With two bodies in the tent and a lot of moisture in the ground the condensation had built up on the tent and had started dripping onto my face, (Not the most pleasant way to wake up). I definitely didn’t want to stay in bed after that so getting up and going was pretty easy.
We both clambered out of the wet tent to find ice had formed on our bikes and gear, the temperature was officially freezing!
We made our breakfast and packed the tent away. Before we left I sat down and did an interview for my film, just talking about the first part of the expedition and how this life makes me feel! It was great to have Dylan their to prompt me to talk by asking me some questions I probably wouldn’t have asked myself. By 9:30 Dylan and I were out on the dirt road and had started heading off towards Wiluna.
The wind was ever so slightly blowing in my face, Dylan had charged off ahead to begin with and I knew that by the end of the day he would be tired. He will learn to pace himself if he wants to finish each day without breaking himself. The road was mostly straight with one small uphill section right in the middle of the day! With water I have worked out I drink 4.2L per day, so for this section to Wiluna I’m only carrying x2 10L for drinking and ten for if something goes wrong.
