Thanks Reggie - just seen it come through.

The first one was at 7.15 this morning, but getting in on the first day still deserves endless good karma

Yeah! I've never been first before! If I get a photo in the HU calendar, I'm buying a lottery ticket!

I missed this year through work, so I'm really looking forward to going. The info so far looks good . . .

Thumbs up Off to a Great Start

I just wanted to post a quick 'thank you' to everyone who showed their enthusiasm and encouragement for the new event yesterday.

The flood of response from people pre-registering and volunteering throughout the day was fantastic to see and we're humbled by the generosity of donations being made to Prostate Cancer UK - so huge thanks to you all.

Kudos to Les Madge from Traveldri-Plus for being the first trade stand to confirm a booking for the Adventure Travel Zone, and to Kev Palmer and Ruth Bennett from Woodland Ways who're going to be in the HUBB Zone.

Thanks also for the positive feedback about the look of the event pages, the new event format, and the invaluable help with spreading the word via Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere. All really very much appreciated.

And another pre-registration has just come in from a guy in the Netherlands...

Q: So who is the event actually aimed at?
A: HUBB UK is an event for overland adventure travellers, regardless of their vehicle choice. It's for motorcyclists, cyclists and drivers of any kind of expedition vehicle whether 4x4 or otherwise.


The Logo/Favicon suggests it is for motorcyclists- will this change also?

I believe it will change the meeting- but for worse or better, I do not know....so I'm booked in!

The HU logo (the globe with Grant and Susan riding round it) isn't changing. The HUBB UK logo is specific to the new event in the way it represents motorcycles, bicycles and expedition vehicles.

A very positive change is certainly the intention.

Glad to hear you're planning on coming. When you say "booked in"... have you pre-registered? I don't think we received anything.

I plan to attend my first event and after reading negative comments about Lumb Farm I am glad it has been moved - is the camping a free for all at Donnington or is it divided up into motorcycles, cyclists, 4 wheelers etc?

Shall be pre-registering once my I have clarified how many others are coming with me.

Do you need to be a paid HU member? And what are the chest sizes for the synthetic tshirts?

It'll basically be a free-for-all as we're really keen for everyone to mix together as fellow travellers. That being said, the hardstanding pitches will naturally get used by 4-wheeled vehicles. We'll have a separate area for dog-owners and we'll designate an area as the "quieter" zone.

No, not at all. However, if you're interested in becoming an HU member there's a membership option on the pre-registration form.

All the t-shirts are "standard UK mens' sizes", which I understand are approximately as follows:

S = 36"-38"
M = 38"-40"
L = 40"-42"
XL = 42"-44"
XXL = 44"-46"
XXXL = 46"-48"

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.
