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!

Cool updates, Dan!

I can't remember if I asked you before, is your Jeep powered by a diesel engine or is it a gas engine, I think I heard references to both so I was never sure what is it.

Rock on and have fun, be safe!

I built a Jeep with a diesel engine, but it blew up and almost derailed the whole thing.

So the one I have now is a completely stock 2011 Rubicon drivetrain - 3.8L gas engine, 6 speed, 4.10 gears, lockers.

It's been running great!

Thanks man, I hope you have an awesome one too !

I've done lots of little things to the Jeep over the last weeks, and have a few more things on the TODO list.
I'll be writing about it all with tons of photos in the coming weeks, lots of "Jeep Stuff" posts coming on my website!

Hi All,

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.

Hi All,

The West African mud pits have begun!
This is a highway in Guinea in the North from Koundára to Labé. National Route something something. The Chinese were building a section of it, this is a bit they hadn't got to yet.
The trucks had been stuck there for days, I walked right through it.

It's a video - embedding it seems to be too hard.

Check it out here on Instagram: http://instagr.am/p/BPfgRyXjh7P/ or here on Facebook:

Hi Everyone,

I have driven into Mali, Africa country number 7!

Read the whole story of the border crossing here: http://theroadchoseme.com/into-mali


I also just posted this video of crossing a swing bridge it Guinea over a swollen river.
What do you think, would you mess around on this bridge?

I'm checking out Sibi, a beautiful town in Southern Mali.

Obviously I'm keeping up to date on the safety situation in Mali, and talking to lots and lots of people about the reality on the ground.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to go North to the Doggone Country due to all the fighting there, the Mali military will actually stop me if I even try.

Hi All,

I have driven from Mali into Ivory Coast, African country number eight!

Read all about the very stern bribery attempt here: http://theroadchoseme.com/into-ivory-coast

Here's the international border:

I just paid the biggest bribe of my life.

I'm really not happy about it, though I was rattled and I'm happy to still be in possession of the Jeep.
