This challenge started out as Solo Mission Impossible because with a three-year max limit, I could not possibly walk the equivalent of all the way around Africa.
But I’ve had to rename it, because I’m still just 4 countries in, and already adding pedaling has allowed me to pass the pace marker.
That means that God willing and barring unforeseen circumstances (and yes that’s quite the large set of caveats), I could actually cover this distance!
As you can see, my route will have me (relatively) shortly skirting the border of The Gambia and bypassing Guinea-Bissau entirely.
(Also I am digging up Senegalese recipes before I “leave” that country.)
One day, one step at a time!
