Adventure Overland Show, Northants 6-7 Oct 2012

NOTE: The following event is not solely a motorcycle event, but it does include bikes.



ADVENTURE OVERLAND … the national 4x4, bike & trekking travel show

Run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, ADVENTURE OVERLAND aims to span the entire overland and adventure travel scene whether it be organised tours, safaris or independent travel. Held at Whilton Mill Karting Centre, nr. Daventry, Northamptonshire NN11 2NH, England, the venue is located approx. 60 miles north of London.

Encompassing all forms of travel without bias, it will include everything from 4x4's to all-wheel-drive expedition trucks, trailbikes/enduro/dirt bikes to long-distance tourers, mountain bikes to tandems, adventure sports in the UK to treks, tours, expeditions and explorations in far-flung foreign lands.

Attractions include free Seminar Sessions featuring overland travel on bikes and in 4x4s (speakers include Chris Scott, Austin Vince and Lois Pryce) plus a floodlit 2-hr Enduro Kart Race Saturday event that's open to all - to enter a team see event website.

The show also incorporates an element that's linked to all these forms of travel - bushcraft - a specialised field encompassing survival skills, wilderness training, bushlore, tracking, navigation and first aid training, knowledge and application.

In a nutshell, it's a new type of all-embracing event that has never been held before.

There will also be free entry to all overland vehicles/campervans/trucks over 3.5 tonnes as display vehicles, so please inform any owners you may know.

Here’s hoping you will be able to join us in October! Contact: 024 767 31971 - 07958 216266 - 4x4trading@talk21.com ~ www.adventureoverlandshow.com

It’s all systems go for ADVENTURE OVERLAND this coming weekend – www.adventureoverland.com

Trade stands are completely full up (have been for nearly a month), loads of display vehicles, there’s a full programme of seminars/talks/lectures with some top people giving up their time, the bushcraft demo area has been set up, there’s even a floodlit 2-hr enduro kart race scheduled for the Saturday night – looking good!

Just remember to offer up a prayer to the rain gods to ‘take a weekend off’ for a change!

Camping ‘pay on the day’ still available although filling fast, plus of course day admission 10:00 – 17:00 Sat, 10:00 – 16:00 Sun. £10 adults, children under 16 yrs free.

Me, I’m off to site to start setting up, so see you all this coming weekend … it’s going to be a good ’un

Cheers for the good wishes M&S!

In case you were wondering, ADVENTURE OVERLAND went wonderfully well with two days of constant sun, something which always helps. Stars of the show were Austin Vince, Chris Scott, Lois Pryce, in fact all the speakers in the "Been There, Done It" Seminar Sessions were brilliant.

Next event is the HUBB get together Springtime next year, can't wait to be an everyday punter for a change!

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.
