Headwind! Bon Bon Rest Area to Ingomar Rest Area

The sunrise was stunning, but the wind that came up during the night intensified by morning and became a strong northerly - not exactly a maiden's dream!

We battled against the head wind for all of 76kms! It was very slow progress.

Sometimes we were down to almost a walking pace and had to take breaks every 5kms or so to recover and ease our behinds. It was like hauling our gear uphill all day.

Arrived at Ingomar Rest Area at about 4.00pm. It's on a barren ridge with absolutely no wind protection.

We put up the tent, prepared our sleeping gear and ate a quick cold meal before we lost the light at 5.30pm. Then we were happy to get some sleep!
Did 76kms today.
