Stage 3
15-May-2012 07:33:07 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Well third day done!!! And it was a tough one. 36.5km across some spectacular terrain. Walked across a salt flat with a camel racing track in the middle. Took loads of photos which I will share later. Was a bit slower today. 7.30 for the distance, but as it felt like over 40 degrees on the salt flats, I am not complaining! Felt terrible first thing this morning as had a sore neck which was caused by the pack carrying over the first 76km. But a good neck rub from a fellow tent mate who is a kiwi also, fixed it, (and prompted some laughs from others about the mano on mano love action).

So 112km down 138km to go. Off to go and get some rest and eat some food. Thanks to all my awesome family for the great emails and comments.

39 odd km tomorrow before a 90km slog after that…….mmmmmmmmm……

Well by the time you have read this you would have done well over half way. fantastic stuff bro! 90km on the final day is a hard way to end the walk, i dont know how you do it, but good on you bro. Kia Kaha Keri - that is quite an effort, not sure how you do it in those heels either. Good luck for tomorrow :)

First the alcohol now male to male neck rubs is the the Glen Browne who went to Kelston? As gibbo would say "time to drop the hammer". P.S I will help Matt drink his brew as you'll probably want him to rub it on your feet.

I'm starting to know how you feel with all this walking bro. Had to walk up Albert Street three times today. And in heels. Gosh it's tough. Had to have a break and detour down to Smith and Caugheys, but then ended up walking the clothes aisle for an hour!. Now have to rest my feet with a massage. I think I'll survive though and rest up for my walk tomorrow - all the way down to Soul bar for lunch - and then back again. Can totally relate to the pain

Mate I am so impressed with your efforts so far I have decided to name my new batch of beer after you - The Indiana Man Love Brew! Guaranteed you won't be able to walk straight after downing large cold one! No honestly mate great effort so far and good luck with the make 90K slog at the end.
