2008 HU Meeting Canada

Hello to all the folks I met at the Ranch. If you're ever near Calgary, AB, Canada, stop by. Have a spare room, if not already booked by family (even so, there is plenty of room for a tent in the Yard)...

Had a great time at the meet. Opened up a whole new world of travel!

Thanks to all the volunteers who made it possible.

Cheers,

Kevin

Heya BB, good pics, thanx.

Anyone else have pics of the meet?

I put a few more pics in a Facebook album, it's supposed to be open to the public, I don't think you need a facebook account to see them:

2008 HU meeting in Canada

Boy you guys sure know how to hurt a guy that has missed the meeting. I wanted to come so bad but am still down in Colombia for at least another week. My wife and I would sure loved to have made it back in time. Oh well so many things and so little time. Larry and the tail gunner

Hey Larry,

Hope you're having fun.

I'm just wondering who is really doing the rubbing-in ... I'm going back to work, and you're in Columbia...

Hope to meet you next year. Keep the shiney-side up.

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.
