Wow! Has anyone done this? I’d love more first-hand info about what this experience is actually like!

Hello! I did this 20 years ago. For all it’s worth, I tried to put down in writing my experience. It’s more anecdotes than usual info, and bear in mind that I’m more a traveller than a writer. Anyway, if you’re interested, here it is: Hitchhiking Across the Sahara Desert.

Oh! Max, I can’t wait to sit down with this.

This was an incredible read @kalahari1955! I can’t believe they dropped everything as soon as you started crying. Stress, man.

This looks like the train in the Matthew McConaughey movie “Sahara”.
