Had a rest from the trail today.
Hitched into Cooktown, got a lift very easily.
Updated the blog, only just got it done due to phone battery going flat. Once away from my solar panel, keeping my phone charged is a real hassle.
Found a freebie power source to get enough charge to do some research into electrifying the wheel. May have a solution in a unit called the Add E. It’s 24 Volts which means charging with a solar panel is possible.
Off loaded 6 Kg at the post office. sO, Including the food I offloaded yesterday, that’s a total of 17 Kg so far this week. I could get my panna camera sent over, but I’m sure as shit not going to yet!
Bought a you beaut straw hat, nice and light, will find out if it’s nice and cool tomorrow! Bit of a pity I cut vent holes in the Akubra, still, that’s life.
Didn’t bother with the hospital, woke up feeling pretty good, still do. Maybe I just had a tummy bug.
Bought Salami and fruit.
Walked to the outskirts of town and got a lift with the same guy that I got a lift in with! Life is easy! Took about 20 minutes to get into town........ That’s two zero minutes, not four days........
Had a pub dinner of Chicken Kiev, forgot to take a pic for Instagram, Soorrryy! ;) but hey, it was yummy !!
