Note to new readers: I am travelling with my bike who’s name is Banjo. I often refer to ‘we’ meaning Banjo and I. ‘We’ have an amazing support team of family, friends, sponsors and folk we meet each day. But it’s still up to ‘us’ to face the challenge and tackle each day one peddle at a time.
It’s 10pm on Wednesday the 1 September 2021
Today was such a nuts down and up day. I’m not going to try and find the words express the experience. It’s late and I’m ready to crawl into my donger bed!!! I’ve spent the last hours updating my posts with media which is awesome. I’ve spoken to Dawn and they’re safe and camped at Chinchilla which is perfect. I’m clean and the boy is all packed and ready for us to head off for Bedourie in the morning. Yay!!! So tonight for a change I’m going to share the videos of the day. I’ve just checked them out and feel they capture the day better than words can!!! All I do want to say is Thank you Mary Ellen. Mary Ellen is the owner manager of Boulia Caravan Park. It’s a special touch of paradise as is her kindness and generosity. All the best for you and your family. Night and talk soon xx
