In 2009 myself and three others crossed the Sahara Desert on kite buggy's (Mad Way South - The Sahara Challenge).
This year we're at it again with plans to cross The Simpson Desert - Australia. Although not as big as the Sahara, it will present its own challenges.
I'm putting the word out that there are 10 spots available for anyone that wants to join.

I'm based in California these days, and happy to answer any questions. Swing me an email and i'll be happy to email you or give you a call.
