Things getting better !
- Or ?
After a little bit restless night tenting at the campingground in Stawa w. people screaming and dogs barking its finally beginning to turn :-)
We had a very enjoyable run on the contry roads, passing through the small villages. The LifePilot systen began to work again as we got the right connection (it has been a big worry to me not having the max. documentation - atleast here in europe - other places we may need the photo and logbook backup). Also Polish tv found us and did an interview early on the stage.
But the need for re-routing is definately there. We are not allowed to run on the main roads by the police and thus running to Krakow/Central Poland isnt an realistic option as its mainly highways to there !
Sarah and I had a map-meeting in the evening (found a good hotel so wecould pland and re-focus the run again after difficulties). We plan to run towards the Czeck Republic via: Malcyce (near Oder river and Legnica), Swidnica, Zabkowice Sl. and towards the border between Stronie Sl (P.) and Hanusovice (Cz.) wich we hope to reach the 9. September.
By the way Sarah has been a fantastic runner and a very positiv imput in coping w. the problems !! :-) She has shined when facing trouble - and that is more than anyone can expect:-)
PS: my last pair of glasses broke late this evening (they have been hanging on' for a while!) so that is still a huge difficulty as I cant see without (-8,5 !).
