The elephant sanctuary

We drove some 200kms today to an elephant sanctuary. The only casualty were the Shooters who sadly seized a wheel bearing which they couldn't repair without a puller. The elephant sanctuary looks after retired working elephants. The government use about 2400 elephants in the forests, whilst the same number are emptied by private forestry businesses. They also run a school for 65 children and a tree planting programme. Julian plated a teak trees in memory of his grandfather.

It was he time for our first regularity. Julian drove, I navigated a very windy 22km stretch of road. I thought that I'd screwed it all up but infant we came in with 1 penalty only second to Gerd and Birget. Some grumbles from other competitors but there we are, we are chasing the German fox!

Then it was on to a Hill station which was interesting and fun. Tomorrow it is a tip to Inla lake.
