Day 254 | near Gecko siding Millstream Chichester NP: on a brand new sealed road no one knows has been built

81 km | Heading west total: 11,653 km

So begins the first day of the next big leg of my journey.

I’m leaving the coast which I have basically followed from Darwin and am heading inland.

I estimate I am about 6 weeks later than would be advisable to avoid the nasty heat and humidity. I gotta get pedalling to get south asap.

Summer is on the way and the summer here is an inferno. It gets to 50°C regularly I’m informed.

I’m outta here.
