Day 27 – Gulf Savannah – Atherton to Croydon (420km)

I felt unwell yesterday, and it got worse in the evening – sore joints/muscles and chills/fever. Didn’t really know what was wrong, but felt like a stomach bug….

Day 26 – Back on Black (bitumen) – Coen to Atherton (520km)

Day 25 – Farewell, Cape York – Bamaga to Coen (480km)

One of the problems of camping under lush, lush rainforest canopy is it tends to block the sun, so my natural alarm clock (the sun) didn’t wake me…

Day Eighteen – Back on the Road Again

We’d heard from the mechanic that Deli-chan was ready for pickup last night, but instead of being good parents and fetching her straight away, we left her with…
