The project of driving through the sahara with my 2CV and then to Middle East & Central ASia is doing pretty well. Start is scheduled for mid-february. Reading you posts here suggest that most people don't actually cross the sahara to niger from Algeria, but do tour Alg & drive back to Europe.
I read the story of these to belgian guys currently driving this route & I feel they were really lucky to get military escort to the alg border from Tam (by chance?). I don't think I want to try this in only one car, esp a 2WD, so what are my chances to meet someone along the alg route who is wanting to head further south to Niger?
By the way, travellers intending to do the same trip at the same time, feel free to contact me!

Normal cars go to paradise, 2CV's go everywhere!
