Canada West 2013 HU Travellers Meeting, Nakusp, BC, August 22-25, 2013

Full details and Registration open now!

If you haven't been to Nakusp, you owe it to yourself to go - the scenery is spectacular, the roads are stunning, (you WILL see wild animals from the road) and I can guarantee a great time!

Over the weekend last year we had around 22 presenters putting on 30 shows! Check out the range of topics to come in 2013 here. more are being added all the time!

We are also now accepting applications from presenters for putting on a show, it can be on any bike related travelling topic. To help with planning the event we need your application forms in early please!

We are also looking for volunteers as usual! We had an excellent crew last year doing a range of activities. It takes help from volunteers to put on the meeting and this year we'll need a few more. When you register for the event you'll have an opportunity to volunteer, and we'd greatly appreciate it if you'd help out for just a few hours. It's a GREAT way to meet people too!

New for 2013 - we've reserved the ENTIRE campground! So you can now camp anywhere you like, have your own space, or share with friends!

We look forward to seeing you there!

We are looking forward to it!

After having visited a few HU meetings in Europe (we're Dutch), we now moved to Canada and this meeting is an important part of our integration process I guess ;-).

We have the mandatory MEC membership card, now we take it to the next level and meet more amazing people on this continent!

We're still working on it, and it won't be final till about 5 minutes before the presentation in question... In other words, it will change, nothing is definite!

We will try to post a rough semi-final almost ok maybe version a week or so before!

That will be on the event page.

The number of presentations is low on Thursday, many more on Friday and wow is it full on Saturday! Getting there early is a good thing as we do repeats on the popular and early ones later on so you have a chance to see more.

See you there!

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.
