Day 158 (Australia – Dampierland)

I had a busy day riding around town, my first stop being the post office. To Kununurra I posted a package containing items I don’t need on the Gibb River Road. To Perth I posted my trailer system – it has been invaluable in allowing me extra freedom in the northwest but I think it would become too much of a burden on the Gibb and I should be able to survive without it from here on. I came away from the post office with one of the food packages I had prepared back in Perth. I was relieved to find it as I sent it, without the addition of mould. After sorting out my gear I got a thorough tour of town as I shopped for miscellaneous supplies at various shops, including the supermarket, hardware, pharmacy, Totally-Work-Wear and a sports store.

    I am 158 days late to the party. But here I am looking forward to see how this adventure turns out.. As an office bound, responsibility full, middle aged man and cyclist following along actually means cheering for the alternative.

      Thanks Andrew ☺ One thing I’ve learned during my trip is that it is never too late to have a cycling adventure. I have met people cycling around Australia who are in their seventies! Glad to have you along for the ride. I’m also looking forward to seeing how this adventure turns out!
