Morocco - Cross the Atlas, reach the Sahara and return May '11
Morocco trip anyone? I am taking a trip to Morocco in May, dates will be around Friday the 6th to Monday the 16th (give or take and wandered if anyone else will be around or would like to join me for some or all of the trip. Objective for the trip is to cross the atlas, spend a night camped in the Sahara and return to Spain in one piece. I aim to do as many tracks as time allows without working too hard and have built in two rest days (possibly three), the itinerary is as follows;
1 Tangier to El Kebab Metalled road 388km
2 El Kebab to Tinerhir MH2 Tracks 241km
3 Tinerhir to Nekob MH4 Tracks 112km
4 Nekob to Zegora MS1 Tracks 121km
Zagora to Foum Zguid MS5 Tracks 130km
5 Foum Zguid to Tagounite MS7 Tracks 163km
6 Tagounuti to Tangier Metalled Road 920km
7 Spare day as needed
8 Spare day as needed
9 Spare day as needed
10 ferry to Spain
So it's pretty much a good ride with mostly tracks, only want to use asphalt when I need to make good time.
Am travelling on an XT660z which has been mildly modified to cope with this sort of trip.
Drop me a line.
