Why post then ?

Do you know me ?

Sound like you know SH*T all about anything to be honest. Based on your only other "useful" post on the HUBB.

Will post it in the next few days Ted.

In the meantime, just to give you a taster of what the scenery is like around our way and what you can expect to ride when you get here, take a look at my web album. It isn't as exotic as South America, Morocco or Africa - it's southern Spain and most of these roads and tracks are 20 minutes away, Sierra Nevada is a couple of hours away and Malaga 30 minutes. This is what we spend every weekend doing.

I know you're not going to do anything but go to HU meetings and post that you're going and never go anywhere. It's old already.

Hmmm

Tut tut that's not very friendly Max.

Had a bad day? Decided to use an alternate sign-on to stir up some trouble?

Why not tell us about YOUR trip prep experience? That'd be more useful.

Ted,

I have a similar problem with fustration.

I am planning on going south to Senegal in a couple of months time, been building up to it since Feb this year and now just got to recieve my Carnet, and add some new panniers on the bike and i will be as ready as i can be.

I enjoyed the buildup to it, and getting me and the bike ready but in a weeks time I will by ready to go but cant for 2 months due to visas and work. I have to grit my teeth and keep the bike going East to work when i rarther be going South....

Regards, Mike

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.
