Are you stalking me..!?!

Yep... 287km west of Kingoonya..

Further than id planned to get today, and maybe a little early.. but you know in soft rutted sand when you've had enough for the day.. any more and ya gonna start having to pick up the bike..

Don't imagine that'd be fun with all the extra fuel n water on board...

Yeah got a bit of a roll on towards the end

Got off the Telstra cut and scooted along the very edge of the rail line..

Telstra track was just rocks, pot holes, dried out mud ruts and yep, plenty of bulldust..

Contemptated pulling the pin for while there.. just complete rubbish..

But then got me scoot on and the last 20 km to Cook just rolled by..

Fairly good run out her to Denman too.. but heading into the sun shut things down..

Anyway, teas been had (black lentil curry with wild mushroom cous cous )

Might be bed time... Should clear Forrest tomorrow.. hopefully somewhere closer to Loongana....

254 kms today......
