FIRE FIGHTER CYCLE
Mars is likely a friendlier place than this to cycle there is likely water and no snakes.Look at the track we are following the trees eventually disappeared eliminating any shade.I have been bitten so many times by bugs, mosquitoes flies and one very swollen spider bite it looks like I have the measles. I don't look very happy because I'm not. My ass fell off my body about 200 km earlier. The deep grasses and rocky areas had many snakes that slither away or just hiss in the grass. I hate snakes.
