New Forum - Money Saving Ideas

Hi Grant - don't know if another forum would just create more clutter for your housekeeping, but I thought that most of us here in the HUBB have saved or are saving money. Perhaps if we had an area for good money saving ideas, we could all get to our goals a bit quicker.

Just a thought

Why not also expand it into a 'Work needed to do' and 'Services offered' type thing.

Somebody who needs their kitchen rebuilt could perhaps find a carpenter to do it - thus money goes from one traveller to another etc. Obviously no endorsement from HU as to the suitability of anyone replying to anything.

But a bit like ebay, people could build up a good reputation from feedback left.

So I could post offering Mac support for example, a carpenter could post offering his services, somebody wanting a load of scrub cleared of their land in Cornwall could post some pictures and ask for quotes etc etc

Just a thought anyway as it's hard to find somebody with a good reputation and a good work ethic etc

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.
