... with my trek shoes anywhere but the bush! This morning I gave it a go with the sandals, though I hadn't walked with the pack weight on in them - blitzed 11 km in 1 hr 45 mins. Doesn't make me like it anymore but I can now get over this stuff without going so damned slow.
So quick and easy with only one truck passing us on the road in the dark made for quick movement down the road and as the birds started to wake, we looked to the east and there was the sun coming over ...

Some asides regarding the trip so far. We spend each night tied up to a dock. Night traffic on the river is not allowed. Not a problem as far as we are concerned. The river is not that long so we never have far to go the next day.
Do you know where cork comes from? Turns out it is the bark of a local tree. After 25 years you can peel off the bark from the cork tree and process it for all sorts of things. We have seen hats, belts, wallets, and purses made ...
