Someone to share a container? South America or Africa?

I'm looking at setting off in about October. Plans are really flexible. I'm trying to keep the costs down for shipping and was wondering if anyone wants to share a container to either location ?

My vehicle is prep'd and the shakedown completed. Not sorted any visa's or paperwork out yet. Can set of with as little as a few months notice. Not even decided which continent to go to first! Flexible on dates or landing location. Would even consider Australia although don't really want to go there first as we've already done it as a mini trip in a rental Land Cruiser. However we're open to suggestions.

pm. me if you want to have a chat. Its only a 110 so half a container is spare I would imagine. The further on with prep/arranging it the more likely i might be to pay more than half. A good deal for both parties in my eyes.

Plans change so we are also now looking at overland to Egypt via the ferry from Italy (driving to Italy from UK) and then continue down though Africa.

So if anyone wants to share a journey, container or any other part of their trip i'm open to suggestions. I did read about sharing costs into China but the dates were a bit wrong. As i say, open to any ideas or plans. We have two years to go anywhere. I can quit my job in a month !

The ferry is cancelled so we're back looking at other routes into Africa. If your planning the same and are near ready we'd love to hear from you.
