Hello my name is Gordon and I have just joined the site. Ride a 2008 KLR among other bikes.

I live in between Oliver and Osoyoos and have a huge front lawn on a private lake which any members here are welcome to use. I will be starting a bed and breakfast specifically catering to 2 wheel traffic in the future but for now have to offer the lawn.

Exactly 10km from Oliver or Osoyoos, Deadmans lake.

P.S. No burnouts on the lawn, I'm having a hard enough time getting the bloody grass to grow hehe.

That's a great offer! I hope someone can use it. I love that area. My uncle lives in Osoyoos so I've spent a bit of time around there.

Stayed at Gordon's place on Sunday night. Had a great time BS'ing, contemplating life over beer, and generally having an all-around good time. He's got a sweet setup there, with a nice private lake, lots of shade, and plenty of room for tents.

If you're in the area, stop by at his place. He's a good guy and a motorcycle enthusiast to the core. It'll be interesting to see what comes of his plans for the place!

Thanks again Gordon! Until next time,

I am new to this site for one main reason--to compliment Gordon for his great generous offer of a tent site!



I have a brother on this site in Prince George. I toured from Walla Walla, WA with him north to his home and while there met several DSBC guys and enjoyed the entire experience. I had no idea how far south I'd make it on my way home, but my brother said if I got to Osoyoos I should visit a guy on this site who allows travellers to put up a tent on his property. I noted 'Gordon' and 'Deadman Lake', and headed south.



I figured I'd make it to Vernon or so, but I was making good time and came to Penticton while it was still light. I knew it would be easy to push on to Oliver and I'd look for Deadman Lake. It was just a few km south of Oliver, I pulled up to see a guy working in the yard, and I immediately knew I was at the right place. I was welcomed even though I was a stranger and dropped in without notice!



Gordon showed me to a convenient spot to pitch my tent--I had it up in a few minutes. He brought me a folding chair and we shot the breeze for a while until dark. I met the lady of the house (Sharon) who was every bit as hospitable as Gordon. I was a total stranger and they rolled out the red carpet for me in a way that is most amazing!



This is one of those excellent experiences that comes from sharing a common interest. Gordon has travelled the world on two wheels and is very pleased to offer a hand of friendship to a passing traveller. I resolve to offer my services in a similar way, in the attempt to follow the example of a great guy like Gordon.



If any on this site are needing a tent space or three in the Walla Walla, WA area, just come on by. If I'm here you just knock on the door. If you can PM me it will help assure I will be here. I have no lakefront like Gordon, but I have a secluded large lawn with potable water. I am a non-drinker so I have no beer but if you need a free tentspace, come on down.



Jim Shaw--I'm in the book.
