db: dmg 128 gps 134, dtg 1266 margin 518+8=526 so we have that extra day. day 104, 25 to start, 15 to ti, 21 to lane party.

it’s been an odd couple of days – just enough breeze to keep us moving, overcast, water oozing from the sky, almost flat calm, truly unsettling as the calm before the first front, which according to the wx fax must be very close yet no visible sign of it. baro down to 1006, wind now nne – most odd – and we are going to try to use the first front to get us back up to 4430 ish and we’ll run for the corner from there.

everything now getting a bit low except morale. we’re past perth – hi, john, sherryl, mark and kate – sorry we missed you but pencil in the big bash for perhaps early march. we’ve just had dinner – chunky chicken and corn with mashed spuds and brinjal pickles – lervely and my fave. i’m on for the next three hours, another wx fax at 1245 utc which should tell us more if the first front isn’t with us by then.

h, got yours, ta. looking fwd to the cake. and the lane party, peter – got yours too. tks. sounds as if you guys did it much harder.
