Twas 31 degrees (plus that is!) driving round Mosman at one stage today - big SW winds and the beginnings of bush fires round Sydney outskirts. BTW, Pat Farmer has run 795kms since landing at Union Glacier and is catching up to you with just under 400kms to go! Reckon you can manage your 16-20kms easily once you get into the swing of it again

Suse, click on Go 3D and download the google earth plug in and you'll see the map. Looking forward to tomorrow's update!
