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 #32.

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.

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.:sun:

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.

Sounds like you have a great place there Garfey. Any decent fishing in that stretch of the river?

If I'd fix the flat on the mower and do a few laps in the yard, it would be a lot better, but . . . . . :oops:

Based on the lack of vehicles stopping there (there's a "trail" from 204 down to the river, under/by the bridge), apparently not. Note that if someone was actually down at the river, I couldn't see a vehicle from the road; but the trail is grassy and not well defined, hence I conclude not much use. Note also that this is the Angelina bottom, not far from where it comes bubbling out of the ground, and really shallow. I've been meaning to go check it out, but haven't; however, in my defense I'll point out that I've only been here since Nov '98 so there's been little time. :lol2:

amazing roads out the front door. Pisgah Nat'l Forest 1 hr away. Outer Banks 5 hrs away.
No foo-foo "bed and breakfast" - farm fresh eggs raised here. We have basement bedrooms with bath; would share with college son on most weekends
Can pitch a tent if you really want to :shrug:
Tools, parking, gated
Not free, but cheap for TWTexans. We just ask for a donation to help offset some of the costs - whatever you think is fair.
Can be easily persuaded to throw something on the smoker for additional $ - ribs, salmon, pulled pork, brats, brisket, pork tenderloin.

I'll throw my hat in the ring.

As some of y'all know, I have a deer hunting cabin with bunk beds, outdoor shower, heat/AC, & cooking implements. Always open to TWTer's. 10 miles south of Graham, TX near Possum Kingdom Lake.

Terlingua, roughly ten miles off the paved road north of the ghost town. Great views, fire pit, charcoal grills and a smoker. Off grid and on water catch. If you fear the water in Mexico you might want to bring your own bottled water. Great views and incredible stars. Several good spots to put up tents. Access is decent in the dry season with winter being the best. Summer monsoons can make my road impassible.

PM for more details or find me on Facebook.

Floor space, parking, bike shops nearby, food everywhere... Denton near UNT.

Can pick up humans and/or smaller bikes as needed (hitch hauler).

If you want to set up a tent in the living room, I guess you could but it's optional. Cheers!

5 acres with a decent camping place in the tree line towards the back of the property as long as it's not raining, but tents can go up anywhere.

750SqFt garage with heat/air and half bathroom, I've got a cot in there for anyone that wants to use it

Trailer and hitch so I can retrieve any bike with a 63 inch or less wheel base limited by trailer length. For reference I can fit a VSTROM650 on there with a little room to spare.

I have a 30 acre spot on the San Gabriel river near Thorndale, with fire pit and table. I need to build an outhouse soon to make it more hospitable, but the area down by the river is really peaceful and nice. Couple ponds up top of the place to fish in as well. Just have to negotiate a field with a few longhorns, which by the time anyone actually wants to come here, should be well accustomed to an occasional motorcycle passing through. Plenty of space up top as well if you want a animal free ride into the place.
Water, tools and shop, trailer for breakdowns. Don't know anything about welding but would give it a try on your bike :-) Ed
