Day 20 – Pushing Hard

Another hot day with a headwind for most of the day.

Jack went hard for the first half of the day and we’d clocked up 100 kms by lunch.

Tons Of Wildlife…….Including A Fox

Tons of wildlife kept us company with emus, kangaroos and goats a-plenty.  We even had a fox run across the road just 20 metres in front of us.

David Summers was up front of the group when a large goat, with horns, stood in the middle of the road and tried to stare him down.  In heroic fashion he shouted at it and off it ran.

We went beyond what we expected with a big 170 km day to put us ahead of schedule.  Another night of desert camping at Baden Park, a rest area on the highway.

We’re both getting pretty exhausted and 7 pm is now considered a late night!

Ahead of schedule??? Well done!! Watch out for that wildlife that can just run at you, especially the emus – they are a bit dumb and just run full bore for anything that moves, especially bus bullbars!! Good to see you eating m and m’s Jack, keep up the energy.Good to see that you have some riding buddies to keep you company.Two thirds of the way and counting. All our love Juls and family x
