I saw where the 8th Horizons Unlimited Traveller's Mini-Meeting has been announced for January 10 & 11, 2014. Motorbike adventurers, overlanders and bicycle travellers will convene at the Rider's Corner Inn and Restaurant for a Welcome evening January 10 and BBQ/Mini-Meeting January 11.

At the 2013 event there were over 100 adventure seekers in attendance. BBQ reservation is required. The Mini-Meeting is free, but register through Horizons Unlimited meeting registration. BBQ Saturday night before the multi-media presentations and evening activities is 200 THB and requires registration with the Rider's Corner.

The Rider's Corner has become a traveller's touch point for Southeast Asia  and is the official outlet for the freshest printed maps and GPS SD cards, maps made by motorbikers for motorbikers, with net proceeds going to charity. The Rider's Corner is also the official outlet for Golden Triangle motorbike souvenir T-shirts. See the Rider's Corner website for directions, products and location at www.riderscorner.net

For the Official Agenda and Schedule for the 8th Annual Horizons Unlimited Traveller's Meeting look under "Events” at www.horizonsunlimited.com.

This is always a fun event, good for tire kicking, swapping traveling news about border crossing requirements, where to stay and how to avoid being ripped-off by grifters taking advantage of new travellers.  The meeting is also open to bicycle and overlander travellers.
