Looks to be about 181 km to Forrest.. just put my last 10 litres of fuel in.. still had about 5 in the tank.. so I now got 15 litres to do 181 km..

Rattled out one of the center stand mount bolts yesterday... Bit o fence wire holding that all together now..

Wouldn't mind a chocolate milk...


Very as here.. even a fog maybe..

Yeah just over the border now... At Deakin..

Stopped for some warm water and to share a can of tuna with the flies..



Track is crap..

Jumped to the north side 30 or 40 km back to escape it..

Still littered w limestone but no mud ruts..

Not a Hell of a lot faster.. but less stressful

How many litres.... That's an interesting question...

I recon about 30...

Loaded up another 35 litres

Yeah he pumped a bit of air out of the old 44 gallon drum...

He did think he'd put in 38... But he dropped a few litres when I explaned the only way that was possible was if I had run our of fuel..

But no problem whatsoever gettin it....
