I got my second puncture on this trip. I replaced the inner tube, almost pumped it up and then snapped the valve, arrggghhh. I was staying at a Warmshowers host in Crofton that night and so because it took me so long to replace the inner tube TWICE, they came and rescued me ๐Ÿ˜Š, which was so kind of them.

  1. Good that you’re meeting so many nice people, I’ve found everyone to be so calm and laid back out here in Oz, with nothing being too much trouble. Must be all that sunshine and high vit B levels ๐ŸŒž
