- Back on track...
After getting the support-car repaired the run is moving towards Perth and
the end of the Nullabor :-)
- The "WAT", above at the secondary start and finish times, indicates the
West Australian Time which applies after the Border Village Checkpoint a
couple of days ago.
However I will still be using South Australian Time to choose the start
time of the two daily sessions of the run. WAT does not have "summertime /
daylight saving time" and stretches over =2000km so at this point SAT
gives a better compliance with sunrise and sunset time.
Once in Norseman at the western end of the Nullabor I will begin using WAT
- and not stay with the same time the rest of run ;-) ... as opposed to
Phileas Fogg in Round the Earth in 80days by Jules Verne (who stayed
strictly with the UK GMT).
PS: The reports from the Nullabor desert are a bit delayed and kept
shorter than usual due to lack of phone and internet connections
