LONE GALLOPER OVERLAND - MOROCCO "Gates Of Africa" EXPEDITION 2017
Overlanding does not come easy, or cheap. We work to get our vehicle "Moka" ready and up to par for the upcoming years of exploring! 2015 marked the beginning of a new challenge. Our Adriatic Circle Expedition the coining adventure that brought us together and consolidated that passion for exploring with a land based vehicle.
This year (2016) we will be embarking on the Magna Grecia Expedition to cross all of of southern Italy. Going where others haven't, dealing with volcanoes and engorging ourselves with amazing food.
Morocco is what we have set our azimuth on for 2017 and preparations are well under way. Before we ramble on we're sure visiting our website will give a more focused view on what we do, and what we want to give back to the community.

Back to us. We have two main needs, or pots, to fill.
The first being our vehicle. A 1998 Galloper who's got gravel in her guts. Literally. She needs caring love and attention along with a few bits and bobs to protect her and protect us. Communications, mechanical and navigational aspects are all lacking. We are convinced a rooftop tent is necessary due to expected cold weather and uneven ground along with other vehicle specific upgrades. If you do so wish to help us out we will be infinitely grateful!!
The second is expedition specific. Food, Fuel and Funds. With over ten thousand kilometres expected to be driven during the expedition and possible breakdowns along the way we are slowly putting together a budget for the 2017 expedition. Fuel and reliability is our main concern as Alberto can survive on rocks and Filippo never eats; just sleeps. Pietro on the other hand.....
We feel guilty of expecting money from you, but we're sucking up our pride and hoping the community of fellow explorers might want to help us out. If you do, well, you're simply amazing and we will do everything we can to give back to you!
