Just a quick update I’m now in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. With little time to post as I am driving, planning or sleeping.
Tracy is an amazing car. Toyota really are something when it comes to reliability. Going like a dream not a problem anywhere.
The above shows some big issues to be overcome. Filling the tank from a jerry can on your own. Duck tape is fab.
Biggest problem I have had is fuel. Very bad in Sudan, without Nabigh I have no idea how I would have managed. Didn’t expect the same problem in Ethiopia but its as bad here. Pure luck I filled up about 10km outside Gonder but no fuel at around 5 stations I tried on the way in to Addis. I’m on empty now but with 60 litres in boot I only want to use in emergency. Plan today to get a tuk tuk and follow the driver to a petrol station with fuel. Wish me luck😉
Update: Sometimes necessity gives you a good idea! New tip take a taxi driver or tuk tuk driver with you. They know where to get fuel and can help in the queue chaos. Got the fuel I needed.😁
