“It’s been very challenging so far and I’m only 1 twefth of the way. Al and I waded thru many swamps over the first 2 hours and only covered 9 km.
The wind has been about 30 km/h and in my face the whole way. If that wasn’t enough, they seem to have graded every F—–n road.
I am stopped for some food at Inglis and hope the wind will die down in the evening. Oh yeah, that’s the other thing. It’s hot.”
