thanks, but usually they dont show the cheap fleabag places that smell of curry & dead hookers, which are the ones in my price range.

If you know the name of the town it will bring up a list of nearby lodging, pricing, as well as some traveler feedback.

I've read some of the reviews and some of those places sound like what you're looking for, just short the dead hookers

I use Yahoo Yellow Pages to search for motels. I think it pretty much has them all - at least any with a telephone.

We stopped for a night in Kanab UT last month on a big trip. Some of the guys stayed at a small motel we had stayed before. They had new owners and had doubled the price. One guy got 20 bed bug bites and the guy he shared the room with got none in the next bed.

I plan on camping a bit, but I'd like to know where the cheaper rooms are, so I can plan my hotel stops a little better.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Doug

Doug,

What are your dates for your trip?

My buddy and I are leaving TN 8/27 or so.

I'd love to run into you on the trail, i've followed your ride reports since i joined this site.

What will you be riding?

plan is to start the TAT aug 11, but theres an old bike auction the 14th, so I'll run to that & pick up the TAT again.

I built a harley sidecar outfit to ride on it.

Probably not long after august 20th. I wish I had someone to roll with but I'm happy enough cruising alone. I didn't want to go earlier out of fear of excess heat, but I couldn't leave any later.

I think there might be some perks to a solo trip. Obviously there are known risks.

Clem. We are starting the second half of the TAT August 24 from near Lake City, CO. Flying to Denver where we will have shipped our motorcycles. We are two 60 year olds on a KLX250s and a DRZ 400. Will look for you.
