how far will i get

Hi all
A bit of a strange one but here gose,we were ment to be heading off to namibia at the end of the month we were going down the east coast but due to the trubles we have change our route to the west coast we had 12 months to do it in but now i had to leave England early and meet my wife in switzerland, where we were going to wait for the carnet.
But now i've been offered a really good job in italy so can only travel antill the end of May as i have to start in june so hears the qustion How far can i get down the west coast before i have to turn back to make it to italy in time i was thinking maybe Senagal? and as i now won't have time to sort out the carnet can i get away with not having one.
Cheers
Gary

Instead of trying to go as far as possible, why not spend more time in a few countries...I'm sure you will enjoy the countries a lot more that way...instead of treating your trip like a possible 'race'

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
