Wow feels like an understatement to describe Guinea, for sure!!
I'm loving every second of exploring Guinea, though my time is coming to a close!

Which way do you guys think I should go next? North to Mali, or continue around the coast to Sierra Leon?
I'm on the fence.
Found this thread this morning (New Jeep Owner of 4 months and new to this forum for about a week) and just read the whole thing from day 1, visited your site (theroadchoseme.com) and read a few pages w/the threads. All I can say is wow.... At first when I was reading the Diesel build, I was excited to see it come to life. When it died, I was a little bummed out to see it go away. Then, when I saw it come back to life, I wanted to read all about it. I haven't watched the videos yet or been through all your website but will in my spare time in the evenings.
It's pretty cool to read and see what you are living regardless of you doing it in a Jeep or not. I think that most of us would love to be the passenger in your rig or be following you with our own rigs in a small convoy. I think most would be very pleased just to cross the US (or Canada for me) in such a wilderness trek.
I must admit, in the beginning, even I with no knowledge of Africa, I was worried because of all we hear about Africa, death/disease/pirates etc... Now after reading your journey, not that it seems easy or a 100% safe and all good, but... it seems quite enjoyable and beautiful to be traveling to those remote destinations... Hell, I think most places you visited are probably much safer than most bad parts of Detroit and most good ones after dark... LOL
I'm enjoying your write-ups and love the pictures. I especially like the picture of the Tourisme Office in Mali with the number of tourists visiting there each year.
I wish you luck, health and safety and will keep reading your adventures as you post them. Thanks for sharing them with us...
