West Coast Itinerary 2003


The fair amount of backtracking came about as a result of me avoiding some of the shorter, more direct routes which were moderately difficult sand roads with a lot of loose sand and stones. Distances are taken from petrol stop to petrol stop as per my motorbikes odometer.
