We travelled a long way and spent a quite a few
days on the road. I have no fancy heading for each stage of the journey
so I've just broken it down into each country. This is the diary I wrote
while travelling, mostly during the times when we weren't fighting mud,
sand, beaurocrates, or anything else that makes life a little exciting.
went through 17 countries and there are seventeen links. Whenever you see
the symbol on the left it will bring you back to this page so you can choose
another country. I have put some of my better pictures here. We took over
fifty spools so picking the good ones, that look good on a computer monitor,
took loads of time. They may change as time passes.
I took many "measurements" while on the road. These are shown at the
start of each day. The Odo is the reading on the car odometer the morning
of that day. Co-ords are the North/South and East/West GPS readings on
the morning of that day, i.e. where we spent the previous night and Fuel
is how much we put in during the day and the Odo at that point.
Here's an example :
||N 36 24 51.5
E 42 21 32.3
||50 L 36 500km
It means :
A note for the GPS readings: They were all done
using the WGS84 standard on a Garmin12.
We started the morning with 36 367km on the clock.
We were at 36 degrees, 24 minutes and 51,5 seconds North of the equator
42 degrees, 21 minutes and 32.3 seconds East of Greenwhich.
And put in 50 litres of fuel when the Odo reading was 36 500km
