day 14 - hurry hurry chicken curry
After a stellar night the Lone Galloper Overland crew is happy to say that we got the car out! It took quite some time: we some of the gear from the truck so to shed some weight. The Galloper is a fat girl herself and we came in weighing just over the three metric tons mark.
The sand wasn't as hard packed as we liked and had to "step" it with stones that were lying around. As soon as the tires caught more consistent sand we reloaded the gear we had taken out and went for the hill ascent. The Gallopers' locking diff's took care of the ascent, clocked in at 21°, without breaking a sweat. Ooh the fine line between traction and momentum. Alberto noted to himself that we will have to get a set of MaxTax ourselves next time around.
Back on the road we set our bearings on Igoumenitsa and made an assault on the road ahead to make it time to our ferry to Corfù island; and apart some minor incidents we got there in time...for the last ferry of the day.
As you read we are in Corfù having dinner. We rented out two scooters and an ATV. Alberto went for the ATV 'cos he thought we were going to find some beaches...oh was he in for a surprise. They're fun to drive... for the first 10 minutes.
