Day 114 | broken down in Tilmouth: no, not the best start

82 km | Heading west total: 4,749 km

A broken spoke.

A missing tool. I lent it to that German cyclist back in Portland. Didn’t get that cassette remover back.

Suddenly after 10 km on the dirt road the expedition has ground to a stop. I can’t really proceed without the ability to fix spokes with another 825 km of rugged dirt road with no major settlements to get to Halls Creek. It’s too small to have a bike shop so it would be Kunnanurra before I could get something fixed.

I’m hitching back to Alice tomorrow.
