We came to Boudnid but we had lost a day because of the accident.
And boudnid was not very pleasant.
So we decided to started the next trip scheduled which was Boudnid-merzouga.
But as we wanted to move a bit, we choose the road and enter the valley towards Erfoud.

We're heading towards Remlia now.
With these kinds of trails.

Cheesecake for Christian, even on the little Strom.
Aurel had difficulties at the beginning and got it after a while.
I still can't pass the sand.

Need confidence and some guts to turn the throttle.
2 things I'm short in.

See how at ease I am.
I'm a natural born sand biker.
You can try to have an idea how fast I'm driving with the pedestrian.....

At this point, we were not even half way to Zagora.
And I was already exhausted.
Fear, adrenaline, deshydratation.
burnt, flamed, kaputt, dead, "mat".

a guy followed us on a moped and we arrived at his small auberge.
time to rest for me. drink, water, coke.
And time to think.

How is the trail after this point ? As sandy as previously ?
Do I have to turn back as it's obvious this kinda things are far beyond my abilities ?
But if I turn back, I'll have to pass the sand again....
Do we split, Christian and Aurel continuing and myself going back to Merzouga ?

And the guy, Aziz I think, told us the trail will become easier, meaning no more sand, till the next oued, river, which it will be nearly impossible to pass.
Great..... that's what I needed to hear.

Hopefully, Im' not alone and Christian and Aurel was determined to give a try so they boosted me.
let's go then. Inch Allah.
