Re: Drive to Gambia

my son will make sure everyone has a straight face if and when we are pulled over... he may request constant games of backgammon and football. but he will be better behaved than us.

that's for sure.

when are you thinking?

No need to worry about that; they'll be taken for illegal car importers,
and unlicensed resellers, not refugees


On the other hand, once they're released, they can bring back a suitcase for
me, that I left with a friend out there. Just mementos, you understand

Re: Drive to Gambia

I was in an autorickshaw rally through South India a couple years back. I think they organised some crazy rally through Eurasia more recently. Will check what cars they used.

...don't flatter yourself. I think that I could barely get one goat for you. Maybe a chicken or a pidgeon yeah, but not a camel.

Re: Drive to Gambia

Awesome idea LiB. Got room for another?

But first of all, will the car have air conditioning?

I wanted to confirm, but yes I was right, next month they are doing a trans-Sahara rally from Tunisia to Benin. We could just join them next year!

I know someone who did that a few years back and had stories of being chased by guys with rocket launchers. Now that is living on the edge, eh?
