Sahara for first-timer
My girlfriend and I have just a few hundred miles of offroad experience. The plan is to get some training in Morocco, ride through all the pistes (M1-M6) listed in the book, come back to France and then head for the Big Trip across the Sahara: Tunisia, Hassi Messaoud, HbG, Djanet, Tamanrasset, Arlit, Agadez...
Does it sound sensible or do you - the Sahara veterans - think that we are going to bite more than we can chew? How does Morocco compare with southern Algeria, is it another order of magnitude? What would be a good preparation then?
We would really love to see the Hoggar and the Tassili instead of following the Atlantic route.
