In the meantime, I thought it might be useful to add a few links to some of the sites/people we’ve had contact with since we started all these shenanigans!  The list is a long way from exhaustive, in no particular order, and I’ll add to it as I remember things.  If there’s anything specific you think we might have looked into/dealt with etc and would like a pointer, please give us a shout.

 

Africa Overland Network - The main pinboard for finding other sites by equally mad people heading off on adventures

HUBB - Horizons Unlimited, a massive site originally for motorcycle travellers but expanded so much its good for everyone

Motorhome Facts - Forum for anything related to motorhomes (and often things totally unrelated too!)

Benzworld - Forum for anything related to Mercedes vehicles

Atkinson Vos - Unimog specialist, for sales, spares and repairs.  And they do love a bit of cake!

Pennine Outdoors - Yorkshire based company that made us some fantastic spare wheel covers

Thorn Tree forum - Lonely Planets chat room for all things travelly

DrFox - approved online pharmacy for anti malarial drugs, often cheaper than private prescription from GP

Chris Scott - Saharan travel guru, excellent website and books, masses of info for digestion!

Royal Geographical Society - Excellent Far from Help medical courses a couple of times a year

Stanfords - huge map shop in London, also have an online shop

Desert Winds - Tom Sheppards publishing company website for his own excellent books, including the inimitable Vehicle Dependant Expedition Guide - a virtual Bible for anyone contemplating these kinds of trips!

Adrian Flux - Vehicle Insurance providers.  There’s not a huge amount of choice for trucks like Moglet so we pretty much have AF or nothing.  Not that that’s a bad thing, I’d just prefer to have options!  We’ve never had to make a claim, but when we have had to speak to them they’ve been ok.

MaxAdventure - These guys are experts at long distance expeditions, and whilst we’ve not had any involvement with them with regards this trip, they’re about to embark on a record breaking attempt travelling from the UK to Cape Town via Europe and the east coast of Africa in a Discovery, in less that 14 days!  It’s a charity run raising money for Help for Heroes, so if you haven’t come across the site before, pop along and maybe donate a bob or two...

Ribblesdale Auto Electrics - Star players in the Eberspacher installation and service world - well, we think so anyway!

Olaf - Free to download vector map of Morocco and Western Sahara for your GPS

If you feel like dropping us a line, that’d be lovely :-)  You can use the form below, or send an old fashioned email to mogletinafrica@gmail.com if you prefer.  It’s always good to hear from people, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
