Bonjour à tous
Arrived yesterday evening in Toulouse, almost stuck by snow in the Pyrenées crossing
A really good trip even under the moroccan rains. All Moroccans are saying that it is a god's thanks those rains even if peoples are died ( cynic but heard)
Nador Debdou, no more tracks, almost all paved, we did it almost all the time under rain and storm
Debdou Talsinnt through le Rekkam, a part under the rain, twice blocked by the oueds, crossing tricky. Arrived at Talsinnt by night under a
storm just before the electricity has been definitively cut. Stuck in Talsint one day because no gas, but also no electricity no water and
always rain. Someone brought us gas from Gourama 70 km far from here.
Talsinnt Merzouga, very muddy, col de Belkhacem nice with big stones and heavy steps. Unable to cross the oued at Boudnib, we took the
bridge few km before and towards South East offroad to find the normal track, Not many peoples in Merzouga
Informations saying that at Oued Rheris is not possible to cross after Taouz, so we headed to Rissani ( all the gardens flooded ) crossed the
oued and took the track towards Mhamid, stop at auberge Tombouctou. Water in the shotts and also grass in the desert, feeling to ride on a
golf. Some places very muddy, viewed some footprints of 4x4 stuck in the mud, needed to select fine your track.
Mhamid Tata through Foum Zguid.
Crossed a part of Chegaga, but had soft sand, heavy bikes and we took a direction too many North oriented and we got stuck in small soft
dunes, we got a lot of problems to start the bikes, and we get rapidly exhausted and decided to get out through north towards Foum Zguid
and Tata on the road.
Tata Tafroute, tracks at Akka and a track in a Canyon very beautiful, stop at Igmir in the known guesthouse, we eated there and the the meal
will let us souvenirs
Very beautiful palm grove and a very warm welcome by Mr Ali in his very welcoming guesthouse. But the night before was very rough, the
light in the toilet stayed alight all the night with a very efficient synchronization of us
. The day on the track was very difficult, specially for my mate who didn't eat nothing all the day and he finished totally exhausted
Aguinan Ouarzazat track through Askaoun, wonderfull, arrived at Anzel under a storm we decide to head towards Ouarzazat by the road and
not the track.
Stop at Bikerhome, to fix our bikes. I met gandini downtown, the news from north are very bad, I call two guesthouse at Imilchil, they
recommend strongly to avoid Dades tracks, jaffar seems to be broken, on internet the weather forecast rain in the north for the next days,
so we decided to take the road to get back north
Ourzazat Midelt, very long and boring, I don't know if it's due to the tourista but I was freezed all the day, arrived at midelt the snow is on the
top off the moutains
In the morning it is freezed, certainly around -5°C, road difficult very cold, closed to Nador we can see all the damages due to the floods
We took a boat which leaves at 10 30 PM.
Soon pics and more detailed report.
