Hi all

Next week I am taking an Amarok off road across Andorra
Doing a bit of camping and also staying at some carefully picked
good value hotels too. The route was just a bit too difficult for
a 4 Motion Transporter I felt and I couldn't scrounge one either

I will be posting updates on my Facebook page
which in in my signature if you fancy a laugh at me
and my dreadful navigation.
Pics
Videos
Food and wine
Maybe even a competition


The hope if if its a success to drive my Sportline Kombi DSG
to Morocco in the early part of next year say March or April
and would love for some of you guys or girls to join me in your own
T5 if I can get it off the ground.

Thanks for all the likes BTW as I know a lot come from here
Swiss

Edit
Why am I doing Andorra
To sell 100 Amaroks and 75 4 Motions between now and January end
Because its raining here in the UK
Because you all seem to have far more fun than me and I want to catch up

I would really like it if we could do a similar trip
in T5. Not so much camping as some hotels are so so cheap
say £30 - £40 a night

Ferry to Santander
Drive across Spain in a pre planned route
Cross to Morocco at Gib

Hi there

Both sound like fantastic trips.

Remember in Spain, if comes a bit unraveled a lot of bars and cafes have rooms to let very cheap,. which isn't obvious no signs etc, you have to ask. Have a look at the room first, this normal, if you don't fancy it they wont be offended! but the price might sway you.

Have a great time.

I followed a T4 synchro through the Atlas Mountains a few years ago while in my Defender and it didn't have any trouble on the unpaved piste , I thinks they were high top ex German utility vans ..... :)

It rains a lot in Andorra too unfortunately!
What the white rain in April H: I've sent swiss a pm
I maybe running down to morocco in march / April for 3 weeks as a back up vehicle for the BMW GS boys who went last year. I carry there luggage, tools, and spares and follow them as best as I can but we set up meeting points as long as its not on sand . the van will also act as a recovery vehicle in the event of something going wrong. Last year a thrown rod through the crank case meant a swap of bikes. Should be fun :D

every winter (5 month holiday ever year :D ) I drive from Scotland, over to Finland, down to the Alpes, down to Morocco and back to Scotland on a big extreme sports holiday :D
Great trip and T5 has always done me proud.

Hope you have a great trip, its so worth it, oh and don't go on Spanish toll motorways, they cost more than the fuel you will use and the dual caragway next to the highway is free and goes to the same place ;)
