Since we were prohibited to travel at night due to military restrictions, we camped our first true desert dune night in the Western Desert. We were staged to drive 60 more miles south toward the Sudanese border, before heading west into the sands of the Sahara. Our travels would take us through the most inhospitable yet ruggedly beautiful terrain imaginable, in vehicles just short of antiques. That’s a true DED Tour, and with 1,500 miles to go and a week of sand left, the trip was only beginning.
