River crossing


It was a fairly tough day today. All dirt so we only made around 200kms, which is petty good going considering. We started the day with a 20km detour, as there was a river crossing which was a bit too deep. We got to the edge and a car was about to cross from the other side, so we waited to see how deep it was.

Deep but doable was my initial thought, though I wasn’t keen. Chip and Ken turned into Chip and Dale… After you
No no. After you.
Of please, I insist…..etc.

We spoke to the driver and he said to go back 2 miles and up over the mountain. It was just as easy for us to go back past the camp spot and take the other road, north then west rather than west then north. So we did!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
