Sounds ideal to me, but like you said solar showers could be a bit of an issue. With the amount of sun we are getting :lol: :lol:
Do you have the mm route available

No problems this end started the Frontera today and checked its life support systems all seem to be in full working order after I ripped the bloody CD player out as it kept trying to eject a non existent CD and running the battery flat.

So Danny don't worry I won't be coming in the Green Oval I'm coming in the best 4x4 by far the FRONTERA !! :thumbup:

Just noticed the camp site doesn't accept groups of more than 4 unless it's a family group, has anyone looked into this ?

OK set off from Basingstoke last night, now at a base camp south of Manchester getting acclimatised to being this far from home, and taking lesson in understanding the lingo up here. Will be staying here till Friday and then push on to final camp. :D :shock:

Hopefully be there by 7pm at the latest. :drink: :drink: :drink: just in time for a beer.
PS do you think I would need to bring a 6 pack of beer or will 4 cans do as it only for the 2 nights

Are we going to have a list of phone numbers for contacting and emergencies on the way.
