kenya to ethiopia after Christmas

My son and I will arrive in Nairobi about Dec. 22 and considering heading up to Addis about a week later. Anyone else around who wants to go up with us, especially the Marsabit to Moyale part?
Anybody have current info on the road and security situation? I heard the rains turned the road into absolute s... a while back.

Cheers
Larry and Mike, on Cape Town to Ethiopia journey and looping around Lake Vic. and back to CT from Namibia, on a couple BMW 650 gs's

Nairobi to Ethiopia, or the other way too

Hi Loraine, I am currently in Mombasa for a few days post-Christmas but then headed back to Nairobi for a few weeks. Looking at going up to Ethiopia a little later now like late January. Anyone coming or going these days what with the Sudan thing and the usual helter skelter on the Hell Road?

Cheers,
Larry
