What you need is a more challenging testing ground.
The Sahara should do...
Presenting the Desert Road Rally, a seven-day 4x4 excursion across Morocco, taking reservations now for September and November departures.
This is basically like The Cannonball Run in the desert... well, except it’s not a race, and Dom DeLuise will not be making an appearance.
You’ll start in Ouarzazate, where you and your group will convene for a quick safety briefing. Then, you’ll travel by guided convoy along the fabled Paris-Dakar Rally route toward the first of two camps. Your bedroom: a white tent. Bathroom: en suite. Food: cooked fireside. Chance of a hot shower: strong.
Once off-road, you’ll caravan across unmarked desert tracks before being dispatched on the dunes with only a GPS, a two-way radio and your superior sense of direction. Your driving instructor’s a guy who managed logistics for the Paris-Dakar, so he’ll be the one teaching you how to desand a lug nut.
Then you’ll head to more far-flung places like the fortified village of Aït Benhaddou and eventually Marrakech, where the Road of a Thousand Kasbahs will be your route.
Because 1,001 kasbahs would be ridiculous.
