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

Yup, another big day of driving (and therefore not much of note to talk about).

The bitumen started again in Laura, so roughly the second half of the day was nice smooth driving.

Any excuse was a good excuse to pull over for a quick break from driving. I wasn’t feeling great today – a little nauseous, cold, sore etc. Already had a cup of concrete and aggregate, just waiting for it to harden me the you-know-what up.

20130608_RCH_3316I couldn’t help but think these little ant nests looked like small mounds of poop. Delirious from fever, surely.

Early night – BBQ chicken and salad for dinner, followed by a couple of episodes of Lost (I wish I could forget everything that happened…).

Also, temperatures have dropped again – might almost be able to sleep with a blanket tonight! (beats the sweaty nights in The Cape.)
