    Fellow Inmates,

    I'd like to take the opportunity to invite you to the Inaugural Horizons Unlimited Maritimes event, July 3-6, 2014!

    This event is being organized and hosted by Inmates Stained, Slowphil and BigSexy. We are currently seeking Presenters, Speakers and Volunteers to help make this event a success.

    It will be held on the banks of the Annapolis River, just minutes from the historic town of Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia. Known for excellent riding (on road and off), Seafood, Scenery and hospitable locals, you really shouldn't miss this event.

    Information and registration is located here: LINK

    Should you have any questions you can message through the HU site or directly here. We look forward to seeing you this coming July!

    Stained.

    Sounds good to me. Little out of the way but good just the same. I have it marked on my calendar. The next weekend is the Atlantic Nationals in Moncton if anyone is interested. Said to be one of the biggest car shows in the country. Put me on your contact list if your looking for assistance. I intend to go out west to work but plan to be back for that time period.

    Count me in!

    Nice to have an event like this happening so close to home (Near Yarmouth). I really hope things like this will catch on in the maritimes. Would be especially good if the dual sport riding catches on.

    Ok it appears I may have missed it catching on. I first got into the dual sport when I lived out west. Seeing a dual sport there was quite common. Here not so much.

    I also have to admit since moving home I spent most of the last 4 years in Africa and the middle east I did not get in a lot of riding in Nova Scotia. I'm pushing 50 and have never been to Cape Breton. Been all over the world and have not seen the other end of my own province! Also never been to this Peggy's cove the locals speak of.

    It seems mostly what I see here are Harley type bikes. There are a couple of KLR's down this way and a F800GS. Other than that not too much in the way of a dual sport.

    We've confirmed that David Allen, on half of the duo to complete the TCAT in its entirety last season will be speaking at the Horizons Unlimited Maritimes Events. David has also completed a RTW trip and is an animated speaker.

    I've seen his talk about his TCAT trip and this is one y'all don't want to miss.

    Still actively seeking Presenters! Have you undertaken a huge adventure? Got lots of pictures to share? Signup as a presenter and share your trip!

    Maybe you haven't undertaken an epic adventure, but you know something that you'd like to share? Can you fix an Airhead with a piece of chewing gum and a twist tie? Are you a campsite gourmet? There are lots that would love to hear what you have to say!
