Day 7 - Nullarbor to Cocklebiddy

Today we crossed the official part of the Nullarbor Plain (which really isn't all that long - the official treeless part anyway). The sign says "The Western End of The Nullarbor Plain"...only you can't see it very well cos it was yet again STUPID o'clock in the morning, which means the weather isn't always so nice!

We're in the home state! That's right, we crossed the SA/WA Border....and here's the proof:

The journey so far:

And what's to come:

Today also marks the very first day Tristan has had a tailwind! Hurrah! So he certainly tried to make the most of it. It especially helped on that madly big hill at Madura Pass. Might I say, the support team were all very impressed with Tristan's mountain climbing abilities. He brags about it all the time, and today we saw the proof! Bragging allowed! Which also means you're allowed to wear that polka-dot 'king of the mountains' jersey now Tristan without us laughing at you ...much!
