No man’s land from now on

My face on day 7a Such a prickle to puncture my airmattress. And hundreds of prickles like this in the -flatfree- wheels
ENG: Louis-Philippe met Aboriginals on 22 July. From then on it will be a long time before he comes across any human life again. On 23 July he walked 15 km instead of the planned 25 km. Despite being 4 days behind schedule, he keeps a good spirit. To make up for lost ground he walks by night for a few more hours thanks to his GPS and stars. It is then very cold, but the day time weather is nice. He has damaged his air mattress, which forces him to sleep on the ground. I guess you can imagine he has had bad nights, but he sounds confident he can make it. Coming up next: more on his trip through the National Park to cross in the Northern Territory.

FRA: Louis-Philippe a rencontré des aborigènes ce mardi 22 : il s’écoulera pas mal de temps avant qu’il croise encore la route d’une forme de vie humaine. Le 23 juillet, il a parcouru 15 km au lieu des 25 quotidiens qu’il s’est fixés comme objectif. Pour rattraper son retard, il marche quelques heures par nuit grâce à son GPS et les étoiles qui l’orientent. Il a malheureusement crevé son matelas pneumatique et est donc obligé de dormir à même le sol. Du coup, les nuits sont courtes et assez mauvaises. Mais la charrette s’allégera et il pourra avancer plus vite. La prochaine fois, vous en apprendrez plus sur sa traversée d’un parc national dans le ‘Northern Territory’.
