Look No Further

The sponsor of this thread is reasonably close I would think.

Whole heartedly recommend Matt, if he isn't too busy.

I would highly recommend Julian Voelcker, he's not exactly on your doorstep, but he is excellent, and I don't believe anyone else in the UK knows LandCruisers better.

Top man for Toyota prep...

Hi there,

I know Peterborough's no exactly near, but Footloose 4x4 are tops for Toyota expedition prep. Paul Marsh really knows his stuff and the quality of the work is top notch. Most of his vehicles are prepared for African travel with 80 series his speciality.

He's at paul at footloose4x4 dot com or 01733 362999

Hope this works for you.

Happy trails,

Jojo

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.
