Still amazed you did this trip solo... Just the Liberian border is notorious for bandits of all kinds. road blocks/ armed guys popping out of the forest and here is a nice occasion to kidnap a white guy for a ransom. Lived 12 years in Ivory Coast and definitely have fond memories but that region you rode through is (really) "hot" (Tabou, San Pedro, Man, etc.).
Thanks for sharing your story, very inspiring trip!
