Heading for Morocco

sunny 20 °C

After a good night sleep in Hotel Las Camelias, Sotogrande, we left around 8 to carch the ferry to Morocco. We should arrive there in about 45 min.
Then we'll take the alternative route to Fes, which means the "hard" route. Yes, we have a lot of faith in our bus.
Hopefully we can give you a positive update tonight from the idyllic town Fes.

Day 3 Clutch update!

overcast 17 °C

Dear all,
After a 26 hrs drive, taking terms in sleeping, driving and sleep-driving... We did not only catch up after a late start yesterday and a longer route, also we were almost sure of a no.1 finish in Gibraltar (I know it isn't that kind of competition..... But still !) Nevertheless we (i.e. Dennis!) managed to ..ck-up the gear-box, blocked-up completely, no oil.... After spending hours waiting for people to find us a replacement gear-box (vw's seem to be rare in spain) we ended up with no option but to force the old box into movement and fill it up with gear-oil again. As the old bus was kangeroo-skipping away at first, sounding very unhappy, we let her spinn her wheels with the rear-end jacked up high in the air.... This seems to have done the job for now as we are very comfortably rolling down the last bit of spanish motor-way... After a very frustrating afternoon!
Anyway, problem solved for the time-being although we seriously need to consider changing the oil-seal between gear-box and clutch-housing as we believe that this is causing a dry gear-box, wet clutch and messing up our day! Will be continued ....

Ouders,schoonouders en een ieder die heeft bijgedragen aan de 'overlevingspaketten' nogmaals dank. De overvloedige voorraad weerhoud ons er echter niet van om zo even de Ramblas op te rijden voor heerlijke tapas gerechten.... Nog 90km!
(heidi, lekkere peren!!)
