Bangkok to Kathmandu Shipping

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to update on Barry Crawford at East West Air Services no longer does this service. See our correspondance below. Anyone knows of any other agents? Im still awaiting Thai Cargo reply.

No, really don't. If I did then I could offer you the service too.

Hi Barry,
Thanks for the reply, would u happen to know who still does such a service. Any help or point in the right direction would be most appreciated. I'll be leaving bangkok around mid March and into Katmandu.
Thanks and best wishes

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.
