I spoke to Kim at the pub yesterday, there are no more rooms of course, but the paddock out back she reckons will hold around the 50 mark. Without seeing it myself, hard to judge. Due to US trip preperations, I may be unable to make it so I cannot book anything else yet, I will take a punt on some space when I turn up. Of course, if I have sold my bike by then I will be a no show anyway

Kim did mention they only have two types of on tap, Carlton draught and another funny mexican I forget. She is going to organise some XXXX Gold and Toohys New slabs, so if you want specific , best you oder it now

See ya there I hope

Cheers

I suppose I should have asked here before I asked my 13 year old daughter if she wants to come.

So can teenagers come to this event to?

Should be there for Friday morning,have to pay my money at the gate as ive learnt on this trip that it doesnt pay to plan for more than a few days ahead........especially as Im currently staying at a huge backpackers hostel that has a large amount of German/Dutch female backpackers that seem really intrested in my increasingly vivid and imaginative stories of biking around Oz,plus the cheap on tap here.

I know Im being so shallow.....but Im only human.

We're leaving around 0830 with a couple of others from Canberra.
Sorry we'll miss you - will have a cold one waiting . . . .

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
