    Again camera lies.. Perched here while the guys clear the ruts and rocks ahead.. can't put the stand down.
    Jammed up again the tree to stop the bike running away down the hill.. 3 goes to get traction again after getting back on the bike..

    That was a tough ride. So much dust.
    Coughed for two days.

    Not looking forward to the fast approaching hot season. 7 am starts and finish by 2 or 3 latest.
