Still going anyone else keen?

I have now arranged sponsorship with a couple of companies and I've decided than rather than just have a jolly I'll do it for Charity - i.e. riders for health ( Home ). Would be good to have some company on the road let me know it's creeping up very quickly.

Good luck on your trip.

If you haven't already, maybe you should also post something on the Middle East Regional Forum, you might get more of a response.

When we left Dubai, my wife and I had the vague idea of driving back to the UK with the kids in a 4x4, but my wife p*ssed off her employer (by disloyally daring to quit for a better job) so, like the typical playground bully he was, he cancelled her visa immediately and frankly, after seven years of BS like that, all we wanted to do was go home.

Middle East Forum etc.

Thanks for the advice I'll have a look for that bit of the forum. You're right the Employment Law out in these parts is rather Dickension and a lot of people I know are also fed up with it. The whole quitting your job thing is kind of impossible without the famous NOC.

The fuel is bloody cheap though...

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.
