Then the road got really gnarly. Not too much sand thank goodness but lots of loose crap and some very challenging dry water crossings with huge ruts and sandy banks to climb. Dick claims to have pushed Helga up the bank but I think he was only puffing because he's unfit.
We were in real high spirits when we reached the end of the road and the "Road Closed" sign at the other end. We were also hot, smelly and knackered. We went to the campground and put up the tents and then headed for the pub. A very gentle night was enjoyed with the locals giving us a hard time but all good fun. Once again in bed early for an early start.
