    I believe in "pay it forward" and have stayed with a couple of really hospitable ADVhosts in the US some 11 years ago.
    Originally from Denmark, now living in the most northern part of Arctic Norway, approximately 200 US miles south of North Cape.
    Upon request, tent space is allways free and available. I recommend open air hammocking and tenting on one of the immaculate, scenic spots around the property, which always has availability. There's always a reason to make a good campfire by the shore or in the back yard.
    When I'm home, you can also access shared facilities (kitchen and bathroom).
    When available, I might be able to accommodate you in the simple guest cabin, or you can use the old barn for workshop and sleep over.
    I live in a very remote rural district, and have a secluded beach in the bottom of the fiord, if you're into cold swims.
    My back yard mountain is awesome for even the shortest hikes up to a lake in which you can fish trout or just relax. More fishing lakes on my property above treeline. I'm also just a couple of kilometres from a wild salmon river.
    I have a decent amount of tools for repair, and can receive tires and spares on my address if you need to order along the way to or from North Cape. Also somewhat connected to local suppliers in Storslett and Alta.
    NB: Bring a mosquitonet...
    Location: Kvænangen, 69.750375, 22.1318827, about 9 US miles from E6, the main E-road going through Norway.
    I'd appreciate a heads up if you wish to stop by. Don't hesitate to contact me, especially in case of bad weather.

    Perth Western Australia
    Hi Guys, I planned for 2 years to come to the states to travel this amazing country, see some amazing places, and to meet heaps of incredible people that are on this site. So 8 weeks total duration of trip. I landed in Houston on the 13th of May. Taking a couple of days to get my bearings and sort out a bike. So organised the first week of my journey meeting 3 different people on the site.
    Only to find out that my really expensive travel insurance would not pay if I should land in hospital with the virus. My family back in Australia were freaking out and it was only prudent I get a flight back to Australia ASAP. Well I found a flight leaving that afternoon, lucky as 90% of flights had already been cancelled. Well I am home now and in 14 days quarantine.
    I live in Perth Western Australia, I would like to offer up 2 spare rooms, garage and workshop, a
    lawn space and shower. I have local knowledge of bike mechanics and tyre shops and some good tracks. So drop buy stay a while, share some stories over a brew.

    Charlie Bravo's dad here; approx 40 miles south of the TAT , Little Rock, AR. three acres available to camp out back, but no one ever has, as they always end up crashing in the spare bedroom. Garage and storage space also available for trailers, etc. We were on the TSCT at one time, but for some reason our info is gone and we want back on! We have met some of the coolest folks ever...

    I have a nice flat side yard for camping. Garage space or street parking is ok in my neighborhood too, some tools for small repairs and not to far from BMW,KTM and Ducati if parts are needed. At some point I'm probably gonna fix up an outdoor shower this summer. After the world returns to comfortably spreading germs I'll probably offer up a back bedroom/shower but for now its just outdoor living. South Pasadena

    Hood River, OR
    White Salmon, Washington, in the Columbia River Gorge, just across the bridge from Hood River, Oregon. Our free backyard 'Bates Mototel' moto campground is a perfect stopover between the Washington and Oregon Backcountry Discovery Routes.

    We're 5 miles from downtown White Salmon, where you'll find a grocery store, hardware store, pharmacy, auto parts, coffee, brewery, and several good restaurants.

    We have 8 tent sites situated around a parking area, created specifically for moto travelers. There's a porta-potty, an outdoor shower with hot water, an outdoor grill and stove, and a spot to recharge your phone, camera, and batteries. The 'Dusty Lizard' tent lounge is available to escape the elements if the weather is cold or wet. There are extensive hiking/cycling (not moto) singletrack trails across the street.

    There is a KTM & Honda dealership in The Dalles (Fun Country, 20 miles) and a Yamaha dealership in Hood River (Mid Columbia). The nearest BMW dealership is in Portland (BMW of Western Oregon).

    We'd love help with improving the camping area, from anyone who's skilled in such things. Any contributions that will improve the experience for future visitors, are much appreciated.

    Email Jenn & Paulina, they'll have the details: moskomoto (at) moskomoto (dot) com.

    Arkansas Ozarks
    Offering tent space in North Central Arkansas. Closest towns are St Joe (pop. around 130) and Gilbert (pop. around 30) and about a mile from the Buffalo National River. Not too much of a detour from the TAT.

    Have plenty of tent space along spring fed Tommahawk Creek. Or, if you a weary of putting up and tearing down the tent, I can offer a 10x10 elevated play house right by the creek. The spring water comes out around 50degrees so while it won't keep your beer ice cold,,,, it's cool at least.

    We have a large shop in case the bike needs attention.

    Make sure you are on a dual sport or adv bike though as a Hardly Ableson or a 'Wing would have a rough go at it on the 5 miles or so of dirt road it takes to get here. But hey,,,, if you feel up for it, come on! I've been known to take a FJR in alot worse!!!

    PM me here a few days in advance if at all possible.
