    A couch for a European traveler needed this summer.

    Hi all, Friend of mine is planing to travel across US and Canada this summer and I'm looking for a safe place for her to crash overnight.
    She will be traveling alone so "SAFE" is the key. I know there is allot good folks out there who will spare couch to a traveler just like I would do.
    The route is not fully set yet but almost complete, I will keep updates coming.

    She is a 27 year old and love to travel, lives in Warsaw Poland. She rode across Europe with a friend on a little 125cc Suzuki's and now the big continent got her going forward.
    As at now I can't say what motorcycle she will be riding on but soon we will get the official info.


    What I'm asking for:
    Would you spare a couch in exchange of great travel story?


    If you can help please reply with you Zip and we will add you to the route map, I will get the official route soon for everyone.

    Also feel free to pm me.

    Ride Safe, Martin

    Here is a pic of her after completing European tour.



    Edit:

    Here is a updated map of the ride, I'm not sure if it is in alphabetic order but those are the points of interest.



    UPDATE
    Veronika landed April 23 2014 in New York and curently traveling south west on the roads of Jersey and Virginias.

    Martin, we need to know her approximate travel dates as many of us are also on the road during the summer.

    I would encourage her to route the trip along the north shore of Lake Superior. Scenery is spectacular and the road is a treat.

    Otherwise she's not coming through this neck of the woods so I can't really help out.

    95301, looks like she is coming right down Hwy 99 in Cali. If timing is good, I have a couch in a safe 'hood.

    I second the idea of going north of Lake Superior. It's worth it.

    98596. Spare bedroom and bath. And my doctor at the VA is a Polish woman, so could arrange a visit. Hope my wife and I will be home when she comes through.

    She's not really going to miss the ENTIRE WEST COAST by riding I-5 for 3 or 4 days, is she?

    If she's in Ontario in August, I can help out with the couch and a trip to Niagara Falls. Not on her map, but worth the side trip.

    This thread might be a help.

    I would LOVE to meet someone from Warszawa! I've long been fascinated with Polish history and would relish the opportunity!

    We have a guest room in a 160 year old farmhouse on a forested hillside in northern Vermont. My wife has worked in the state tourism industry for decades and can fill your friend in on all the local sights and attractions. I'll help with route selection. She must love dogs, though. We have three very friendly golden retrievers (including Barley the sidecar adventure dog), and at least one considers the guest bed his own, though is happy to share.

    Must know the dates, though. Barley and I will be riding the entire month of July.

    Oh, and I highly concur with the suggestion to ride over Lake Superior.

    If she comes thru Montana, and why in Heaven's name would she not come thru Big Sky country, she's welcome to stay with Annie and me in Helena. She can also have access to a fully equipped shop. As with everyone else, timing is everything. mid-June to late July are heavy travel times.
