So why then is this only "almost" as good as it gets - well we haven't made it yet have we!
The drama of this day began the night before - especially for me. Matt (Neville's son) joined the support crew today
We aimed for a 6:30am start. We left at 7:00am (as usual). The day couldn't have gone better. We executed our plan to perfection. The riding was steady without being aggressive and we managed to average 25.4 km/h for the day. Our stops were regular and we kept protecting each other sharing the work load. We are actually getting good at this!
Of note today was Daniel's elevation into the Fermented Wind club. This was due to "outstanding" output during the day. He proudly joins Tom and Jeff in the club. There are a few others vying for entry to the club.
Tomorrow we are hoping to make good use once again of what should be favourable conditions. We are hoping to get past Kalgera in the Northern Territory. This will help enormously with reducing our distance on Friday when we are expecting 35 degrees and 30 km/h winds from the North West.
There is light at the end of the tunnel - I hope it's not a Road Train coming the other way.
Doubtful internet access over the next few days depending on where we end up. Keep checking, I will post when I can.
