Follow Robert, Overland Bound Member 33 and 48. He is in the middle of an epic expedition, Overlanding through Morocco!
Robert is the quintessential overlander. His vehicles are purpose built, and and most of the modifications he has done himself!
In Robert’s own words below!
And this is roughly our route through Morocco
Think we will have a different one when we are back home.
Today it was trailer packing time. The trailer changed from simple weekend mode into the long distance mode.
So, we have in the trailer now. 75 ltr of Fuel. 50 ltr of Water ( drinkable water )
Our chairs, table, kitchen stuff, Cobb, Toilet, toilet tent, shower warm water bags, water pump, and tent poles.
We packed it in layers, so when we unpack it, we can take what we need first. Table, the chairs and the kitchen.
On the trailer in the luggage rack we have a little BBQ and a bag full of dog food.
And there is in and on the trailer still room for other things.
We already packed some stuff into the van. But we cant do everything already, as we have to enjoy another weekend away before the holidays.
But I think most is done!

Just a quick update from Morocco.We are at Chefchouen with one day delay. During the trip through spain my water pump broke down, but luckily I brought a spare one. So with the help of my friend Torsten we manage to do a roadside repair within 3.5 hours. this due a very stubborn bolt. Unfortunately that took away our time schedule, so we decided, as we are on holidays, we take it easy and arrive one day later in morocco. So yesterday in the morning we arrived at the ferry and embarked to Morocco. Customs took just one hour an of we went to Chefchouen. We arrived there around three and made camp.
This morning after a good night sleep and a great evening of talks I checked the water, oil and brakes. All ok, so tomorrow we can do the second part of our trip. And hopefully the first pistes.
Here some pictures.
Roadside repair. making good bonding
Skai wants to be the navigator.
The ladies at the ferry ticket office. I can recommend this one, they are cheap, about 150 € cheaper.
At last we arrived at the ferry
