- Guest reporter Peter Rietveld writes:
A very good sleep it was and the first "task" in the morning was a meeting
with the " Golden Star" reporter Richard McKenzie, who came racing down
when he heard about Jesper? s adventure. I keep thinking each time that
the next day will be easier but there is always a reason why we keep on
running just a little bit more and so there we jogged on towards Field
some 56,5km down the road. In between again nothing or in other words;
pure nature in this National Park. Again on the way there was a car that
stopped and curiously asked what two adult men do pushing baby joggers,
for heaven sake, on the high way???!!! When explained that there was
really no suffocated baby under our luggage they immediately invited us
over to their place in Field to stay for the night, and what a place it
was, build out of an old railway wagon and completely creatively
redecorated with Pauwa shell imbedded in the bathroom floor.. A four week
old baby made sure she wasn't forgotten while we were served some good
pasta and washed it away with some real Canadian beer. Jesper took the bed
and I managed to take Kea's place for the night. (Kea is the Labrador kind
dog of the house) It was again a great time in the homely home of Nicky
and Mike. Peter
