I fly out today - Thanks everybody !

Well its finally happened. It's the day that I fly out to start my South America adventure, and by god, its been a long time coming.

Thank you SOOOOO much to all on here who have helped, advised, motivated and encouraged me to "live the dream"

I know its very dramatic but it feels like the first day of a new life !

Thanks again and take care !

Let me be the first to say: congratulations! Kick it in the butt, Teddy. You're gonna meet some amazing people and see some incredible places. And if times get tough, ask yourself this: if I could click my heels 3 times and be back at my house, would I? I still smile when I think about that. My answser is still no! See you out there one of these days. Hook.

Good luck

All the very best for your trip, I look forward to reading about it, when you are 'filling up' with sensible priced fuel please think of us paying over £1 per litre!

Have a good one.

Take care and ride safe.

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.
