After driving around 500 miles through the night we made it to Bahareya Oasis, grabbed three hours of sleep, and woke to find our support Iveco truck from Siag Travel waiting for us. This beast would carry a ton of fuel, a ton of water, and a ton of food for the next two weeks as we crossed the desert with no other support. These rigs are used in the Dakar races and are well suited for desert travel despite their heft. Siag Travel is the preeminent desert travel company, and Marai has worked with them for years. Even at that, the scope and distance of our expedition had never been done.
