Good luck with that Pete. Trying to do your bit for immigration figures? :lol:
What's the plan when you get there? Lots of pics would be great.
What is happening with your wheel carriers?

No solid plans as such. Arrive, find long term accomodation, fix anything mechanical. Its more for the experience than money. Wheel carriers are being taken over by syncronutz, more info soon. Could be a great stopover place for overland trips - syncropendence in the gambia??????????

Good luck Pete....me and the wifie have been to Gambia twice (prior to kids) and we loved it. We tried to see the 'real' Gambia and went off roading abit (not difficult as there is or was only one main road in the whole country!!!!)
Have a great time.... keep in touch with us over here wont you.

Best wishes and thanks for the wheel carriers
