Batchelor to Litchfield NP, NT
38.39 km (23.8 mi)

Farted around town for awhile. Batchelor was a little wierd in that you couldn't really find the center of town, even though there was a sign explicitly stating "town center", which consisted of a store and post office.

Heading out of town both tires went flat. I really need new tubes, but there hasn't been a bike shop in 2,000k that has the ones I need.

Camped near the magnetic termite mounds in Litchfield NP. They are "magnetic" in that they almost align themselves to the north...this way the rising sun will heat up the flat side, then as the sun gets high it has less surface area to hit and the mound doesn't overheat.
