Couldn't manage to come up three days in a row - back was troublesome early (but eventually settled down), but felt generally tired and sluggish, and the run reflected that. Held the navigation together for the most part, except for a familiarity-breeds-contempt moment - I'd helped put some water out yesterday and one of those water controls was the one I stuffed up (only by 30 seconds or so). Was chasing Joanna (for a certain definition of "chasing") for the last few controls; she's pretty fast (certainly faster than me) but we knew that already.
Normal service was resumed in the results today (Simon 32, Dante 39), apart from Angus having a massive blowout early (and hence being my scalp of the day). May not have drunk enough yesterday - let's just say that had I been called on to do a drug test, I would have still been there at 6pm.
Heading back to Adelaide demonstrated that Goyder's line is verifying well; the landscape turned from dustbowl to green in the space of a few kilometres south of Orroroo. North of there you'll sometimes see emus grazing on barren fields; I'm assuming that there are no plans to call in the army to deal with them, given how that worked out last time
