After around 6 hrs and 2 fuel stops, I was back in familiar territory. Banyala community below means only 35 mins to go

Just a quick note to say thanks to all who prayed. I made it back in only 6.5 hrs, with tail winds and good weather the whole way home. Just after 1st light I headed off with the rising sun behind me. I avoided 3-4 hot air ballons in the area that where watching the sunrise, made my way over the mountains, across the barren coastal flats, around the Gulf of Carpentaria, and then followed the coast home.
