Smile Scottish Campfire Mini Meet 2014

Hi HUBBERS,

We're both really looking forward to chilling out at Pillars around the campfire tomorrow... our group of hubbers looks like... Beej n Chris, Jake (Seisbobs), Liz (Milimut1), Gary (Zimcruza), Andy & Maya (Freewheel) and Deb & Sean (Strompet). If anyone else is going to pop along then please let us know.

We have a mixed weather forecast (BBC Weather - Falkland), as can be expected for October in Scotland, with rain on Friday evening from 8 ish, a great sunny day on Saturday and sadly some more rain on Sunday! But hey... we'll have a campfire so we'll be nice and toastie!

We've packed some kindling and an ikea bag of wood to get the campfire started on Friday. If you have space then please bring a few logs for the fire or if not then a few pounds to buy some from the campsite. We will forage for wood but we will need some dry kindling & firewood to get the fire started on both nights!

Remember that the daylight is going around 6-6:30pm at the moment incase you want to plan your arrival to get set up in daylight. Let us know what time to expect you and we'll try to have the kettle on!

Beej n Chris

P.S. Got marshmallows! :-)

Hi Hubbers,

A big thank you to everyone who came along this weekend... it was great catching up with everyone around the campfire and I'm glad that everyones spirits weren't damped by the beginning of hurricane Gonzalo!

zimcruza : sorry we missed you on Saturday. We were camped in the bankings field... which the cafe knew so not sure why they didn't tell you! Some folk were out on a run whilst others (ourselves included), were off for a walk and eating cake! Hope to see you at the next mini meet!

GS-Jenny : great to meet you both over a cuppa in the morning... sorry to hear you only just found out about the meet but glad you popped into say hello! Hope to see you both soon.

We both look forward to seeing you all at the next one!!!

Beej n Chris

Thank you for a great night.
Great to catch up with everyone.
Mike does not believe me when I told him I had no dealings with the camp fire.
Tent drying in the bike shed
That's the last of the camping for the year I have even started to put camping stuff away in the box :-(
Thanks Beej n Chris for organising us to all get there even if you couldn't organise Mikes on call

Beej and Chris, thanks very much for organising the mini meet!!! It was nice to have good company and being outdoors. Impressing was also having a campfire in those wild gusty winds!
Thanks, Andy and Maya.

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.
