Sunny January through Morocco to Mauritania

Reading the reports of terrible weather have surprised me, as I have been 3 times during the 'winter' to this fantastic country and always had good weather.

i am expecting to be there from about mid Jan and will go south asap!!

Anyone like to 'team up'?

Paul

I've done most of that route at least once, the bit from R606 to Talsint is very remote but very nice. The single red line heading from Talsint towards Gourrama is all piste although the last time I did it in 2010 it was very hard, washed out gullies from the melting snow making it hard to find a way through (in a 4x4).

Sounds like I will there a few days ahead of you

Hello Menih-Andrej

You can travel more or less on a piste all the way from Mhamid to Tata if the army allow it. You may have problems on the piste from Foum Zguid to Tata, I have done that piste and also been turned around by the army, I hear that a few packes of cigarettes can allow transit.

It's well worth trying the Foum Zguid to Tata leg because it's very nice.







Do you have a guide book or Garmin Mapsource? If so I can send you some gpx logs if you like?

Hello Reinhard

I don't think I can PM Marius because he does not have enough posts on the Hubb, you have more or less the same information as me anyway to pass on

Regards

Matt

My pleasure Andrej

Nothing further East, I'm sorry.

If you see us on the road wave us down, Christopher (my boy) will love to meet more bikers to talk about on his return.

Have a great trip
