Smile HU Curried Lamb meat (Meet)

HU CURRIED LAMB MEET.
TAKODA CAMPING KIRKBY STEPHEN, CUMBRIA. CA17 4AP.
FRI 25th-27th APRIL 2014
tel 017683 72587 or
Maria on 07794 754099 - Paul on 07711 882112

This is our very first HU meet and we as fellow travelers would like you all to come and see what this outstanding area has to offer.
Takoda Camping is located along the bank of the river Eden, just five minutes walk from the market town of Kirkby Stephen which offers shopping, fuel, restaurants, cafe's and a good selection of pubs.
We are very lucky to be geographically situated between the Lakes district, Yorkshire dales and the north Pennines which offer some of the best scenery and riding roads that the UK has to offer.

The "Curried Lamb meet" is going to be a laid back affair starting on Friday where everybody is welcome, overland 4x4, motorcycles and bicycles. We hope you will meet friends new and old around our bonfire, stay on the site or sample the pubs and food in Kirkby Stephen.
Saturday we will organize various ride outs and will be looking for a few volunteers with local knowledge to lead these, on and off road.
Following what will hopefully be a great experience riding the twisty Cumbrian roads and passes we have a well known traveler "Bernard Smith" who will host a wonderful presentation about "A blind woman, two wheels and 25,000 miles"

During the evening the "Curried Lamb" will come into it's own as we will be serving a selection of delicious curry to help the night along and will have another bonfire to relax and take it all in.

Sunday most people are packing up ready for work on the Monday but you are welcome to stay as long as you like.

The cost of the weekend is,
Camping £8 per person per night, includes free showers.
Breakfast sandwiches and hot drinks are available every morning from our camp reception/shop.
Free WiFi is available

Takoda is a small family run site with limited spaces and I would be grateful if you could express you intention of interest on this thread.

We look forward to meeting you,
Paul & Maria

Clashing dates

Hi Paul I can't make this as the dates clash with pre planned arrangements. Hope it all goes well and that you have another in the year.

Hi Paul and Maria,

Can you add another two to your list please with 1 tent and a couple of bikes.
Think the 4 season sleeping bag might need to be dragged out.

Thanks
Deb and Sean

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.
