We have updated the BigSky Adventures website with new journal and photo entries.

Be sure to visit the website for the latest information! A short update follows:

The Pyrenees

A key to any overland trip is the preparation. The better prepared, the more relaxed and enjoyable a trip will be. With this in mind, we are taking two weeks off to enjoy the best of France and the Pyrenees.

We depart UK shores this evening on the 11pm train through the tunnel. Once on French soil, it will be a midnight drive South to our first campsite near Toulous.

The Route South

 Our intention was to travel through West Africa entering into Chad and Sudan. Unfortunately, due to the humanatarian crisis in the Darfur region we are having to change our plans.

Our initial thoughts (always subject to change) are to travel through West Africa and then down the West coast through Gabon, Congo, DR Congo and Angola.

More Mods Added

 Over the last month, Maggie (the Land Rover) has had quite a few mods added. The latest fittings include two side lockers for storing jerry cans and water.
