I had another small tailwind today. I love tailwinds!

The traffic was friendly again. I had one nervous moment when an oncoming road train was being overtaken by a truck. I was lucky there was a good shoulder on this section of road.

I arrived early at Mathison rest area. There are shaded tables here and water tanks.

Tomorrow will be a big day. I contemplated riding a bit further today except the shaded tables were too nice to leave.

I'll have to get up early tomorrow to make up for my easy day today.

I met a kind couple who invited me into their caravan for a beer and a chat.

Meet Jackie and Trevor.
