I haven’t spoken to Mike today, guess he is too busy walking.
The phone seems to be working as I have no problem tracking him.
At the moment he is 40 km out of Ceduna so he is making good progress.
By the look of things it would appear that he might be walking on gravel as there doesn’t appear to be very much bitumen outside the lane line.
That sort of walking would surely be hard on shoes and difficult to push his buggy.
The temperature at Ceduna at the moment is a comfortable 23 degrees with humidity at 83%
