Community Help

You might want to email the Calgary HU Community group. I know that they are quite active and one of the members might be able to help out. If not give me an email at rickblan<at>telus.net closer to the time. I am in Edmonton, about 3 hours North of Calgary and should have sorted out my accommadations and might be able to help out.

On a slightly different note we spell Canada with a C not a K. No big deal but something you might want to keep in mind when searching the internet or corespponding with Canadians.

Cheers and have a good trip.

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.
