cool guys keep it coming.

Mervic: it will be in the state of Rio 'cause this is where I live and it will be easier for me if it is not too far from my home.

If we are not too many (12 to 15) I may rent a full house with also caba~nas included (and pool and churrasqueiria...it's a fantastic place!) .

It is very cheap (only slightly more than camping) in low season cause they don't provide anything (no bedding, towels, Breakfast etc) but the main mansion has a big kitchen and massive living room which would be ideal for presentations or group discussion.

If not I have a camp ground in mind too.

Ok so far we have:

Paulo Assis
E Gadelha
BKM_br
Mario Agius
Mervicfwdc (maybe)
Maja (Maybe)
Myself and the husband
Raoul (maybe)

Anyone else? Are u guys coming with friends?

Potentially only 6 people sure and 3 maybes. Not enough for the "mansion" which rents to 10 people minimum! Might be a very small meeting but in any case it would be nice to get out on the bikes.

We may have to fall back to the campsite that Bruno called, few weeks ago. No need to reserve with small numbers like these!

The alternative to such small numbers is to barge into the Penedo's "Encontro International de Motociclistas" on 3rd, 4th and 5th of August (In Penedo!)

Any thoughts on that guys?

Penedo, RJ, near Campos dos Goytacazes or Penedo, MG, near Formiga and Arcos?
I'm usually not a big fan of big motorcycle meetings in Brazil, the people who usually goes to this kind of meeting are generally more interested in drinking bear, behave badly and to do this kind of stupidity.

Hi Bruno!
It's Penedo in RJ state (near Visconde de Maua montains). Nice area.

What you guys thinks?

Hi Bruno,

I saw the video! Silly indeed. That's not the spirit of the HU that's sure.
We don't care what bike people ride or what travels they have done. It's about keeping the dream of travelling by motorcycle, be it round the world on in your backyard. After all, every big journey starts with a little step!

Let's keep our meeting as scheduled for September.

AS we are not too many, I suggest to meet at this campsite:

=== Camping do jo ===

They have some rooms to rent if you don't want or cannot camp.
I will contact Jo (the owner) to get instructions how to find the place).

See you there!

Oi!
(H)i, Maria!
Penedo seems to be a nice place but I've never been there before . Prior to recommend it, I will check it, specially for camping (it seems to have only one or two there).
Good reason for a short kick - it is only 255 km from Sao Paulo....
In the name of the HU's fraternity, I am comanded and must to do this check with my own eyes. What a sacrifice!!!!!!

Hugs!
