Monday 9th April 2012 – Kimba to Port Augusta.

Kimba to Port Augusta. 98 miles

Very windy right from first thing, which was ok as it was mainly behind me for the first 40 miles, but then I changed direction and so did the wind a bit and it was then blowing across me. Nearly came off a few times when the big road trains went past, they create such a back draft when they pass which is not normally that bad if your ready for it, but when there’s a strong wind blowing from the wrong direction and I don’t hear them coming it’s like a hurricane hitting you, quite often I would just slam on my brakes and stop I felt that uneasy and unstable, I was glad when today was over.

Got panda eyes from wind burn tonight!
