Musings on A Gentle Drive to Kenya
I wonder how much the insurance will be?
After all, it is not your regular stroll down a country lane, is it?
From what I can gather, the route from Calais to Ankara is dual carriageway, apart from a stretch in Bulgaria. But once into Syria, it’s all change.
Are there any other hotspots I should know about?HELP!
The intention is to visit charity projects en route to give them a bit of publicity. I hope that at least some of them can collect used deep fry oil that I can use as fuel.
What else will I need, apart from tents, cooking facilities? A co-driver, preferably someone with reasonable knowledge of the workings of a 4×4 vehicle would be good. Someone who can put up with a grumpy old man (me).
I suppose that, whatever vehicle I manage to acquire, it will need to be “modified” as well as having a full service before we set out. A sump guard springs to mind. An extra spare wheel wouldn’t be a bad idea, either.
More musings, comments and maybe even some thought will follow – maybe.
If you have done this trip or something similar, or have any ideas, please let me know.
