Hello all,

the 2003 HU meeting in Viedma was the best mc travelers meeting I have ever been to. Oscar, Nancy, Camilla and the rest of family and friends are just fantastic hosts to hold an event like this.

I wanted to go again last year, but did not make it. So inshalla I will make it this year.



Saludos de Salta Argentina

Great Stuff! On Ruta 40 right now heading South, and will be heading over to P. Valdez for a peek at the whales before heading for the meeting.

Mika - I'll make sure and have some good coffee ready in the Mornings :-)

Cool 5,000 km north now before it's too hot.

Heading to a mid November rally on coast of Brasil 5,000km north of Buenos Aires now. This won't leave much time for portuguese lessons. :\

I'll try to work it in because I've ridden around 40 thousand kilometers so far to meet you South American hubbers. Won't know for a few weeks if I can.

On to Colonia Uruguay ferry now,
Jay

Looking forward to seeing most of you on the road.

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.
