Fair game, all you need is a lrft as basic mods (snorkel too if
anticipiting overlanding through Africa generally), the rest comes later
if the trips become suitably frequent. If your vehicle is well
maintained and you keep fluids, lubricants, consumables etc in kits, and
you have the basic tools and mechanical bits, including rescue
equipment, again, basic, then the world is your oyster.
You don't actually need extra mods (like lights) unless anticipating
night driving in the desert or whatever for instance.
Its the only environment that I'm really happy in, and comfortable
with, I'm not an expert, obviously, as I've only been doing this for
about 10 years.

Maybe some day I will venture further than france and all that lovely
wine, but not for a good while as the two sons would not be too keen on
long driving and hot hot temps. And any way with all the mods I would
have to do to this cruiser I would be broke again. If it keeps going I
will be happy enough.

Renate
So if your not an expert after ten years how long do you have to wait to get your diploma. The other thing that I would like to know seeing as I have you talting now is ( ARE YOU READY.)
The people how are they generally.
what should one not do,
Where should one not go,
What is the food like,
What about dieseses,
What about the water,
Do you need jabs first,
whats the availability of machanics and parts,
what about the quality of the diesel,
what about all the insects ,spiders,snakes, mosies,
what are the cops like,
is it generally safe in north Africa,
are there any good places to go,
any WW11 sites of interest, museums etc,
Bascially tell me what you know the good and bad bits.
as usual I have questions which seem to come one after the other and I have to slap myself to stop.
thanks if you are mad enough to answer these.You really should do some work now its alright for me im at home still out of work with this crappy back of mine.
