The Things They Carried

Just starting to gather up  the spares, tools and kit we’ll take with us, we’ll take more to Morocco to increase the operating weight of the car and to make us more comfortable en route.  There’s a constant tension between taking parts to repair breakdowns while always trying to minimise the weight carried in the car.  We need to take hard to source parts with us but rely on our ingenuity to get parts that are more likely to be found locally.  Hence we wouldn’t take a spare battery (we did consider a two battery set up for the car but resolved to fit one big one instead) but we will take a spare alternator as, although we would be almost certainly able to find one locally, we would be unlikely to get one to fit in the confined space available.
