Day 73

Start:  Tweed Heads Finish:  Surfers Paradise Distance:  15 Total:  1156 Today was one long, continuous, flat sidewalk.

Day 68

Start:  Woodburn Finish:  West Ballina Distance:  23 Total:  1076 Last nights stay in Woodburn was not a good experience. Then today I missed a turn and had to backtrack.
