An e-amil from Con:
Great, I am plodding my towards the Nullabor Plain which will be my last stretch of
wilderness, which I want to get done but sad at the sametime because being in the middle
of nowhere is absolutly fantastic.
There is some magic about being one of less than 1000 people in a 100 mile radius. The
stars at night when you camp are trumendous.
The temp is not too bad it is in the 30's and ocasional 40's during the day and down to
between 8-15 at night pretty nippy in the morning, fleece weather. I am covering up while
riding though and plastering sun cream on neck, nose, face and hands.
They also have farm vehicle movement bans on when it gets too hot so they do not cause
bush fires in cornfields. The 2nd test starts tomorrow in Adelaide. Arn't we doing well
there are alot of Aussies taking great pleasure in reminding us how much better they are
than us. The media is having a field day.
Best Regards, Conrad Evans"

I would like to just update you all on my progress. I am currently plodding my way
towards Norseman and the mighty Nullabor Plain, which I only travel about 20km of true
Nullabor Plain just after the Nullabor Roadhouse. The highlight of this will be
travelling 145km on the straightest road in the world.
I have spent the past few weeks in Perth with Margaret and Bob Hadlow who are wonderful
and I had a great time in Perth as I was in a great need of a rest on arriving in Perth
and spent most of my time doing nothing and just relaxing.
Best Regards, Conrad Evans"

I received the following Progress Report:
"Conrad called into the Avon Valley Newspaper in Northam on Wednesday, November
13, at about 3.30pm. Northam is a large town about 100 kilometres east of Perth. Conrad
spoke to a journalist about getting his story printed in the local paper. The journalist
was told that Conrad would stay in Northam overnight before commencing the long ride to
Kalgoorlie (about 600 kilometres) on Thursday, November 14.
Conrad looked well and was keen to continue his journey.
Best of luck, Conrad, from Nathan Watson."
