The 20 miles of dirt road south of town didn't get any easier to ride. I kept the speed way down which helps on the washboards but makes the deep sand more difficult. Sometimes in deep sand we fishtaile from one side of the road to the other before bringing it under control. The greater speed causes increased inertia on the wheels which make the wheels track better in deep sand. This was not fun with my precious cargo on back so I keep it slow anyway. If we are going to 'dump it' it will be a slow dump.
During one rest stop this truck with locals stopped to make sure we don't need any help. That makes us feel great knowing that even out here in the middle of nowhere we can get help if we need it.
