Flag of Sierra Leone  , Northern Province,
Saturday, December 29, 2012

28th December Badly bitten by the ants again. Drove all day on reasonable roads. 1km into our 100km of bad roads to the border we broke a spring & had to fix it. Bushcamped by the side of the road, in the jungle.
29th December Continued on the rough dirt road, with branches & insects being broken/brushed into the truck all the way.  We had to pull a 4x4 out of a ditch (they'd been in it for 12 hours!) - it had a broken drive shaft. We broke a bridge crossing it. The last 14 kms to the border took 4 hours. We crossed into Guinea (Guinean Francs), and bushcamped by the Guinean immigration office. It is a rarely used border crossing - in 2010 only 63 people left Sierra Leone over it - 2 Irish, the rest Nigerian, Guinean or Sierra Leonan.
