hello chris and everybody else,
of course i agree that the sahara is quiet a big place! but as most countries are off-limits for the majority of desert lovers nowadays, there is virtually a rather small area accessible...
after five morocco journeys i'm already getting problems in finding new places and routes. this leads me and some other poeple straight to the southern border area. it's true that no one should ever mess around with mines, but when the explorer inside of you is calling, sometimes it's like heart over mind...i guess you know what i'm talking about ;-)
good luck, again
oh, one more thing: the draa valley west of assa is not a border area and has never been, so there is surely no danger at all to expect.
