I am posting this for Eric and Gail Hawes.....

"Sending this email to only those who have expressed an interest in our rally. Please note there are many changes. (1) If you are not coming please let us know so we can delete you from this mailing list as we have others. (2) Please give notice to those who might want to attend as we still have some space left.
Off to Bulgaria/Romania/Greece and will update again after our return in May.
Thanks Eric and Gail


WHY: To honor foreign travelers and the concept of traveling outside of North America on the last weekend of June, 25th to the 27th.

WHERE: 47008 La Duke, Westfir, Oregon, 40 miles east of Eugene, on the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. Free camping and no fees except for food and drinks. For those not wanting to camp we suggest the new Oakridge Hostel (phone: 541-782-4000 www.oakridgehostel.com).

SCHEDULE: FRIDAY night: Potluck-BBQ and Burning Moto Man Bonfire.

SATURDAY: Exciting motorcycle road from Oakridge to Cottage Grove and lunch. Return via the little known and almost never traveled Eagles Rest Road or many off-road routes.

BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY: (1) the speakers listed herein. (2) Glen Heggstad, www.Strikingviking.net, who contributed money to the rally fund and sent interesting DVD's which will be shown. (3) RideWest of Seattle, Washington.

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.
