On next morning I found a family on Caravan Park. They have 3 bicycles and I share with them 2 tubes. I need to rid of most of my stuff. I put my dirty clothes in rubbish. Some pieces put inside dirty tent. I have unpacked nuts and bottle of water. I gave it to couple on bikes. They travel to East.

Chapter 9. Slow motion, headwind again

28th  April. I started my day at 5-15. I cycled in the dark. My target was to reach Cocklebiddy that morning. I met a sunrise on 20km to roadhouse. There was a turn to Bird observation there but it means another 35km so I skipped it.This morning I was thinking about all my family. I missed them all.

10km to Cocklediddy a wind changed to strong western. I reached a roadhouse and decided to eat some soup. But there were only burgers on the menu. Other dishes were available from 5pm only. So I bought a coffee milk to prepare museli.

Chapter 8. Riding Western Australia

I cycled another 12km to Eucla – a small city. But it is on map only because they have a police station and a telegraph. A restaurant on a gas station offered less food than the Border Village. I used this place to make a call to Ivan and report to him that I’m ok and now continue my travel in the West.

Chapter 7. Nullarbor National Park 187 km

I’ve entered Nullarbor. All night I was laid in tent and felt pain in legs and knees. Every turn brought me an uncomfortable feeling in my leg’s muscles.

In the morning I did not wait until some member of the Head of Bight staff would come up to me and left this beautiful place at 7 am. After 15 km I arrived at Nullarbor roadhouse and asked for soup in a cafe. They had chicken and vegies soup. I also wanted to buy a bottle of Cola, but only Diet Cola was available. It not my choice because it does not contain any sugar.
