A THIRD Australian HU Meeting in 2013! Perth West Australia 19-20 October

Around eighteen travelers came to the special HU meeting at the Dome Café, Maylands, Perth yesterday.

There was an interesting exchange of knowledge, amusing experiences and travelling tales including:

·Vespa Scooter – Australia to England
·Africa Twin – two up UK to Australia
·KTM 990 – across Australia
·1100 – GS across Australia
·Tales of a Japanese rider on a ‘postie bike’

To name but a few!!

Several present described their positive experience of Horizons Unlimited and the Hubb and how they felt it was time to put something back.

This was following by an interactive Skype conference call with the Horizons Unlimited Founders – Grant and Susan Johnson.

We are very happy to report we agreed to hold the first Perth HU meeting – on the weekend of 19/20th of October 2013.

· Grant and Susan Johnson will be here in WA to guide us on our journey.

Perth has a dedicated group of travelers and we look forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of HU meetings in Australia here in Perth.

We look forward to welcoming you from across Australia and beyond, watch this space for further details.
Thanks, Ewen MacGregor and Dave Fox-Spencer

Perth meet - 'ride out'

presuming you mean over the meeting weekend for ride out - my plan if we can get enough helpers - is to have the meet split into two. Sat - separate location - camp out - more practical workshop & ride out would be a possibility. Sunday - trip presentations - more workshops Perth pub location...all dependent on how many folk offer to help out thanks.

It was great to meet everyone and hear inspiring stories, made me even more keen to get out there and explore.
I'm keen to help out if I can, we spoke briefly about providing paramedic/first aid info for travellers.

Cheers, Dave

Perth Meeting Update Thurs 16 th/23rd May and workshop offer

Dave,
Yes do recall our discussion and thanks we will take you up on your workshop offer. I have worked in the outdoors and also know that many HU & adventure riders would benefit from your talk/ workshop on remote first aid & first response.

How you can get involved is we will be holding a planning meeting - was going to be Sunday 19th May but due to weekends being busy - we now planning on an evening either Thurs 16 th or 23rd of May at the proposed venue. We will send out a update on the Perth HU list or anyone else who is interested can pm me

Thanks Ewen...

Sorry all, I won't be able to make it to the meeting on the 23rd May due to work commitments. I was really looking forward to catching up again (and having a or two).
Cheers,
Dave

Hi everyone,

This is just to let everyone know that the inaugural Horizons Unlimited Western Australia Travellers Meeting will be held at Yanchep National Park on Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th October 2013, with camping also available on Friday 18th. Watch the Events section of the HU website for event registration, coming very soon!

We’re pleased that Horizons Unlimited’s founders, Grant and Susan Johnson, will be attending the meeting, plus a few of our own local travellers to tell their tales. We’re still in the development stage, so if you have any suggestions about what you’d like to get out of the meeting, let us know with a post here!

See you in October!
