The Hansons are back from their Egyptian expedition with the Explorers Club flag-- and will (both Roseann and Jonathan I hope) be writing something here.


"It was fantastic. Probably the most challenging driving I've had over such an extended journey. Many difficult climbs to cross dune chains, then 60mph blasts across huge rolling sand sheets. Our guide very, very nearly capsized his Land Cruiser on a loose side slope the first day out. Stuck fast with a dicey recovery - we anchored his vehicle with a line to the roof rack to keep it from going over as we pulled it out...

"And we felt like rock stars the entire trip. People kept coming up to us and thanking us for coming, shaking our hands, some nearly in tears."
