    Thanks for the first two episodes which I really enjoyed. Parts actually brought out some laughter sch is your style.
    Awaiting the rest at your pleasure.

    Thanks for your RR, I really enjoyed reading it. I must agree a heavy Over-landing 4x4 is a handful in those dunes, the lighter the better.
    If you really want to enjoy the dune driving take a FJ Cruiser to those dunes but even with an FJ you can make mistakes
    Thanks again for sharing.

    Great and honest report thank you - many of us know the feeling of apprehension and depression around vehicle and terrain challenges. I was forewarned to some extent and went as light as possible and learnt a massive amount about sand driving. I also agree about Live the Journey desert tours - they are geared to playing in the dunes to a significant extent and miss out quite a bit of the interest, wildlife and history. I only found this out after reading accounts of other more informative tours after my Namib trip. But I could not fault the care and catering.

    Hi GMan,
    A very interesting report. I had downloaded all 6 episodes but it was obviously too much for my laptop to digest as it crashed shortly thereafter. Please let me know where I can get the whole report to re download it

    Gman disappeared...

    This trip report is like hearing of the famous Basic Instinct scene for months and you finally get hold of the movie... Just as Sharon Stone is about to cross her legs, you sit forward in anticipation and then the power goes off...
