Two Wheeled Texan Tent Surfing

If you have tent space to offer up to a fellow TWT member, please post your information to this thread. A placemark, with a link back to your post, will then be added to a (public) map.

Please include your basic location (i.e. City/State, Road Intersection, etc. But not address.) to make it easier to add a placemark on the map. Briefly describe what accommodations you have to offer (tent space, garage, bike tools, etc.) If you have accommodations for tree hangers (hammocks), you might include that information too. Then add your contact information (i.e. phone number, email address, or simply say “PM me”). After you are directly contacted by a potential TWT camper, you can give specific directions to your place.

Tent surfers, be sure to contact the tent space host as far in advance as possible.



The map is updated through post #30.

Lightbulb Re: Two Wheeled Texan Tent Surfing

I suggest Scott Tourmeister set-up a RAN list on TWTEX. It would be called the Rider Assisted Network. It would list members on TWTEX who offer services such as garage use, trailer service and or perhaps tent areas available to it's members categorized by region perhaps city or even state. I am attaching a screen shot of RAN listing used by the ST-owners.com web site.

To those looking for a place to pitch your tent or hang your hammock, here is a map. Be sure to contact the tent space host as far in advance as possible.

The map is updated through post #3.

I guess I posted the map link for editing. I have changed the map to use Google's "Classic Map". Should be working for everyone now. Sorry about that.

Re: Two Wheeled Texan Tent Surfing

I have 68 acres of rugged ground at my farm where I do the campouts. It has 2 concrete tables(shooting benches) and some "light duty" chairs(burn proof)
Large Firepit. No water or electricity at camp area but plenty of trees. I do have water and electricity up on main highway but too many houses around. I have inclosed my shop(5 miles from farm) and have tire changer, lifts, and tools. I can weld steel. I have trailer also. My cell number is 254/248-4848. The farm has no address but I have a map on my ART website in my sig line.
Here are coordinates: 31.501910, -97.673374

Thumbs up Re: Two Wheeled Texan Tent Surfing

NW Nac County off TX204, 23mi to either Nac or Jacksonville, walking distance to the Angelina River. Tent space for umpteen, water & electricity, maybe a little A/C'd camper if I ever get around to cleaning it, space heaters for tents or whatever if it's cold, prob'ly "hanging space" but likely not mowed 'mongst the trees, spare 8' couch, "guest bathroom," covered bike parking, tools, tire change "machine" (MRP stand w/bead breaker), trailer to come getcha if needed and not too far. Small stores, restaurant, and fuel within 5mi. Always something to drink on hand & serious coffee in the AM.

Direct access to the EasTX500 "track" via dirt roads you DO NOT want to be on after a good rain. Nice narrow oiltops thru the woods w/tree tunnels, bridges, and chances to get lost but you'll come out somewhere so who cares.

PM or Email - I might not be there.
