Current Goal

To travel to Paris to follow the Paris to Dakar 2007 route as closely as possible. See the attached map. Please take as many photos as possible along my journey. Once I have reached Dakar please return me to Australia & my owner. On the way I would like to travel to the cache In Memory of Andy GC135P7 which is in memory of Andy Caldecott who died tragically during the 2006 Paris to Dakar on 9 January.

About This Item

Jeep No. 25 TB

This year (2007) the race started in Lisbon (Portugal) and ran through Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, and finally ended in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. The route ran over 5000 miles of rocks, sand, riverbeds and potholed roads. The race was held over 15 days from 6 to 21 January. Conditions change, but the heart of the race is really the middle of the shifting sands of the Sahara desert.

The Dakar Rally requires extreme endurance and navigational skills. There was only 1 rest day this year (2007) and it was spent tinkering the vehicles to run to maximum capacity despite the problems of sand, sand and more sand in every nook and cranny of the engines. Every stage of a regular rally runs about 300 miles and every day sees average temperatures of around 130 Fahrenheit.
