Travel Buddy - Morocco, Mauritania, Mali (for now-ish)

Hey,

Please see link below, but my 'mate' seems to have left me stranded in Morocco so I'm looking to ride with others to head south...

If you are around and don't mind me tagging along, that would be cool. Near Agadir at the moment but will be heading south through Western Sahara over the next week. Will prob stop just before the Mauri border for a day or two to chill and put the tyres I am carrying on the bike. Then south (Mauri, Mali, Niger...etc is the rough plan).

My email is on the contact part of my website, or PM me on here.

Cheers,

Chris

Dude, nightmare.

We (Ed and Dan, the guys on the white Africa Twins you met at HU Ripley) are now in Nouadhibou and will be heading on soon, but will be passing back through Nouakchott on probably tuesday / Wednesday next week 23/24th October on our way to Diarma and thence to Senegal.

You could easily do Western Sahara in just a few days but I know you're keen to piste it as much as you can so I don't know how that ties up with your plans.

Get in touch if you're getting lonely, I'll PM you my mobile number so you can txt me (though response may be slow as I'm not sure what service is like here in Mauri).

Take it easy dude,
d.
