Bubbling along nicely

I'm holed up just outside of Katherine having just done the Gibb and the Run up to Mitchell Falls with the family. Makes next years OCR very tempting.

See you in about 5 weeks.

Check out Lake Argyle. One of the best cruises I've done.

h2o

Guessing there is no drinking water between Lake Biddy and Widgiemooltha?
I'm thinking of carrying 3L a day to drink, plus 2L to rehydrate my tucker.
Total of 8L + a bit of reserve for that stretch? That probably means the bladder as a pillion.

Does JD + honey count as hydration?

Looks like roughly 377km for that stretch. No probs for the Safari tank.
Can even spare a bit if required.
