w of Fortescue Roadhouse to Nanutarra Roadhouse, WA
137.1 km (85.0 mi)

Had a hard time going today. A bit of a headwind, but my motivation wasn't the biggest either. Sometimes I'd go off daydreaming and look down and notice I was going only about 10km/hr. Ended up stopping in a large culvert for a few hours. Don't know why I was such low energy, could have been too much sun, bad raisins, bad water, not enough food, dunno.

Decided I'd try and get to the roadhouse. I was pretty tired then realized I hadn't even gone halfway for that day. Argh.

Only two really exciting things happened this day. Saw an Emu run across the road. The other was when I was about 30k n or the roadhouse, a car pulled over. It was a taxi driver I'd said hello to about 20k earlier. He was on his way back...and he had bought me a sandwich and gave it to me...what nice guy!

Reached the roadhouse about 9:30pm, got food and went to bed.
