  • Desert Crossing - Part I

    275,669 views 9 years ago
    In the Spring of 2001, DRIVE THE GLOBE | Overland Adventures completed Stage I of its Trans-Africa Expedition.

    This video features highlights of the Sahara crossing, made between Nouadhibou and Nouakchott Mauritania, a vast, desolate desert expanse where the only road is the wind swept sand dunes and hard rock strewn piste.

    This nearly 250 mile journey took three days and saw temperatures climb to over 110 degrees fahrenheit.

    It was completed with four Land Rover expedition vehicles.

    Participants included Expedition Leaders, Michael Ladden and Paul Shumway, as well as Pat Macomber, Al Cornell, Jim Leach, Wilson Bullard, Shane Ballensky and Ed Messenger.
