Argentina 2004: Second Annual HU Travellers Meeting

Why Come to a Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Travellers Meeting?

You can meet people who don't think you're crazy for wanting to ride your bike to South America or Africa or across Asia, or even around the world! Admit it, all your 'normal' friends and most of your family fears for your sanity! So, this is your opportunity to meet the people who will encourage you in that craziness, share their experiences and advice on how to do it, and maybe you'll meet them again in Mongolia or Timbuktu!

Viedma, Argentina, December 3-5, 2004

The 2004 poster is here.

2005 poster and detailed not yet available, check here for more as it becomes available. Location and date approximately the same.

"...all was very good in the meeting, we had a great time, and lots of fun too. The weather didn't help us, so we only had five travellers bikes and five locals. Thanks very much to: Peter Slarke, Jessica Hartridge, Albert Hoermann, David Taylor, Bob Morley, Angie Cordano, Gino Lofredo, Amèrico Bustamante, Julio Grova, Hugo (transalp), and special thanks to the Commissioner of Viedma, Jorge Ferreira and his wife, he came to the meeting and invited us for a great lunch in the casino in La Boca beach.

So much thanks too to Marcela Ely and all the girls that were working on all the details of the meeting. For the boss police of La Boca, Adalberto Cravota, that made a big job with the care for our bikes and the campsite at all times. The photos are coming in he next days, because I haven't a digital machine, and I need to get the photos from my friends.

See you next year! Oscar"
