DAY 5

- on Tuesday, 30 May 2017.

Day 5.

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 !!
