Volunteer Network in Oz and NZ - WWOOF or the 'somethingX' network - forgotten name

Hey Everyone,

I was given the name of an alternate to WWOOF volunteer network (farm and rural work) some time ago on the HUBB, but naturally I cannot remember the name (well, I did the other night, but am drawing a blank again!) .

Please help!

Thanks heaps.

Volunteer farm work

Nope, 'fraid not.

I think there's an X in it.
Like... worX or playX or netx or somethingX (yes, I have googled numerous options)


Aaaarg!

Yay Nigel YAAAAY!

Thank you. Of course your name has an X in it too - no wonder it was buzzing around my head!
Thank you.

I've been a host in France from the beginning & generally it's a great way of travelling .. I used to do the same years ago in NZ & Oz before the net existed; works well for both parties if you have the right people!

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.
