Not long now !

This may seem to all of you a pretty dead page... but behind that screen of yours loads of stuff has been happening.........
The new venue has assured us they will cope admirably with all your requests, languages, manners and preferences.Its easy to find, in a rural location, a suitable setting and plenty of space for all of us.
We've got some new presenters and some old ones.
Some of you may remember Sam Manicom, he of 30+ foriegn jobs fame.
David Lomax can show you how to 'off road 'right across America with his Trans Am Trail Show.
Paul Pratt is an old favorite and will be showing Part 2 from his 13 year jaunt round the world trip... finished 25 years ago!
Cliff and Jenny Batley have had lots of coverage on the H.U. site I feel I know them already, its how to get to N.Z. from them.
For those who haven't seen Simon and Georgie McCarthy show on Asia - it will be different.
Tiffany Coates is not new to the traveling circus,Some of you may have seen her at how shall I put... a lesser event... but she's not been to this one before we shall be giving her and all the other presenters a warm welcome.
We again have 2 volunters to do a ride out off road on the Saturday morning
Metal Mule and Overland Solutions will both have stalls on site.
Camping is behind the pub on a flat, grassy field, there are hotels in the area though I gather some are fully booked.
There is a full restaurant on site.
Nearly 200 people have booked from 16 countries so far. If you haven't booked do it now.

Cars,Jeeps,Caravans,Rickshaws,Donkeys,Unimogs, TutTutts,Landrovers,Bicycles,Horses,Carts,Handglid ers,and hot air ballonists are all most welcome but may be frowned upon by some. Remember this is a travellers motorcycle meeting !

Is there any formal timetable for the w/e or is it turn up whenever on Friday and take it from there ? (Which sounds fine to me !)
I don't mean formalised as in presenter A at 19.00 hrs etc, just wondered if we need to know ought before we arrive, wouldn't want to wish I'd brought me sand ladders or something ;-)
Greatly looking forward ! Fritz

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.
