Yesterday I opened my newspaper and found that the yearly fun drive registration
was OPEN and I was in the office within the hour.
This year I don't want to miss it...
We participated twice before and it is so much fun and so exciting to join, it gets the adrenalin going.
Last year it was an over-nighter and I didn't like the idea of driving for two days, so I didn't join.
This year I discovered that we just sleep in the desert and after breakfast we drive back home over tarmac, so it's do-able.
14th and 15th of January, I'll take my camera and share our new adventure.
These are some pictures from two years ago, a few hundred cars joined in, this is the only way I would go into the desert. There are many 'marshals' to help me out when I get stuck in the sand and the maps that are given are clear to follow, I just follow the tracks.. Yes! I am chicken...
Here we got stuck in soft sand and my daughter was trying to dig us out.
This picture is of Nad at the start line at about 7:00 in the morning and we finished after 4:00 o'clock when we were greeted by a big BBQ party.
Keep an eye out for my next adventure!
