Sounds like a pretty awesome place - if it is navigable I would be interested in thinking about riding up there from Vladivostok next year.

I got a reply from these guys and they said that you can drive from Vlad in the summer - however they didn't give any directions!

drive onto the ferry, then drive off at Petropavlovsk.

if they can show you a road to Kamchatka, I would eat my hat.

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.
