Hi Chet. Message understood. I decided to hold off adding custom fields to the profile until we go to the next major rev of the forum software; It will have a built-in capability for adding fields to the profile without the need for me to do any custom coding.

Here's a great resource for anyone with a VW. Any Model. It's basically a list of places to stay along the road. If you run into mechanical trouble many people offer tools, garage space and a second pair of hands. Don't forget to reward their hospitality, many Airs users list their favorite "beverage" as payment  :)

Just saw this, has your Illinois stay already passed this year?  We are located between Bloomington and Peoria off of I-74.

We now have 30A and water to offer to any forum members passing through.  Dump station available at a couple CG's within 5-10 miles.  The driveway may be a tight fit width-wise with our MH parked there along with a guest rig, so you might want to plan on keeping the slides in.  ;)

If we are home, we have an overnight guest parking place with 50A power and water, no sewer.  We are located north of Taos in a rural area and you'll need to PM us for directions.   There is one 90 deg turn from the main road that might be tight for some rigs, especially with a toad.   Thanks, G.

Where are you located in regards to Confluence or Somerset PA. I have a cabin outside of Somerset and will be there next week, since I can't get my 36' Dp into my cabin site, I'm searching for somewhere to park it for about 5 days

Thanks in advance

May I suggest that those inquiring about using a freebie place use email or a Private Message to reach the site owner (icons for both under the avatar). You will have a much better chance of getting a timely response that way.

Hello to all.
We have an overnight parking area ,at least till the house sells,  for anyone passing thru the Conroe Texas area. Conroe is located about 30 miles north of Houston on I45. We are out in the country about 7 miles west on highway 105 just a mile from lake Conroe. It is a concrete back in site with 50A power and water, no sewer.   Actually its our driveway but its huge!  It can accommodate at least a 50’ fiver or motor home. I also have every tool imaginable and can lend a hand with repairs when I am available. We also have a 40x60 heated and air conditioned shop (where our Carri-Lite sleeps) if needed. No traffic, very quiet, very clean and above all very safe. Plenty of room to open the slides or park a toad. Forum members are welcome to stop by. Just send me a PM or an email with a request and I'll be happy to supply details and our phone number. We are usually home for now  and plan on full timing when the house sells so stop on by. Hope to meet some of you in the future. Chip and Janette                          falconhunter@consolidated.net

I live in Andover, MN, about a half hour north of Minneapolis.  In my driveway I have room for a 40' with water, 30 amp electric and sewer.  In the back yard we have room for another 40 footer with 30 amp electric.  Water is about 250' away, which I have enough hose for but not of the potable water variety.

1 free spot 1.5 hours south of Atlanta right off I-75

I have one spot for a rig in front of my house.  Would be for an overnight only as anything over one night is considered RV storage and they frown on that here.

I can top off your water tanks and give you free WIFI -  I can run a extension cord out to your rig and I got a keg of beer in my garage in a kegorator. 

All you need to do is bring me a nice cigar so we can smoke while we drink. lol..

My area is great cause I am 1.5 hours south of Atlanta and 8 mins from I-75

I would be a good stopping point before going through Atlanta.  I typically leave at 3:45 AM and you can get through Atlanta on anyday with no traffic. 

Do not try to go though Atlanta in rush hour anytime.  The road stops to a crawl.  My advice would be to come here early and get a good rest and start early the next day.

Email  zeekxxx@gmail.com direct if you need a good rest and free beer!

Hello everyone. I am Daniel a vietnam era veteran living in the pretty appalachian mountains 55 miles NW of Harrisburg Pa which has I-81 and I-76 running thru Harrisburg area. I am between that intersection and state college Pa off route 322 where i recently saw a ring neck pheasant running across the road. I live here with my 88 yr old mother on our pretty farm 300 yards below a 2000ft mountain with a trout stream running through my property that comes right off the mountain just 1/2 mile away. I have a camper / RV parking spot that mom and me use to use before i rebuilt this old 1820 balloon frame appalachian house. I also have an old log house i am rebuilding. Eventually i want to bring vets from VA hospitals here for a day or weekend etc etc for some peace and solace in these here hills. See my house and land at my site here = http://directory.ic.org/22661/Veterans_Mountain_farm___swords_to_plowshares_in_Pennsylvania

If your coming thru my region and can spend a little bit of time helping etc etc that would be great. i am doing this on a wing and a prayer but i am getting er done as they say ?;-)

NOTE: From 2000 to 2004 i drove a 96 minnie winnie all over the USA  for over 70k miles from every corner to every state in between so i know what an RV goes thru finding a safe place to park and be able to go explore and know your RV is ok and it didn't cost a fortune.

PS: NO SEPTIC HERE BUT I DO HAVE ELECTRIC BUT I KEEP MY MONTHLY BILL UNDER 12.00 A MONTH SO PLEASE HELP WITH THAT. I DO HAVE FRESH WATER HERE TOO WITH A TROUT STREAM AND A WELL. I REALLY COULD USE HELP TOO IF YOUR A BUILDER OR CAN LIFT 20 LBS.

OH THE PICTURE IS BEFORE I REBUILT MY HOUSE BUT YOU CAN SEE THE RV PARKING BEHIND IT WITH THE 2000FT MOUNTAIN BEHIND THAT ACROSS MY TROUT STREAM

Great story and best of luck on your venture. My wife spent a number of years in the Harrisburg area and is very fond of that part of the country.

Thanks for your service, then, and your service to our fellow vets now...I hope some of our skilled brothers and sisters can give you a hand.

We are located south of Puyallup, WA
We have room for a few rigs in the yard, 20 amp power and water. Yard is fenced and gated for our dog, a friendly pup is welcome.
We also have room for another when camping at our lot in Ocean Shores, so send us a PM if you plan on heading that way. Who knows, we may be planning to be there.

What a great Idea Tom to get members together and help each other.

I also can accommodate any visitor to Sydney Australia who use hire RV to tour my country. I am in Sydney Revesby only 20 kilometres from Centre and can have up to 5 RV in my factory back yard. Power, wifi and water is no problem. This would be great stop for City visitors, There is nothing close to city centre available for RV in Sydney.

Jan, that's great ! Australia is on my bucket list and now I have a place to stay one night if we ever get there. Give me a shout if you're ever in Cortez Colorado (near Mesa Verde National Park).

Jan,

You sent me a message asking if I could accommodate you for an overnight stay in May.  For some reason I can't find any way to reply to that message.

But the answer is yes, that would be fun to visit with some folks from Australia.  We have a 30 amp electrical hook up, water , and sewer right in the driveway.  And of course laundry facilities.

My personal email is dougdeterman@msn.com, that might be better.  We are located in Andover, about 30 minutes North of downtown Minneapolis.  Another option to consider is to visit Duluth, MN about 2 hours North of us.  We have a small place there on Park Point which has parking for an RV.  If you google it you'll see it's kind of a unique place.  It's a peninsula on Lake Superior, the largest fresh water lake in the world.  But then since you are from Sydney perhaps Duluth wouldn't be that exciting.  Thought I would throw it out there though.
