... way over. Without a shoulder to ride on, it can be a challenge. I turned 40 the day before our last ride before our rest day in Katherine. While I didn't expect much, the two Frenchman bought champagne and wine for me and few others that night. They also got he group to sing happy birthday. It really made my day special. It was a fun night but I had way too much to drink. I think that was their plan!!! :) They let me draft on them during our ride the next day as I ...

We knew we would be in Katherine around lunchtime so I didn't worry about making lunches or putting anything in the ecopot for dinner - a real morning ...

The campsite at the entrance has an interesting visitor centre with records from the flying doctor, including one about the death of a baby which is very moving, and some very sad letters from the 1890s, one writing home to say he wad dying.
