Argentina 2007: Fifth 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 7-9, 2007

Thank you Susan and Grant to give us the chance to make this. To all the travellers thank you very much for coming, we wont forget you, you can come back whenever you want, all the best and live your dreams. Familia Knecht"

The plan

The general plan is simple.

Show up Friday, have a drink, tell some lies, have another drink, eat, talk to people, sleep!

A huge asado for Saturday is planned, and lots more to do and travellers to meet. Expect a great time - everyone raved about last years Viedma Meeting, so go and have a great time!

Monday, time to head south for Christmas and New Years at Ushuaia, or east or west or wherever!
