5.jpgIs anyone going to Horizons Unlimited North Carolina event taking place from Thursday, Aug 8 to Sunday, Aug 11, 2013?

Beemerphile was going, but I have not heard from him for a while now.

I know now I won't be riding a bike. I'll find out next week if I have to go under the knife for a joint replacement.

If I don't go under the knife, I will be going to North Carolina by 4 wheels because of the knowledge and learning experience this has to offer.

I want to go... maybe I can swing it. I'm only about 6 or 7 hours ride away too.... I haven't gotten my fusebox yet, but can always use my portable MAH battery for my electronics assuming I can find a place to recharge it at night.

It would be great to meet some of you guys!

They've been working me 15 to 20 hours of overtime a week, so I don't know if I can sneak away, but I'll see what I can do. I need some R&R

I have registered both with Horizons Unlimited and for a camping spot. Hopefully get off work in time to ride up Thursday afternoon.

Beemerphile registered so I expect he will be there.

That is like music to my ears. I have a terrible case of the "got to ride syndrome". Won't be able to ride my bike (according to doctors ???), but unless I am under the knife I will be there.

I'm registered for the event and have reserved a tent spot. Will be leaving West Virginia on Wednesday the 7th. Should be about an 8 or 9 hour ride from here.

Just talked to Beemerphile. He is doing the Alaska trip presentation on Thursday evening. Sure would be nice if we could all be there for his presentation.

Ok, got my leave approved from work, did the online registration, paid the registration fee, and got the confirmation email.
I'm camping so all I need to do, now is call Iron Horse and make my camping reservations. I don't think they fill up on camp sites, so I should be good.

Sorry, I had to bail on the trip because of knee surgery. Those who go, say "Hi" to my good friend Mike Kilpatrick who is running the event. He and I went the first time in 2004. He had to try to keep up with my KLR using only a BMW. Poor Mike. best - Lee

Almost ready.

Before.jpg

Ready! Will mount up around 4:30 am. Meteorologists are predicting rain for a couple of days. I hope they're wrong (again). Sorry I won't get to meet you this time around Lee, but hope the surgery goes well. Will be looking forward to meeting up with fellow NC riders from this forum.

Going to miss meeting you. Sorry you can't make it. Thought you were through your surgery. Who will give the presentation for you?
I am through the arm surgeries. Now we are on to knees. The presentation will not happen. Hopefully Mike has found someone else to present a trip. It was a rather late development and I didn't give him much time to find an alternate. Please apologize to him for me!

I hate to hear that, was looking forward to meeting you AND your bike. With all those mods you have, I think every NCX rider would be drawn to it like a magnet! Lol.
I hope the knee surgery goes well and you are back riding again ASAP! Hopefully you'll be there next year and we can all meet up then.

I will be there, but still have not got my motorcycle parts. If the parts do not come by tomorrow noon, I will have to go in the truck, but I will there. If the parts do come I will be a day late, other wise on time if in the truck.8.jpg

It's been a while since I camped, especially on the bike. Guess I'll find out what I forgot tomorrow. Lots of last minute additions to the bike, this should be a good trial trip. See you guys tomorrow at Iron horse.
