      Another peaceful day on the river with National Parks either side (Gunbower and Koondrook). Pretty much had the river to myself except for a couple of spots where there were access tracks along the river and there were a few campers. Not another single other boat. The land on the NSW side of the river is private land, so all the campers are on the VIC side where there is a 60m strip of Crown land the full length of their section of the river.
      The river banks since Echuca are high and steep clay banks both sides. The nice sand beaches are gone. This means you either have to find a flattish shelf down close to the river (bit risky if the river rises) or lug all your gear up the steep bank to camp at the main riverbank level. Second option tonight.
      30% of the way to Goolwa. A minor milestone but gives me some confidence I can make the distance.
      Hope everyone is well. No mobile coverage around here so not sure when this will upload.
