    and you don't need a 4x4 - 7.5ton army truck to do it , the page on the Merc makes good reading

    Thanks for that, as I'm particularly interested in the possibility of doing a similar African trip, but down and around the West side.

    Ooooerrr Have you been to Africa's west coast before, In my youth I spent several years working in the tropical's area of the west coast, they don't call it "The white man's grave" for nothing.
