“The toughest day on the itinerary. 87kms in the desert, off roading and on big hill to finish.its been 38 degrees today.
We did 60 kms before lunch and then had a hill to finish the day, not just a hill, a mountain! Monkey mountain. Its a 3km stretch of climbing hair pin bends up a mountain – it was bloody tough but managed to make it to the top – this was partly because the mountain is swarming with unfriendly monkeys that want to pinch your water bottles.
Getting to the top has to be one of my most rewarding achievements and I cried all the way down with relief! Absolutely loved it and after today’s route know I can do anything. Camping again tonight in the mountains. Curry again….
Yesterday was tough, we all pushed it too much finishing 3rd for the day but was shaking all over by the end. Went to a school and handed out uniforms, pens and books. I sat with the kids and they thought my name was money either that or they just wanted me to give them some, wishful thinking.
We have experienced more boisterous kids, I have been slapped twice but we have taken to slamming on the breaks and running for them and they run off scared.
Scenery is unbelievable! The colours are fantastic. Its easy from here, 60km tomorrow and 40km on the last day.
Already filled one memory card so be prepared for the slideshow!
