is there anybody looking for pathfinder?
we have managed to cross West Africa several times by off-road vehicle. Not smuggling, but just for fun. We used to drive our wheel4x4chair from Europe to Morocco, via Western Sahara and Atlantic road on seaside with tides timetable to Mauri, Mali, Senegal and Burkina Faso, all in winter European time. Not a kind of Plymouth-Banjul rally with donation aim. Just as little as possible pay for the event.
Border crossings, dirty Dakar rally paths via Mahina and Satadougou and Timbouktou/Dogon country would be everylife. Our problem for next journey is budget, not desire!
What about you? We are ready to enter any adventure with us to anybody interested in professional guide to this area. We do not guarantee sobriety and survive ...
Chris, sorry for that!
