Day 7 - Double Trouble

Met another rider - Anne Fitzpatrick - who asked: "Are you the crazy one doing it in 10 days!?" Good to see that word is getting around! We all agree that Anne is the crazier of the two though. Why? Because (a) she had the headwind, (b) she had a trailer to lug along with her and (c) we didn't see two cars driving along with her!

Trying to help Tristan out with his painful back. The strapping came off at the next stop! Obviously not very successful! Tristan may just have to stick with using the painkillers!

Among the many dead roos we've spotted along the road (curtesy of the road trains I am sure) we actually had a live roo sighting...and then many more as dusk approached!!!

Camping again tonight, with many a different bug, 40km east of Cocklebiddy
