Day number 4 in the tent since last indoor acc. Chance of hotel or even a private stay in 2 days of running. The last couple of days the supplies have been thin; running on a diet of buisquits, water & juice. Small cramps in hands and legs after the stages. The stroller loaded to 40kg to secure the watersituation.. Washing/bathing out of a spare bottle of water. Looking fwd. to the luxury of washing the clothes ;-)
On the up-side I met Mary who is recearching for a windmill company and occationally meet me and shares supply hints ! And Betty & Albert, an english-armenian couple whom I met at a 'waterhole' (service-station), has invited me for a stay 90km up the road :-)
The nature is Grand in its harshness & loneliness as I hope you can enjoy by beeing 'virtually here' via the live-gps pictures. But difficult conditions.
