    You should not have to worry about updating maps at "this stage in your adventure career."
