Day 510 - 5310km
23.08.2007 17 °C
After 5 days of, heavy, light, consistent and persistent rain, we finally had a dry'ish day when we reached the friendly and cheerful town of Taree.
The journalists of NBN TV and the 'Taree Times' met us on the main bridge as we walked into the town. It is always lovely to meet people who greet you with a smile, and it's needed when we are both tired, with so many targets still to do each day.
As the journey is coming to an ending (of sorts!) a few are now asking about a date when I reach Byron Bay. Well I feel the 22nd is a very good guess right now (give or take a week either way), but firstly I will be asking as many people who were so important in making this event possible. I will be setting a date that suits the most numbers of those who wish to be there. So I will be texting and calling quite a few people, and I will try to pick the best date, but I will not be able to choose a date that suits everyone.
Tomorrow I start the next 80km to Port Macquarie, and it will not be too long when I reach Coffs Harbour.
Kilometres dissapear very quickly when it is coming to last 500.
