Demonic corrugations-Expedition Dust day 39

My name is Brando Yelavich. I’m currently cycling self supported from the most western point to the most eastern cape across the centre of Australia to lead by example and empower others to take care of their own mental wellbeing. The big day yesterday resulted in a late night, so this morning we both felt a little rusty and agreed on a late start. I was so happy when I got up and found the wind was blowing from hard from the northwest, that was going to be a tail wind! I could hardly believe it. Dylan has been carrying two instant cappuccinos and they came out today, it was all foamy and sweet because I added a tube of condensed milk too! With the morning light I could see the bore and hand pump across from our tent. It was so nice to not have to worry at all about water just for the day. While I cooked my breakfast I set up the satellite phone and sent a few emails, the first was to dad to find out if Burley my trailer sponsor is going to send me a spare trailer part. He told me they are already on the way! I felt so relieved and grateful. The army guys from yesterday actually patched the crack with some putty that’s ment to be as strong as metal (bloody witchcraft) so hopefully it will hold together a few more days. The only problem with it in its current condition, is it’s bent and it pulls the bike to the right constantly. The only way to fix it properly is to replace it. I also made a call to Ngaio. We chatted about when Ain and Ben the cinematographers are going to meet up with me. They are coming to the desert to capture extra content for the film that we are creating about this adventure! I can’t wait for them to get here they are awesome guys and great at what they do.

It was 11:30 when we set
