  • Looking for some VRA hospitaity

    I am planning a ride from my home in Wisconsin to Dayton, Oregon.
    I'm on a tight budget and I'm hoping to find a couple VRA members that would welcome me into their home for an overnight stay. I'll be riding out in mid June, probably around the 19th. Listed below are the areas and the dates I hope to arrive.


    My first day will be over 700 miles and will end around North Platte, Nebraska. June 19th
    My second day will cover 750 miles and I'm hoping to reach Salt Lake City Utah. June 20th
    My third day will be another 700 miles and finishing around Redding, California. June 21st


    I'll be starting my return trip to Wisconsin on June 28th and could use some more help, but I'll be using a different route.

    Return day one will be around 600 miles, ending around Missoula, Montana. June 28th
    Return day two will cover another 600 miles and will end around Buffalo, Wyoming. June 29th
    Return day three will again cover 600 miles and end in or near Sioux Falls, South Dakota. June 30th


    If anyone can help a weary biker, please contact me or post a reply. If my dates change, I'll let you know

    Here are links to my planned routes.
    Wisconsin to Dayton, OR.
    Oregon to Beloit, WI.

      Thanks, but I'm not going far enough south to even enter Missouri.

            Here is an update on my travel plans. I am now leaving a day early on June 18th, and also leaving a day early on my return trip home.
            Nights in
            RED are already set. Nights in Yellow I could still use accommodation help.

            Day 1, June 18th, I will stop for the night around Omaha NE.
            Day 2, June 19th will take me in the Denver CO. area.

            Day 3, June 20th gets me to Salt Lake City, UT.
            Day 4, June 21st will get me to Redding CA.

            My return days are as follows:
            Day 5, June 27th has me ending in Spokane, WA
            Day 6, June 28th should get me around Bozeman, MT
            Day 7, June 29th Gets me to Buffalo, WY
            Day 8, June 30th I hope will get me to Sioux Falls, SD

            If you can help me with overnight accommodations for the yellow dates, please contact me either through this forum thread, via email at marcvanderpal@charter.net, or you can call or text me at 608-290-3854

                  No, I never posted this on Facebook. My reason behind not posting on the Facebook page was that it would quickly get buried and lost under all the other posts. It's to late to make a post now, my accommodations are all arranged and I'm ready to head out this Sunday.
