Tentspace thread on advrider.com

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'ld post up somethong about the "Tentspace" thread on advrider.com.

The links associated with this thread are:

Tent Space Sign-Up Thread - Page 64 - ADVrider

Tent Space Map - Page 6 - ADVrider

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=http:...339844&t=m&z=3

Or a Google Search: http://tentspace.ridetoeat.com/artents.kmz

I'm thinking that with three HU meetings in Australia this year, this may be an excellent resource for those travelling as well as an opportunity for people who want to "give back". I'm also thinking that I may well use this a fair bit next year when I travel down to the Adventure Travel Film Festival again ( work and study permitting ).

I'll post onto the relevant HUBB sections for the individual HU meetings as well.

Regards,

Shane

I have used it and had a much better response rate than with couchsurfing. It is a good way to find somewhere to stay and meet up with other motorcyclists, many of whom have an interest in travel.

I think this is a great idea. Should we really piggy back on theirs or should we start our own is the only thing i wonder?

Also (XRV.ORG)
A group of us in the UK also had a SAFE HOUSE list which was basically a rescue service. You broke down there was a place to get your bike and some had tools, trailers..

I met a Danish couple who hosted me, and took me riding through loads of back roads and villages. They said they lived off it when they rode around the states.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
