Work brings me to the Inland Empire, I'll pay you for a place to stay!

Hey everyone!

This is short notice.

I'm a contract delivery driver for Home Depot, and I've accepted a contract to deliver for 2 weeks in the inland empire area, around Rancho Cucamonga, Riverside, Fontana, East Vale, Ontario area.

Rather than stay in a hotel again, like I always do, I thought I would check in here and see if anyone has a room in their home that they would be interested in renting out for fair market value for 2 weeks?

Anything is better than a hotel.

I've just got to be able to park a Semi tractor somewhere within walking distance and I'm good to go. I'll be bringing a carry-on suitcase, and that's it. I've got stories to share as well if you're into that.

I'll be out of the house by 7am, and probably not back until after 5pm. Monday-Saturday.

Anyone interested?

Dates are Monday night April 20th to Sunday morning May 3rd.

I figure $500for the two week term is fair? Need more? I'm negotiable. I save money, you make money, everyone happy? Let me know!

Every once in a while the plate in my left fibula reminds me of those crashes! Not my proudest moment, but a memorable one!!!

If I can't find a host, I'll probably resort to a hotel

I would offer, but I don't have a spare room. Also, there is no commercial vehicle parking in my neighborhood. I'm registered on the ADV tent space map, but I doubt you'd want to spend two weeks in a tent, lol.

I'm half tempted to spend two weeks in a tent, considering the money saved. But you're right, it would not be very accommodating. Thanks for the offer either way!

Plenty of room in the house, and parking a semi tractor no problem....


getting to Ontario area approximately 2 hours each way ! Problem?


Camarillo is near Ventura. Take the 118 and 210 to IE and the drive is not too bad.

We rent rooms, a 'cabin' and a 'bungalow' sometimes on a short term basis. We may be able to fix you up. I don't know where you would park a big rig though. Email us and I will give you the address and you can google it and see about parking. Or call the City of Claremont and ask them. There is no over night parking in Claremont on City streets. You could call Johnnys Tree Service and ask John if you can park on his lot if you rent from us...it's across the street.
Don't even THINK about parking outside our house
No smoking
No pets
No guests (single occupancy)

Found a place to stay!

Checked in yesterday afternoon with TUCKERS and I'm glad that I did! Much better than any hotel room, and way more entertaining! I'm very happy to have had success with this post!

bigalsmith (Alex) has been great! He REALLY helped our visitor Martyn from Australia get parts for his bike. He is a fireball on the phone and knows how to get things done and moving. We had a blast fixing up Martyn's bike and shooting the shit.

I remember reading Big Al's RR about a year ago. I see THD is keeping you employed. The rr down south was a good one.

I see the Tucker's had a great place for you. Hotels suck. Reminds me, I have to book a room for tonight. Traveling for work is not much fun.

Hola! The glorious home depot is the reason for my employment, but I work alongside another guy, and we contract to the company that delivers for home depot. They are called XPO Last Mile.

I've been fortunate to have this job, as it provides the income for the future!

Hotels do indeed suck, and it looks like I'll be here at the Tuckers for a third week as well. Traveling for work is not much fun, but when the pay rates nearly triple, I find a valid excuse to hit the road!
