Hey All,

I have just posted a video of my time in Senegal - which shaped up to be the Africa I have been dreaming of - colorful, friendly people, and street parties!

^^ HAHA

I told a couple that I did a loan for about your website. They were nomads and did a 18 month trek around the US and Mexico. Stopped for a year bought a small place now sold it and now they are back out there doing it again. Cool stories they had, just like you do.

Hey all,

Thanks to my useless timing, it now rains every single day for between 8 and 10 hours.
It's the hardest rain I have ever seen in my life, and is usually acomanied by a massive thunder and lightning storm.
More than a few times the boom of thunder is so close it rattles the Jeep while I am asleep upstairs....

Monsoon season has real meaning there. Beautiful country.

So now that you've been at it for a while, any comments on how your setup in the Jeep is working out? Anything you wish you had done, or wished you didn't do?

I have driven into African country #5, Guinea-Bissau.

Amazingly, the bribery games are identical to my one day crossing of Honduras a few years back.

Hey Jeepers,

I have finally written up an article on the Recovery Gear, Tools and Spares I am carrying for two years around Africa.

Find the article at JPFREEK.COM here: Recovery, Tools & Spares for 2 years in Africa - JPFreek

What would you bring that I don't have?
What would you leave behind?

Weren't you supposed to be staked to an anthill and left to die, or something by now?0:) it sounds like a great trip, and am glad I get to live vicariously through you.
I think he already joined Boka Haraim. That gets him a free pass everywhere.

But ya, it's very cool to watch his trip move along.

Hey All,

I'm exploring the North of Guinea and absolutely loving it.

Small jungle tracks that lead to massive waterfalls are becoming my favorite thing!

Now that looks like Africa. What kind of wildlife do you see there?

Make sure you post pics of the falls on your site or here.

Stay safe.
Thanks!
So far I have seen monkeys, Chimpanzees, warthogs, vultures and hippos.
Nothing "big" yet, most of those have been hunted to extinction in West Africa. The big wildlife will all be when I get to Southern and eastern Africa.

Here are the falls I got to: https://www.instagram.com/p/BOX_XhwjQIQ/?taken-by=theroadchoseme
