60k n of Katherine to Katherine, NT
72.21 km (44.8 mi)

Got up and going and had a pretty fast ride into Katherine. Watched the sunrise from my tent rather than riding on the road.

Found a great display of a bunch of Jim Beam and cola cans stuck on top of all the brush. Got into Katherine and stopped at the hostel. As I was getting ready to check in I heard someone say "Craig!". It was Jeff of Sydney fame). He is travelling Australia now too and I didn't know exactly where he was.

Spent the rest of the afternoon in the pool and doing odds and ends. My laptop came back to the hostel. Upon firing it up it crashed again, looks like they didn't give me new memory chips. I pulled one of them and it booted up ok. If only I had thought of this sooner I could have saved a lot of trouble, oh well.

Jeff and I had dinner at the take away place where Stuart and I ate a couple weeks ago. I thought that the 40 minute wait a couple weeks ago was just a fluke...turns out it must be normal practice. Went to the Katherine Hot Springs. They weren't really hot, but it was kind of nice to swim in at night. This place is mentioned a couple times in Phil O'Brien's "101 Adventures that got Me Nowhere" books...seems he took a few girls and beers here.

this is something you would totally miss in a car, 15 empty Jim Beam & cola cans stuck on weeds.
