30km, 3:04:38h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops.

As you can see from the pictures from today (web log - 2004-12-22 -
"pictures only"), I have tried to give a portrait of a small
desert/"outback" town in the picture series.
As you can see the town is struggling a bit to get by - in this case after
the iron mining industry closed down.
- Actually the scenario reminds me of the small Siberian "post-soviet"
In Siberia the Party which fuelled and organized the economy disappeared;
in Iron Knob the industry disappeared.
- Left are the museums; and the challenge to find new ways.
22. December tip:
Although I myself rarely eat vitamin supplement - usually at most one
multivitamin pr. month - I have often heard the advice that supplements of
vitamin C (antioxidant to remove free radicals after hard exercise), B12
(can increase endurance) and calcium (for the "ca. muscular process) can
be of help.
"NB: Reports between Iron Knob - Perth may be delayed 2-15 days each due
to lack of mobile phone signal.
Expected run into Perth 15. to 20. February 2005.
Thanks for your patience :-)"
