I'll be back in North Africa spring and autumn.

Big Western Sahara trip in March, over 2000km on pistes. Rekkam Plateau in October then WS again. In between a load in the main bits of Morocco.

Might pop into Mauritania depending on how things turn out
Mark, you seem to have fallen in love with Morocco, indeed a beautiful country. Have you explored anywhere else in Africa? If the Morocco/desert landscape is your 'thing" then you would love Namibia for sure. Why not venture further south on your travels?.. I don't mean W/S or M'tania.

Indeed I have, I'd been visiting for 12 years before the landcruiser came along.. In fact it was that which pushed me into Overlanding.

It's an amazing country that needs a lot of time to properly explore, 2 weeks, 2 months etc and you've barely scratched the surface of what it has to offer.

I also love heat and deserts so Namibia doe have an interest for me. Top of my list is the Algerian Sahara and recent development are putting a whole load of new Overlanding options on the table.

2021 and I may be doing a big trip via Algeria. First confirmed tourist doing what I'm thinking of, did get shot at because he drove a 60 though.

Yep, Starting in Halifax, Nova Scotia and heading down to Ushuaia. Any tips? I'll drop you a PM so as not to take over this thread.
Every good overland trip starts off in Halifax.. :)

How the new year has started off I'll be lucky to make a trip to kwik save..

I think il give Iran a miss this year.. (Thanks to Trump and his Twitchy finger).. Hope Grant and Sarah are OK, I think they were heading that way This week..
We are good thanks mate! Currently 4 hours drive from the Iranian border working out/waiting to see what will happen. We may opt for a quick crossing into Pakistan and further explore Iran another time.

if things kick off well turn around and head north back to Georgia. It’s quite cheap there to lay low.

Really ?
Russia maybe, but I can't see China getting involved.
Do you have a creditable link ?

I’m trying to get a trip in but with the new born it’s hard work, plus you need to plan your campsites

Overland driving ?
Unfortunately not, I have family all over the Cape so it will be lots of driving but mostly on the black stuff with some gravel roads.

I'm still looking at what hire car options there are that will not shake us to bits for the gravel roads with good height for going into some of the game reserves.
