Well our plans are slowly taking form

Theory at the moment is as follows :

Leave early October Dover - Calais or Dunkirk

Pootle down france stopping with a mate who has a house in mid france with 6 acres, llamas and a landrover 101 to play with

South then to spain and across to portugal. Down portugal using small roads, dirt roads etc , then swing back into spain for the ferry to morocco. Through morocco, into western sahara and into mauri. Then return for easter 2014

Good gentle test for me and the truck (more worried about me, the truck should be fine)

Now got to fill a bit of the detail on

Sounds a good trip keep us posted on the planning or are you flying by the seat of your pants and just stopping where and when you find somewhere you like ?

Sounds great, an excursion I'll be contemplating if and when I ever get my Range Rover ambulance-soon-to-be-camper sorted. Pretty soon I'll have to rename it to my Range Rover ambulance-eventually-to-be-camper.

The flesh and mind are willing, the pocket is weak! No

You need to get it sorted by October Tom or have you something else up your sleeve ?

Yeah... pretty much stop where we want - we will have a couple of deadlines if friends get their act together which includes a repaint for 1 truck as its a matt green ambi - not good for morrocco

Bright yellow's good.

Gary: If I can afford to get the RR back up and running, then great. If not I shall run out after the show and but a Delica or similar. Cash at the mo has to go into the show, it's as simple as that. C'est la vie.

Ok gotta change the title to spring 2014

Parents have still not moved into new house and so we still have to deal with old house too

So looking at new distinations now - eastern europe down into the balkans is the plan

As always in life , be flexible and adapt
