Then it occurred to me that Dakar is just a little bit farther down the road. Only thing is I'd have to traverse through either Algeria, Western Sahara, and Mauritania. Any thoughts?
Hey Denis,
I asked around and it sounds like the best bet these days is running the coast down through Western Sahara and Mauritania. Inland seems to be a lot more sketchy. I'd check the Hubb to see who's traveling those routes as you get closer to your trip and see if it's getting better or worse.
