After a surprisingly benign run down from Fremantle, we arrive in Denmark early afternoon.  Sarah’s sister and the rest of the crew aren’t arriving until the next day.  We’ve not given much thought to how we’ll fill the gap, and resort to coffee and unexpectedly fine chocolate brownie to fuel a planning discussion.  A ‘she’ll be right’ perusal of our new Munda Biddi maps covering the shiny new finally completed bits shows a flat-ish section with a hut on it together with a bit of dual-track dirt road for a return loop the next morning.  Less than an hour later we’re parked, unloaded and heading off.

Taking in some open but quite sandy-soft forest roads, this stretch of the Munda Biddi is just what we wanted

We manage to carry all we need in two Porcelain Rocket seat packs, my frame bag and the Chariot.  We opted to put a tent up at the Booner Mundak hut rather than disturb the family who'd already set up when we arrived.

Bryn's the master of all he surveys (while awake anyway)

Bryn and Sarah team up to give me a lighter Chariot to pull as the early morning shadows shorten the next day

A refreshing pause

On the move again – the fat tyres give comfortable reassurance to the summer-soft-loose surface

Not long afterwards we meet our return route – Gum Link Road. Things narrow down some, with a stream crossing and less room for manoeuvre.
