Today we did try to drive up to the top of Black Mountain to drop off some water for ourselves but after two rough miles by road, we found the way blocked with a locked gate. Winter blockage, even though there isn't any winter to be seen anywhere abouts. So that means for the latter part of tomorrow we will be carrying a full load (4+liters) of water. From mid day tomorrow till the next day, there will be no water to be found. Such is life on the old dusty trail.
