In Cambria now

Well I got here early cause I did not want to miss out on anything and I just could not wait to get out of Minnesota at this time of year. Staying at the Blue Bird but have not seen anyone yet. Room 26 stop and say hi.

Great to see you Grant, doing so well! A very nice venue as always, and a wonderful turnout. Not only attendees, but great presenters. And great resturants in Cambria,(for those of us moteling it! sorry).
Always enjoyed the CO events, but this was a big group. Fun.

Cambrian fun!

Just wanted to say thanks to all, had a great time last weekend! Always meet interesting folks at these meetings, and I thought the line-up of presentations was the best ever. In fact there were too many great choices, as many as I saw I know I missed some other great ones! A big thanks to John and Bill and Mike who made volunteering easy and fun!

A few Instagram pics for fun...

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.
