At long last I've worked out how to change the date to real time! Better late than never!
At the time of writing Del's en route to Waiouru along 59 kms of Desert Road. He'll miss out on his "long blacks" today!
On long, monotonous stretches he has a tendency to talk to passing animals (usually in their own language!), sing irritatingly catchy tunes that continuously haunt him (eg "Does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bedpost overnight!") or just talk to himself. He'll have the world's problems solved by the time he gets to Waiouru!
Did I say Waiouru? He pedalled on to Taihape today - all of 91kms. There's no stopping the boy!
