TA day 29 Drury to Mercer

31km total 678km

8.5hours total 188hours

After breakfast I left my fantastic one day family and hit the roads again. Going through a construction site before hitting hilly roads was especially hard under the hot sun. Hiking on the State highway wasn’t easy either. Finally we left the roads for the trail and it was a welcomed change. As we were approaching the campsite for the night I was short on water. I finally had a lots of drinks at the McDonald’s at the Mercer service station.

Fortunately tomorrow might be shorter and also cooler than today.
