Hi Gents,

I registered a few months ago and have since sold my bike but havent purchased a new one. I assume it's alright to show up in my truck? I know I'll look like a spazz, but I rather soak in the experience bikeless then miss out at this point. I just want to make sure, there will be a place to park and camp?

Cheers,
Tom

No worries, we don't care what you drive / ride, it's all the same to us. First and foremost we're travelers! Lots of people use HU that are 4 wheel drivers, bicyclists, sidecars, trikes, whatever, it's all good.

Camping is no problem as long as you're in a tent, and pre-registered for camping. Parking is an issue, as the space is very limited - you may have to park down the road, and walk a 1/4 mile or so, not sure exactly. OR you can park up at the top in the cabin area, no problem there.

see you there!

If you haven't registered yet, get busy! the Presentation schedule is in near final draft, and it's looking amazing! And FULL!

Your biggest problem is going to be figuring out what you want to see. We start Thursday afternoon and go right through to Sunday noon, with up to 4 presentations at once.

See you there, Grant

Gettin' Ready!

I visited Camp yesterday to check on a few details with the great folks there. Everything is looking REALLY good for this year's meeting.

Afterward, I took a detour through Cambria to check in with some friends there, and found the town full of Scarecrows! They're having a Scarecrow festival all month, and businesses, organizations and residents are all creating amazing creatures - the town is full of them. Some are even on 2 wheels!

Well worth a short side trip while you're in the area.
(The photo doesn't show it, but the wheels are turning and the legs are pumping!)

See you at the meeting,

You never need to bring a confirmation email or PayPal receipt to an HU event. It's all electronic, and we've got it if you paid it. If there is an issue it's easily sorted online.

If you're mailing us a check please send a copy, but that's it.

See you there!

Thumbs up One Week To GO

Almost time to saddle up and head for Cambria. Hope we haven't forgotten anything... let see...

Lots of great vendors with their gear - CHECK
Tons of technical and how-to presentations - CHECK
Inspiring travel presentations - CHECK
Old and new friends to meet - CHECK
First hand info on destinations around the world - CHECK
Ocean front camping and great food - CHECK

...and one more thing - We'll wind up the weekend with LIVE MUSIC on Saturday night. Right after Ted Simon's presentation we'll light up the campfire and sit back under the Cambria pines to enjoy live tunes by Jill Knight.



"Jill's music delivers a southern texture to an Americana, bluesy, R & B feel that will take the listener on a wonderful ride. Its hard to say which is better-the song or the way Jill Knight sings it." Click for a preview

And one more thing - GREAT Weather! The forecast is sunny - mid 70s


All systems are GO - See ya there!

Grant & Susan! Hello from Corvallis, Oregon! I am registered to attend next week, but my plans of riding down with some friends has completely fallen apart! So, here is my delima, and I am looking for some suggestions/support from this community so I DON'T miss out on this event!

I am new to riding (on my own bike now - BMW F650GS). I purchased Serenity (her name) the first part of June this year...and I have already logged about 5,000 miles on her over the summer! Not too bad for a busy gal like me! BUT... I have NOT taken a long trip on my own, and I am feeling uncomfortable riding down all by myself.

With that said... is there any way to find out if there are individuals attending the event from the Pacific Northwest that might be riding down that I could meet up with? I am scheduled to leave the morning of October 16th and returning back home to Corvallis by the early afternoon of the 23rd! SO... Anyone out there going my way??? At least from North to South? I can always catch a ride back with my friends that will be leaving a day earlier than me. Return trip, not too worried about... Trip to California...yes... Don't want to be out there on my own! Not just yet! I have mucho much to learn! I would love to hear from ANYONE about support! Thanks a ton!!! Cheers, Nick Beachboard-Dodson!

Hi Nick,
I don't have a direct solution to your problem, but you might try contacting the HU communities in your area. The communities page lists Eugene and Portland, as well as Redding CA. It's possible someone in one of those groups is heading down to the meeting. The "Contact a Community" page is Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Travellers' Community - Contact a Community!

Good luck, and hope to see you in Cambria,

I hope to be on the road next week!

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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
