Well, for the few of us still left on here you know Jess and I have been looking at a number of possible plans for a 2018 trip. Algeria was number one but we were waiting to hear back from Chris Scott who did a bike trip in the south in January. While quite safe, there are far too many rules and limited areas open for off-road travel. So that is now on the back burner.

I was asked in January as well to consider taking part in a Cape Town to London drive being organized by the editor of a Land Rover magazine and the owner of a big 4x4 retailer in South Africa. I would either just be riding along with someone else or would have to ship Tembo down to Cape Town and drive it back. It was tempting but they wanted to do the complete drive in six weeks (eastern route) and I figured that I would rather do it and take 3-4 months some day.

I was also invited to join a group going to the Grand Erg Occidental in Tunisia in April-May, which I would have loved to have done but I need to be in SE Asia for work in that period.

So, looks like heading back to Morocco mid-Sep to mid-Oct. The tentative plan is to take both our Land Rovers down to Erg Chegaga area, set up camp in the dunes and spend some days just playing in the sand. Then head back north either doing some mountain tracks or a swing across the Rekkam again. Really just want to test out the 90 as an overlander.

I informed my work that my 2020 sabbatical is still a go and am still considering Australia, South America or the trans-Canada as potential destinations.

So that's the Popski's Private Expeditions update!

Trying to save money to get a campervan / Motorhome, see more of the UK would like to save for a trip back to Morocco,
Trouble is when we try to make a plan something always try's to stop everything.
