Adelaide Dinner

I'm staying in Adelaide for a week or so with Brian and Val...
Linda gets back from Thailand next week and SherriJo is also in the area.

Would anyone else like to join us for dinner?
We have a tentative date of Tuesday 25th but I'm still waiting to hear from Linda.

I'm heading north after next week - up through the Flinders Ranges and then on to Alice Springs so if anyone can't make dinner but still wants to meet up, drop us a line.

If you (or anyone else in the region) make it to Darwin, I have a couple of guys heading over from Dili on their world tours, they're due before the end of the month, I'd say a BBQ and Beers are in order ?

Well this has come together nicely.

Bjoern and Sigrid have kindly offered to host a BBQ at their place in Flinders Park.
I’ll organise the salads and Bjoern is organising the meat so if we all pitch in $10 that should cover it.
BYO drinks.

Looking forward to catching up and meeting new people – feel free to invite friends.

Please email me for the address.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80G/S.

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
