Day 57: Rest day

Today was a rest day in the small town of Marlborough. As you can tell from the sign, there isn't much here.

Master series.

This is a velocipede. It kinda looks like a bicycle.

Also known as a 'hand car'. On this one, you push and pull a lever to make it go. It was used to check the train track lines.

I'd never heard the word velocipede before. A bicycle is a velocipede too.

This was out front of the general store.

I bought some supplies as I think it might be a few days until I reach another shop.

I spent the day eating lots, watching movies on my phone, and charging all of my devices.

Today's ride: 11 km (7 miles)
Total: 2,708 km (1,682 miles)

Lednar De NallohYou're making great progress Vince. Hope you can get through the Kimberleys before August as they're hot, hot, hot.

Lednar De NallohTo Lednar De NallohAlso, how do you watch the movies, do you download them early or use data?

Vince McCarthyThank you Lednar. I am definitely struggling with the heat a bit already.

I just use data and watch free movies over the net. I'm not techno savvy enough to download them before the trip.
