Back from Libya'07

Hello all,
I just returned from a long trip in Libya (and Tunisia), which was excellent.
In a nuthsell - 7500km across Libya and Tunisia, of which 3200km on
and off piste, 15 days camping in the desert. Can you ask for more?
No real dramas there, just peace and quiet. In the area of Awbari or
Murzuq one can travel for days and never see another car.
Generally, or should I say "colonelly" Libya is a very quiet country.
Well, after 32 years in power the Big Man in Sunglasses has mastered
the art of making people happy by letting them get by without doing
any tedious work.
Jorgen, another ELCO lister, who travelled with us, is still somewhere
in southern Europe.
I am working on the tracklogs and pictures, so watch this space.
The LC perfored as expected, i.e. no problems at all. I did not get
any punctures and only lost one Bilstein shock absorber (remind me to
explain how).
On another, albeit related note, while scouring my pockets I
discovered 75 Libyan Dinars which I forgot to change before leaving
the country.
At the current price of DIN 0.15 per litre, in Libya this is worth 500
litres of diesel, but if any one is interested, I can part with my wad
of cash for a mere 30 quid.

Joaquim,
Yes, I did, all the 1250km to Marseille. But I'd prefer driving a
shorter distance from where you are :)
