Myanmar is very poor and Tachileik is a sleepy little town with exception at the border crossing where a lot of commerce are going in and out. New crossing should be ready for turcks and buses one kilometer east in 2-3 months. Here is a shoot of the new temple just outside Tachileik and me trying to cross a stream somewhere near Phayao, Thailand.

MOTORCYCLE TRAVELLER'S MINI MEETING

Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Traveller's Meeting in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Who:
Thailand travellers, local riders, friends and guests


Where:
Khaomao Khaofang Restaurant - South of Chiang Mai, near the Night Safari.
Go east from the Night Safari entrance, restaurant is between the Canal Road (Route 121) and Hang Dong Road (Route 108). Phone number - 053-838444

Share your experiences and get advice from others. Talk to local riders about Thailand roads and attractions, or make new friends that you might meet again on the other side of the globe." Robert Sensale, event organizer.

BTW, we will be discussing plans for a 2009 Horizons Unlimited Southeast Asia Traveller's Meeting. Ideas and volunteers will be needed.

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.
