Initial projectRide on a push bike with Martin from Adelaide to Darwin.
But... Martin have opportunities to save a lots of miles if he will take a plane in France Soon.
His time become limited and we got 3 or 4 weeks to ride on the Stuart Highway with no experience.
Finally, after 3 days, Arrived in Port Augusta, I realize that we take the same road but not the same purpose. I would like Explore the Stuart Highway, take detours, avail of the opportunities, take days off for take rest and learn the history of the places, make meetings, take my time for enjoy each day. Then, I tell him " keep going without me, I need to stay here one day and take rest before to keep going."
I become alone and was not sure to keep going by my self. Apprehensive, I gone to the library and use the internet for tell my situation and looking for someone to join me. But I cant wait that someone join me for continue my travel so I decided to continue by my self and was the best decision for got the most freedom.
"Go where I want, when I want, in my rhythm."
