It is great to have got day one out the way.
It is a great feeling to have got day one out the way. There is so much angst surrounding the start and now we are into it. We will establish our routines and get into the grind of riding every day. The new route into the Hella Hella Hell run was OK. We opted to stay dry and took a slightly longer route but didn't lose too much time at all. There was a lot of walking but we still made good time to McKenzie where we wolfed down toasted sammies, emptied our boxes into our bags (yay messages from family) and headed into the disappearing sunlight 40 mins later. Doug gashed his tyre which lost us some time but we made it here just fine. Another big day tomorrow (there are no easy days) Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless device
