He planned for many days and took the most optimised route where he could take the car and paid a local driver to take him to Bir Tawil. The route falls under Egyptian military and requires permission as it is an international border. Due to high terrorist activities, the military has a shoot at sight order.
He was allowed entry into the area on three conditions, no photos of military areas (which is almost everything), to be back in the single day and not to carry any valuables.
On reaching Bir Tawil he planted his Flag and declared his Kingdom KoD
