Elephants!!

Now that is Africa! Oh, and 10 feet behind you when you took that picture was a Lion..............you just didn't see him............cause he wasn't hungry.

Are Hippos' as big as I think they are? I think they're really big.

Nigeria. Just increase your speed as you go through.

There certainly are lions in that park...

Hippos are bigger than you think they are! I have seen many that weigh more than the Jeep! (6,000lbs)

After 12,800 miles through 12 countries, the time has come to enter Nigeria!



Starting tomorrow, follow a post every day on The Road Chose Me for the duration of my drive across Nigeria.

I am not certain I will have the ability to update here as I move through, so be sure to follow The Road Chose Me on Facebook so you don't miss an update, or check The road chose me every day!

(You can also sign up for email updates from The Road Chose Me - fill in the form on the top right of screen at The road chose me)



This is one I have been anxious about for many months.

Hi All,

Nigeria is rolling along.

I drove in, through an interesting Immigration post and did not get any paperwork for my Jeep at all.
I really hope that does not become a problem.....

On the first day I went through a lot of intense military checkpoints, and had to deal with prices magically going up...

There are daily updates on The Road Chose Me, and Facebook and Instagram. Don't miss a day as I drive across Nigeria!

Hi All,

Ahhhh, I got the website fixed, sorry it's been offline.
When in doubt, turn off code you wrote yourself

For those that missed it, the journey across Nigeria has been amazing, here are a few links to the pages you might not have seen while the site was down:

Moving North to the smallest border of the entire expedition:

(This is the international border!)


Nigeria Ends:

Crossing into Cameroon at a border where the Immigration officer had never seen a single foreigner in his three year posting!

Dan,
All that talk of Jolof rice got me wanting some. Found a few recipes online and a little of what I know. Absolutely delicious. I added a bit of heat with red pepper flakes. Response from the family was awesome. Wife said it was my best dish (kind of makes me think I don't cook good though) and my kids are asking for seconds. They are not picky eaters, but usually don't like the spicer dishes.

I can see where you would eat this every time you saw it.

Godspeed

That's awesome, I didn't even think of making my own. I always have tons of rice... hmmmm, maybe new favourite dinner (I am getting very, very tired of Pasta with whatever vegetables I have...)

...


I am roaming around the mountainous NorthWest of Cameroon, absolutely loving the lack of humidity and cool nights.
Slowing down is also really nice after the hectic pace of Nigeria.
