From the archives: Western Sahara Convoy


Twenty years ago, if you were heading South along the Atlantic route, you would have needed to join a convoy in Dakhla, Western Sahara.

The team from 'Drive the Globe' were on one of the last convoys South before the requirement to be escorted South was cancelled.

We have finished day two of the convoy, cleared minefields, and entered Mauritania. We are the only Americans ever to bring vehicles on this route!

Anyone remember the convoy?
