Maybe to make it simple you could be Jake 1, cos I am Jake (without a number ) and if your Jake 2 then who on earth will be Jake 1. Now that would be confusing. !
G'day sir. Jake.

I will be there on the Friday earlyish in the day, Mike is having to work, so he will bring me down and abandon me. I am going to try some pole repairs to my old tent, if it works then it could be used as a shelter, will let you know how I get on with the repairs.

Hi Hubbers,

Can't believe that we've only got a week until the mini meet! Wow... time has flown by this year! Just wanted to say that we are looking forward to catching up with fellow hubbers and to meeting new ones! Remember to book in with Pillars stating HUBB MEET.

In the mean time... have a great weekend!

Beej n Chris

The best laid plans go awry, my holidays have been in for over a year now to get this date free.
Mike on the other hand who hardly ever works weekends has to work this one, he is NOT happy.
I will be there on the Friday will stay overnight & join in the camp fire fun, but will have to go home on Saturday.
Looking forward to a catch up & marshmallows if I remember to pack them.

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.
