Day 3 - Erldunda to Kulgera 73kms. 35km SW headwind up 35+°c!
Carrying close to 20 litres of water. So weight about 60kg or 140kg w me into the wind. Nearly broke my mind, saved by 4 hrs of Pink Floyd Colin Turner (Shine On was the highlight) - was ready to quit when I got off the bike at the Kulgera pub (last in the NT or first) and in realised some mischievous drunk Irish devil riverdancer had swapped legs w me. I got some strange looks hobbling up to the bar. Stayed in air-conditioned room and using the pool. Having the rest day today I probably should have taken yesterday and getting my head starting straight for the next 190km stretch of nothing until the next water hole.
