Marrocos January 2012
I am going to Marroco on the 2 of January,
Me and my colleague, we are going with only one 4x4 , so I am asking if there is anyone is in Marroco at that time that we can join to travel.
We plan to go from Nador to Figuig them down to the Atlantic Cost.
The idea is to go off road as much as possible ( But not to put our lives in any danger) , camping as much as possible.

Thanks Regards

I did several of the routes from Chris Scots Morocco Overland book.

MH2 through the Atlas Tinerhir to El Kebab is tarmac all the way but still a stunning drive
MH9 is mostly Tarmac now except the middle 25km or so
MS5 Foum Zguid to Zagora still all piste but both ends look ready for tarmac. Made for a quick fun balst through though. Middle section is still the old piste
MS9 Ouarazazate to Tazenakht is fantastic
MS2 Zagora to Tazzarine is fun but lots of short gullies

If you get the chace I'd reccomend a day at Hansjorg Voth's sculptures near Erfoud. Bit of off road to get there and stunning scenery. There is a charge now 200Dh for 1 and I think you are supposed to let the guardian know you are coming but I just went as I didn't know this.

When I was with Waypoint Tours we had a fantastic 4 days from Assa - Smara - Boudjour skirting the border

No problem Alex,

Just mailed them over, you should have 10 files. The ones that go from wildcamp to wildcamp are all off road, the others al have some road on them.

I am also planning a short trip with my gf on rented bikes, might I also trouble you for the logs?

Hey Mark, I was wondering whether you should possibly have mentioned you were gonna record and distribute waypoints from our trip? (Waypoints. Get it?) Do you reckon the other clients would be cool with it?
I'm not dummy spitting, but it doesn't feel right to me.

Apologies Mark, you referred to your ones. Sorry fellow, I should have read it properly first. What a *****. Shrink
