I was farewelled from camp by a nice Australian couple. Then, about 25km into the day I was encouraged by a passing family who had also been camping at Silent Grove. They ask if I needed any food before handing me a scotch finger LOL. It took me about 2.5 hours to get the 19km back to the main drag. I am now several kilometres down Mornington Road. I had a wash in a creek to cool down, but it’s so hot that I am sweating again in my tent. The last couple of nights have remained hot for a few hours after sunset. I am quite sick of corrugated roads so a break at Mornington Wilderness Camp is going to be very welcome. If all goes well I will get there tomorrow.
