HU Travellers Meeting, Viedma Argentina, 2009

Horizons Unlimited Travellers Meeting

7th Annual Viedma Argentina Meeting

December 11-13, 2009

Why Come to an HU 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!

On the road now? Heading for Ushuaia? stop in to the Meeting - you'll meet loads of other travellers heading south - or north! Swap information and make new friends!

Location for 2009 was in La Boca, the "Los Trentinos" campground as in previous years.

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!

(We sent tshirts and stickers via Annette to the meeting - we've been trying for years to get them to him, but no one was travelling at the right time - but this year Annette volunteered and made it happen! Grant)
