Another update! I know, I know… it’s the second one this week…. but it’s almost the weekend so you cannot be mad at me! Plus, I’m in a really good mood as my motorbike passed its MOT today (well, by the time this update is published yesterday), so she’s back on the road baby! The [...]
There’s a strip of land betwen Western Sahara and Mauritannia which the UN has designated a neutral zone. This land has no government, no law and no taxes… but it does have plenty of landmines… as the less fortunate cars in the pictures show! As always, pictures on the site!
Another round of pictures uploaded! These have been “ready” a while, but as there were so many (over 1,000!) WordPress was having issues dealing with the upload. Anyhow – pictures taken in Morocco and Western Sahara are now uploaded I know there are a few duplicates… I’m just hoping that at least one of every [...]
Another batch of pictures in under a week (since the last was published at least ) Apologies for the watermarks on the lens on the ferry, and (c) to the images of the merc components to the random russian site I took a picture of as there was no way to print the details when [...]
Well, it’s not been a week, but the next batch of pictures are ready! Click on read more to see the pictures taken in France and Andorra during the 2010-2011 Timbuktu Challenge!

While on topic, please note that subscriptions to the TeamBookTwo mailing list are now closed. If you [...]

We patched this with rescue tape, which is advertised as the dogs b*llocks, resistant to heat, pressure, fuel, yada-yada. Let me tell you something about rescue tape. It’s utter CRAP! Less than 10km [...]
A quick night stop and off we were! The last leg of the journey to Timbuktu! Another 6am wakeup on the 14th, and we headed down the laterite track… As we reversed out of the hotel, the car crunched over a large rock… no apparent damage so we headed off.
“Early” in the morning of the 12th (we got told 8… in reality the chap arrived around 10), we got the customs formalities done (another 5000 CFA) and tried to drive to Bamako. I say tried, as at the first checkpoint we had to turn around and go back to the police station and get [...]
Just a quick picture taken off the coast while driving to Dahkla from Layoone….
