Hey Steve,
I'm in the Tetons and heading to Yellowstone in a couple of days.
What are you riding?
I'm on an airhead, so its slow and steady for me.
See you there if not before.
Matt

First Nakusp visit

I'm looking forward to visiting Nakusp, seeing the area and meeting the group. I'm willing to volunteer but at 70 try to keep me off my hips as I've done a good job of wearing them out and I'm still working on it!

Just seen this thread and am really envious of everyone going to Nakusp. I was there in 2010 and had a wonderful time. Great people, great place.

Enjoy the weekend

Just for the record we had ONE 10 minute shower today, (it was a doozy though!) And the weather forecast is pretty good - chance of showers Thursday/Friday, and the rest good!

Don't know if there is a laundromat in town, I'm sure Zigy will let us know if he found one, and we'll let you know if he didn't!

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.
