There are several RRs about Morocco on ADV. Both Pyndon and Walter Colebatch have done them - in the past couple of years. IIRC, Pyndon was originally going to head into one of the countries you mention and had to abort.

Walter's from 2011:

Then it occurred to me that Dakar is just a little bit farther down the road. Only thing is I'd have to traverse through either Algeria, Western Sahara, and Mauritania. Any thoughts?
