New Presenter!

We've registered another presenter for HU Maritimes!

Madeline Velazquez

My first major ride was from Boston to the Panama Canal round trip. Everyone kept telling me not to go because of the dangers to a female solo rider. I did not listen and completed my 15,000 mile round trip motorcycle ride in 60 days. This ride created a deeper thirst for extreme riding.
Register soon for the best deal! Look forward to seeing everyone there!

Sounds like a good time.

I just booked my vacation for those dates, so I'll be there. Friends of mine from the Rock will be coming up as well. Can't wait.

Presenters, presenters, presenters....

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!

Check out the link in my sig line!

Looks like a great event building up. I'll be passing through NS in the second week of August headed over to NFL not sure I can make it up for the July time line this round. Hopefully you will also get a good turn out from other travelers stopping in en route. Thanks for hosting this event.

Will the event be solely a motorcycle driven event or will there be vendors and presenters from all aspects of Expedition type of travel?

Currently - we only have Motorcycle Travelers registered as presenters. I would LOVE to have some other expedition travelers registered as presenters - interested? Expedition Portal has become another big time suck with me - and I would love to see or hear presentations from folks crossing the world in ANY way.

As far as Vendors go - we may be a bit of a bust on Vendors this year, but are working at providing a full experience. Stay tuned.

Do folks know that ferry service from Portland, Maine to Yarmouth, NS is starting up again soon? That makes it a lot closer to the whole Northeast of the US. It might be tough getting away on Fourth Of July Weekend. I'd really like to make it, though.

That's the way I plan on riding over for it. Thought id give it a try as a different way to get out east.

I live about 10 km from where the ferry docks. Last I heard they are saying its going to run this year. It should make a huge difference in the amount of motorcycles passing though. I did see a few motorcycles passing through last summer but no where near as many as when the ferry is running.

Fingers crossed that it goes well.

They've been talking up the ferry on the tv as if it's a sure thing, Sounds like it's a definite go
