By this afternoon Mark will have reached a significant location as shown by the image on the right. This would seem to be the first sign of cultivation after crossing the Nullarbor. The last time Mark saw fields was in the wheatlands of West Australia south of Norseman. You can see them here in the posting for the 14th November.
Incidentally, it is perhaps now worth noting that Mark is in what is called the Eyre peninsula. As the map below shows, the peninsula is not only the triangular area of land with Port Lincoln at its tip but also includes the coastal lands west as far as the border with Western Australia. The Eyre peninsula and the Eyre Highway which Mark has been travelling across the Nullarbor take their name from Edward John Eyre who in 1841 became the first European to traverse the coastline of the Great Australian Bight and the Nullarbor Plain.
I wrote a draft of this posting earlier today when I still had no clue as to Mark's whereabouts. However, I have just read the web diary and can now get a 'fix' on his location. It seems that after a day of strong south east headwinds, Mark did less than 100 miles today and finished the day at Nundroo. Still..... I was only about 24 miles out, which is not bad when you consider we are talking about the outback!
