I thought that I would share with you this tour in development. Patrick Trahan was a contact that I made somewhere on Facebook last year and he did say that “at some point our paths would cross”. Well, he jumped at the opportunity to help guide a 4×4 tour for my filmmaker’s journey into Morocco…
These entries will be brief and more of a dialogue between two people – Me and Pat – as we prepare for Morocco… To put this in perspective – we just started last week and I leave next wednesday. Circumstance of timing, $$ and a little story about a certain Dakar racer, Mark Miller. Damn him – I will only catch him at the start line at the 2009 Dakar Rally in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 2 steps behind, but finding cool stories in the dust.
One story is about Fossils in Morocco… huh? What does THAT have to do with the Dakar Rally? Everything…
