Hello , My name is Dan Dickie. Just wanted to let everyone know that we operate GSMmotoRent here in Townsend, TN, about an hour from the Iron Horse campground site of the HU USA East Meeting. We rent out KLR 650's and would provide transportation to and from the Knoxville TN airport to our base to anyone that wants to attend the Meeting. Give us a call if we can help at 865-448-6090, or check site out at GSMmotoRent
I am planning to attend. I will be leaving Philadelphia about mid-day on the 19th, with an overnight stop in the Shenandoah National Park, then on to Stecoah. I would like to meet up with sonmeone to ride with. My plan is not in stone. I would be willing to detour to meet up someplace along the way.
I come from Rockland Co., NY. I have business in Trenton, NJ on the morning of the 19th. I am planning on leaving directly from there; stopping for the night in Senandoah Nat'l Park, then onto Stecoah, NC.
If you have a tentative schedule, I would like to join up, if I can.
For the sixth year, Iron Horse Motorcycle lodge has provided the setting for the now-annual Horizons Unlimited Eastern United States Rally. Beautifully located in Stecoah, N.C., the western North Carolina campground hosts international travelers to some of the best riding in the eastern U.S., hospilitality at one of the premier motorcycle campgrounds in the country, and nightly presentations by some of the most veteran motorcycle travelers on the east coast.
On and off rain for the first two days of the rally did very little to discourage the expectations of approximately 50 registered participants, some returning for the fifth and sixth time in the rally's history.
Highlighting the four-day weekend event were Friday evening presentations by south Florida residents Denis and Linda Blaise on five weeks in South Africa, and Ohio-resident David Bowers venture into Canada, the Yukon, Alaska and Prudhoe Bay. Saturday evening was highlighted by a round-table discussion concerning the politics of boarder crossings, followed by Hu Founder Grant Johnson's presentation of he and his wife's round-the-world journey.
While the mission of every HU rally is to provide support and inspiration for a "common community" - that of promoting and showcasing international m/c travel - just as importantly is the encouragement the event provides those considering such a venture. In a sense, outlandish behavior is encouraged and showcased.
Winston-Salem, N.C., resident Hank Marsh may have been the attendee most encouraged, or converted, if you will. Participating in the full three days, Marsh is getting his "affairs in order" anticipating Mexico, Central and South America this fall/winter, 09/010.
Plans for next year's event have not been finalized, only promising the return of the southeast's foremost international m/c touring weekend. Watch HU for rally details and anticipate starting or ending your next global m/c adventure in Stecoah, N.C. with HU.

Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world are in debt to your services." Alaska Riders
