That's just TOO funny. So basically, they confused East and West, found the sea and ended up kitesurfing instead. It may take them a while to cross the Sahara. I shall be checking in daily. :thumb:

I hope someones doing a documentary on this ...
I can't wait for them to get 2 days into the desert and run out of Ice, confuse sand with water and start shitting eggshells.

Pure genius, well done Monty Python, nice disguises....

Just checking their website and they even have "sock sponsor's" Wish I could be cool like them and get free socks. I'd be stoked. For Sure

Day3:
Already they are complaining about the heat and soft sand.

Do these clowns know what they are doing?

Day4:
It's cool, they're sorted. They got a backup 4x4 and drive to the good spots :thumb:

Ermm... <cough>
Am I readin this right? I'm thinking they don't want to go anywhere near the desert.

Day 1
Start: Nouakchott, capital of Mauritania.
Ultimate destination: Saint Louis on the coast just inside the border of Senegal (South! of start)
Objective: About a 400km trip to TranSahara!!?
...
Day 4
Boutilimit: They are already about 150km ESE of Nouakchott (just a short car ride :P)

These guys are trying to avoid the Sahara aren't they... not that I mind, I'm already a fan.
This just makes it better! :D
