UK Spain Morocco leaving 15 April

Hey all

I,m leaving UK Friday 15th catching ferry to Spain and then driving heading South onwards to Morocco.

Happy to meet up with any others going the same way and travel together.

Have posted this in 'Travellers seeking travellers'.

I,ll be in a Landrover camper. Cruising speed 100kph!!!

Rough plan is Atlas Mtns climbing Mt Toubkal play in the dunes for a bit then head over to WS.

Catch you on the road somewhere perhaps

Thanks Tim

Yes weather can be variable at 4000m so should be fun. Can't be any worse than climbing in Scotland in winter time though !!

Hi Darren

Nice set up - and very clean. Will keep an eye out for you. PM me if you want contact details. Having done a few bike trips through Central Australia (on a GS Pig) I know that any back up is always welcome. Have a safe trip south.

Hi

And if you happen to see a blue and white camper called Moglet, come and have a cuppa tea!
100kph is too quick for her I'm afraid!

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.
