    I think Tilpa is about as close to there they, but anyway whoever it is hope he's ok.

    Is it the bottom bolts or top both bolts or both ?.
    Anyway keep safe till the end don't push it, there seems to be a few guys just falling short of finishing with injuries.

    Looks like FB is putting in a big day, he's just ridden past Drake and looks like he's heading for urbenville or a camp spot before there maybe ?

    Urbenville pub was full tonight, so we got a room at the woodenbong pub for the night.
    Nice easy 180km stroll to the finish tomorrow. Not bad considering we were plodding along and had a day and a half off up in Grawin at the start of the trip.
    Managed to snap my 4th upper subframe bolt today.
    Before you ask.... I'm 90kg and not carrying to much weight on the bike( maybe 25kg max).
    The rally raid bolts snapped so I'm having to use mild steel bolts to replace them. Will be using high tensile next time for sure. The only saving grace about using the rally raid part is that if the bolt shears you can unscrew both ends then replace the bolt.
    I happened to bring a original bolt along as a spare but that Broke off in the thread and had to go to a bike shop for them to remove it.
    Andrew got this 4th rear puncher today.
    Between punchers and subframe bolts, I think we have the fixing routine down pat....

    Great to see you crossed the finish line today, looking forward to hearing about your issues and the adventure, well done, should be some good pics I reckon.
