    OK, crap. You FF's can stay here if ya like. My place sucks. Nothing like the great shops and land posted by others. And I am a sorry host. Bring yer own beer, sleep on the floor or in the backyard. My music collection sucks so don't even think of uploading any of it.

    I've had a few ADVriders stay here and they all say they will never come back. I don't blame them. But if you need a place to stay at the crossroads of the south, give me a shout.

    That would be Denton, Texas. 30 miles north of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metromess.

    Slaughter, LA

    Baton Rouge, Louisiana

    I'm a little north of Baton Rouge Airport and a little south of Slaughter, LA. I've got three extra acres for lots of camping, but pretty bare conditions right now.

    Carport and Basic Tools
    Tire Changing / Oil Changes not a problem
    Have truck and trailer if recovery is necessary
    Internet / WiFi
    UPS / FedEx (inbound tires / parts)
    Washer and Dryer, Bathroom, Shower (if you're nice to the boss)
    Fuel and ATM close by (@ 1/2 mile)
    Camping in back yard for a couple of tents if needed

    Austin, just north of downtown

    No extra beds but I have tools, garage, truck and access to trailers and a network of moto friends that can get just about anything done, anytime.

    If yer really hardup for a place to camp there's room for tents in the yard, the dogs might lick you to death tho.

    Clyde, NC... but north of I-40, off off NC 209 in the mountains.

    Great view, flat n' grassy, primitive. If we're there in our house, you're welcome.

    You must be able to ride through my twit filter: gravel road up the side of the mountain with a few steep switchbacks.

    Sweet Home, Oregon
    Here's another possibility in Oregon. I'm about 15 minutes off of I-5, on Hwy 228 between Sweet Home and Brownsville, OR. For proximity to a larger town, I'm about 35 miles northeast of Eugene. I have 10 acres, with tent space by the Calapooia river. If it is raining (often the case), we can probably find or make a dry place. I'm not much of a wrench, but I have a few tools.

    There is lots of great paved and unpaved riding close. I'd be glad to help anyone plan out a ride or two in the area.

    There's room for a couple tents in the back yard. Nottingham, NH - middle of nowhere, center of everything.

    This thread is a really nice jesture, and a damned fine idea. Good to know there's still some good old fashioned friendly people left out there.

    Wicheetaw, KS but longing for Texas
    I have a patch of land near I-35 in the Wichita KS area. It is available for camping by a lake with shade trees and I have a garage that has workspace, tools, and a large dry area to throw down for a stay. I regularly host travelers who need to do their own service in a secure environment. It's available for advriders looking to stretch their travel $$

    Slower, Not Slowest.
    We're in.....we have room for tents in the yard. We have a grill and I would cook you a meal if you didn't want to go out to eat.

    I always have enough free beer for 3 armies!! I like to help people work on their bike and have a garage and tools. We live less than 30 minutes from the Blue Ridge parkway and we're surrounded by some of the best roads in the Southeast.

    Now the bad news.....We have billions of hungry mosquitoes.

    All are welcome
