Whilst I was in town yesterday, something, I suspect it was a tree monitor lizard as they were around, tore a hole in the fly mesh of the tent. Bugga!
Left at 8.10.
Temperature was very pleasant. Overcast until about 12, even had a bit of drizzle. Humidity still high.
Some big Hills to climb.
Had a break around 10:30 am.
Compared to the section above Black Mountain, this area has very few birds which makes it very quiet whilst walking.
Plenty of butterflies here, but then, there were up there as well, although down here they seemed more relaxed, may be something to do with a lesser fear of being eaten on the wing......
Made it to Whitehead Creek, which made for a 15 Km day.
Towed, as opposed to pushed, the MW today. I still struggle with balance but it seemed better today.
Thank God for the drag brake on the downhills! Its very frustrating, I labour up the hills at about 3 KPH and then have to use the drag brake on the downhills and so only descend at 3 KPH as well, it drives me nuts!!!!
I’m in a very small clearing for the camp but the creek is delightful.
Will try for Ayton tomorrow.
Daily distance. 15.1
Total distance. 48.8
Daily altitude gain. Shitloads!
