There were lots of big puddles where I had to walk through the bush to get around them.

After a while I turned off the main trail, to take the trail to Collie. It's 16kms from the main trail.

They were well signposted. One was called Dead Cat Track. It went past the pet cemetery. I didn't take this track.

I made it.

I pitched my tent in the caravan park. Then I went to the shops to buy supplies. 

One elderly couple asked me a few questions about my ride. Then they invited me to stay at their house. How very kind. Warms my heart.
