Jakub walks through preries of SK. Flat and no trees is the main complain. A few cold days especially that he switched to the summer equipment. He is almost in Manitoba, congratulations Jakub. Doing 50 or more KM a day is a huge achievement. On your own with nature, Jakub this is unbelievable achievement.
