Leaving tomorrow. 5 Objectives:
1. Deliver medical and dental kits to remote communities
2. Spot a Sand Cat
3. a Selfie at the Tropic of Cancer
4. Throw a stone into Mauritania
and 5. Do it all with astro navigation...well, some of it, anyway. I'm intrigued to discover how the LRDG did it in WW2 without GPS. scratching chin

Good luck with the trip we did Western Sahara 2 years ago. I'd add the shipwrecks along the coast to your list. Enjoy and don't forget regular updates

Can't promise to be as regular as we'd like, but follow us at one-ten to tantan if you like.

Excuse my ignorance, but what's a Sand Cat?
