You would be dealing with driving through harsh terrain and climate, driving and camping in very dangerous areas, camping with no protection for yourself from nature, but your biggest concern is carbon emissions. If this is serious and not a joke, then your chances of being alive by the end of this trip are slim.

I would think the chances of being dead are pretty slim

Where does electricity come from? We have not yet reached all natural electric, much still comes from burning fossil fuels.


You really are heading to a Darwin award. Camping in dangerous territory, I do not belive you are prepared.Your car will be a magnet for thieves at a minimum.

I have solar panels on my roof and a car charger at home. All ecotricity charging points have electricity from renewable energy. Maybe to lock the car with an alarm would be helpful?

Has there even been discussion of overcoming the two significant obstacles raised at the very beginning of this ridiculous thread? (That being gaining the necessary visas as well as finding a rental company that would allow their vehicle to be driven to Kenya)

Or is the OP just planning on ignoring those very likely issues?

A car alarm just tells the group of teenage militiamen with AK-47s where to find you. They’ll find it quite useful for that

Of course they will not be ignored.
