hey that is cool...simple things for simple minds my wife is saying over my shoulder. Boy has she got her priorities wrong.

JT we live in Maadi (near Residence Hotel). Drink at Maadi House or occasionally the ACE club. Will get to BCA eventually. We're away for the summer too, back mid-July. Got the car but not the bike yet - so bloody complicated getting this stuff done. Got the green light for a motorstrada so that's my plan.

A long drive to pick up jerries - as good a reason as any. If you'd like an extra in the motorcade count me in - I need to get some petrol-stink in the jeep.

cheers Brett

Is it more beautiful than the Egyptian sea shore (on the other side of the border, not on Aqaba gulf), or almost the same?

Hi Roro

and totally safe though
but will be sohard to do it with a solo motorbike,for fuel and enough water to drink

Dive camp? Wondered what you were doing all the way down there Lahami. Long ride/drive, s and diving. Sounds like a genius plan. After the summer period might be the go.

cheers, Brett

Port Safaga

Hey Lahami

thanks for the offer ... and it`s quite possible

So, Port Safaga would be the place to look for a boat and it might be possible to do the paperwork (CdP, registration, traffic police, etc.) legally, because it`s an exit port ,right

@roro

you really think the road will be open .... I doubt it
I worked as an PADI OWSI in Hurghada for a year some 20 years ago and I remember the slow development back then ....

anyway, still some time untill we hit Egypt with the bikes and hopefully everything works in our favour .... Inshallah
