HU Mini Meet for woman travellers. 19-21 August, UK

Hi,
On 19-20 and 21 of August (2011) we would like to organize a 'Ladies Travellers Only' Mini Meet in South West Scotland, near Dumfries.
The idea is to create a possibility to meet woman who would like to start travelling or have been already on a trip. You are also very welcome if you are not riding your own bike, but are a pillion, as long as you are interested in sharing adventures and plans.
The key question of course is not where we put our hairdryer, it's about fulfilling your travel dreams.
If you have never been on a bike trip you can learn from others. If you have already enjoyed trips near and far, you can share your experiences and knowledge. It's about inspiration and also fun!
We can offer great camping (in Maya's BIG garden; beautiful surroundings, no neighbours) and we can cook inside the house. If it's dry we can have a bonfire.
Let us know if you are interested and if you have any ideas please reply. We can only create together a good Mini Meet.
'Us' are Debz and Maya (both sidecar fans).

Hi Maya, we met on a joint Curvy Riders meet If I am not on shift I would certainly be wanting to attend for your mini-meet. I will check my shifts tomorrow and confirm one way or the other

Hi Fern,
Take some time of and come to Scotland, we have it all; rain, wind, midges...but it's absolutly breathtaking! I am born in the land of windmills, coffeeshops and cloqs, but when I am homesick while travelling I want to be in Scotland.
Hope to see you!
Maya.

Hola Maya
¿Cómo están?

We have few questions:
Is this a Ladies “ONLY” meeting?
Will be other guys allowed to be there? Or will be only Andy strutting around the Ladies?

To make the story short we were thinking to travel to UK and visit some friends, on the way maybe to attend to the big HU Ripley meeting, then we considered the short time left to the event and the short money we have, we decide to re-plan it maybe for next year.
Now you pops up with this event and considering that will be in August, that we want to see you both, and the HU Autumn Mendip meeting in early September, we are again thinking about and considering all what is involve (our work, our sons, time to see the many friends we have in UK, all the places we want to know, money and all that s...)
Bike isn’t a problem we have some offers if we can solve the insurance, we hope few places to stay too, will see...
Keep in touch.
Muchos Saludos
Javier & Sandra

Hi ,I'm from Ireland and on the forum for a while, been to the the Travellers meeting in Enniskillen last month, it was just great.

a Ladies only mini meeting is a great idea.
I'm planning a big trip to Morocco next year in April,and I would not mind a little trip to Scotland to meet like-minded ladies.

Cheers

SwissMiss

Hi Debz and Maya
what a great idea. Unfortunately I will be away in Portugal that week, otherwise I would have definitely come up for it.
I hope you have a great time and hopefully we will be able to follow it up with another one at some point.

Best wishes

Hi Tiffany,

Thanks for your support all the way from China (I just have been reading your post on the Hubb) and I hope you won't be stuck there for to long.

Years ago I went with my Andy to my first HU meeting in Ripley and the first presentation I went to was yours; you where riding in a chador, fell off your bike sometimes more then ten times a day. Bike maintanance was still a secret to you, but you got everywhere!

So eat a lot of 'good luck cookies' there in China and come back safely, Maya.

I would love to come. It just so happens I already have that friday off work & was looking for an excuse to go somewhere - now I have one!
As yet, I have no plans for a big biking trip but always open to ideas and suggestions.

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.
