The “Total Time” is my time in December which includes photo shooting time. That day was fine and the track was good. If you were stuck or sunk into bog before Western Bight, you may be off track and need return back to find the track. If you slow down to average 3km/h plus 30 min stop then the total time will be around 3:30hrs.
