Hello from Yorkshire/Bedford

Hi there everyone!
I've been looking through several topics for a while now so i thought it would be about time to register and say hello
I grew up on a farm in Bedford but I'm now starting work up in Yorkshire in the Live Events industry (very fun place to be).
I've always loved travel and one day want to do at least an overland to cape town but a friend of mine and i are starting with a trip to Morocco in his Defender 90 for 3 weeks leaving in about a weeks time.
I've got loads of questions so I'm sure you'll see me around and i look forward to learning from you all!

Done, but not in a direct answer fashion.

Those are two fine counties of England by the way, but you moved to the better one; good move

Anyway, it sounds like you are travelling soon, so, in due course, you can write up a good report/thread later about "doing things on the hoof with little preparation" to and from Africa.

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.
