Day 5 Walpole to Shannon River

Gus and Barb King near Shannon River
It was still dark when I heard the rustling of tents and the clicking of gear levers. Holey shamoley, these folks get up early! I tried to disguise my bacon, egg and tomato breakfast at the Walpole Café as home grown muesli with kangaroo milk but only fooled a few.

With light winds and clear blue skies the group of 43 sailed along between the forest trees with hardly a care in the world. High tech has arrived. Several bikes are equipped with satellite navigation GPS systems which monitor every pedal stroke of the journey. Some claim their GPS monitors their stocks and share investments and can predict who will win the Dockers/Eagles Derby.
