You should include such things as your location, contact information (some people include a phone number or email address), what kind of digs you offer, can you help fix a bike or change a tire?

If you're looking for a place to crash, go to the Tent Space map (located here: and find someone who's willing to host you. It's best to make contact at least a couple days in advance, but some people can put you up at a moment's notice. You never know.

Contact Jamie Z with any Tent Space questions.

dude this is a great idea. i asked about something like this just over a year ago but never followed up.

i'm in nyc (riverdale) and i can offer a couch or thermarest. the place is a studio so don't expect a ton of privacy. but one or two people could crash with no problem. plenty of safe on the street parking. safe residential neighborhood just north of manhattan. public transportation to anywhere.

Tent space 20 miles south of Houghton, MI.

Couch space inside if you're OK with a 100lb. malamute and bachelor mode housekeeping.

6/26/12 Update: I no longer have a malamute, but still take bachelor mode housekeeping to new heights. :D

Yard now has a designated fire pit, too. Which is slightly more formal than just setting fire to anything anywhere.

6/28/12 Update: Askel got a girlfriend. Despite my best efforts, bachelor mode housekeeping has pretty much been eliminated. And there's now a small, hyper, and totally misbehaving but in an endearing way dog and cat who will pretty much ignore you.

I have no idea how to do a frapple map. If someone knows how, and wants to create one for this, I'll be glad to add the link to the first post.

btw TDH ... you "In"? :D

UPDATED 06/13: Just outside Charleston, SC. A room or backyard for you (your choice), garage parking for your trusty steed, everything necessary for routine maintenance and some advance teardowns. Fire pit in the back yard, fully-stocked beer fridge.

Oh, great Costa Rican cooking!!:D Must be dog friendly.

I've hosted a handful of ADVriders, and you've all been great. We're in Cross Plains, a small town just west of Madison, WI. We have a garage, tools and a guest bedroom and bath. You could camp in the back if you really want to. We cook, and there are several restaurants within walking distance.

Come on by. :freaky There are pretty good roads here, too.
