14:54 Dublin Time:
Only a little bit of news to tell on this latest update. I received another phone call 15 minutes ago; and the convoy is just entering the Sinai desert. I am told that the mobile phone signals are not that great until they get closer to Rafah. The plan, so far, remains the same. They are still planning to travel directly to the border, no stopping overnight. But, that could change depending on how late it gets. Oh, I just got a text message as I was typing this post, it says "200km to Rafah" so that's the latest.
Note to self: Move house before the phone bill arrives LOL
