Jon,

Good to hear you're on your way south!

Try and get to the Copper Canyon Meeting - there'll be lots of folks there, possibly some heading south also, plus of course there will be a number of Mexicans there to connect with.

See you there!

I am also headed south. So far have linked up with Xavier from NYC- see his posting- NYC- ARGNTN -NYC: Late Oct (give/take).

I am flying to Ecuador Nov 2, will race the Ecuador National Rally Nov 8-15 then on to points further south. Plan to be in Ushuaia Jan 1, no other set dates.

The more the merrier, I always say.

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.
