Not much done today, which a good thing because I’ve a long way to go and I needed some recovery time from the last stretch. I’ve plotted a route, guesstimated distances, packed my food and charged all my devices. Everything is set and soon I’ll heading east to the mountains, my last off-roading before racing to Wakkanai to meet Tania.

This evening I had a really good bowl of ramen with Richard and Masako at their favourite place. The noodles seemed a deeper yellow colour than back on Honshu. Perhaps a sign of more egg or creamier butter used in the mix. Whatever it was it tasted great and i’ll try to eat more ramen on Hokkaido.

    Be careful !
    In Hokkaido , there are two terribl things. It’s Big one and tiny one.
    Big one is Bear (=Kuma , Higuma)
    Tiny one is Tick (=Dani)
    Pay special attention to bush.
    Don’t enter into bush unreasonably.
