Argentina 2017

December 8-10, 2017

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 2017 will be 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!

On Saturday, visit, chat, food!

On Sunday we will go to the countryside for Patagonian lamb on the farm of a friend, the price is 110 pesos each, with salad, wine and ice cream too. (Price NOT confirmed but this will be reasonably close)

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

Costs:

The event is free to attend!

Meals, boat rides etc not included.

Donations to defray Oscars expenses gratefully accepted! See Oscar at the Meeting.

Reservations SVP

We need to let the Oscar know as soon as possible how many we're expecting. NOTE: Food and drink is NOT included, but we're assuming you will want to eat and have a drink, or two...
