Day 2 (20 April 2015)
Very rough and steep terrain in the morning, the most challenging of the trip, highly variable wind.
Joe's flying a 4.7m nasa and gets hit by a big gust while on top of a rocky hill, he's pulled out of his buggy and injures an ankle.
I rip the wingtip off the 6m access when it catches a rock. 
The terrain changes constantly for the rest of the day, some fast grassy plains followed by a long rocky decent to a muddy river, we passed a coal mine and stop in a rough mining town for dinner, nice crosswind kiting to midnight.
Distance traveled 115km
Total distance 149km
