Well, after 18mths of planning, daydreaming, last-minute prepping/fretting & 26 days of driving good roads, bad roads, no roads, river crossings, bottomless swamps, corrugated tracks & potholes the size of Malta, WE DID IT!!!!
We were a 5-team convoy, but got separated yesterday, so we tootled into town with Team (W)reckless & The Desert Scousers (their back axle cracked again so they limped the last 200 miles).
An absolutely amazing adventure. The best thing I’ve ever done.
Thanks to all our supporters,sponsors & followers.
Thanks to Dannyboy for taking care of the blogs.
Thanks to the fine chaps & chappesses at the Adventurists for orchestrating the madness.
Thanks & to Lina for putting up with my smelly feet & pre-caffeine moodswings.
Last-but-not-least, thanks to the mighty Silver Streak, a £995, 998cc Nissan Micra that never missed a beat on the whole trip (not even a puncture). Was sorry to hand over the keys. Hope you enjoy your new life in UB buddy.
Time for a cold beer & a shower (first in 12 days).
