Day 4 Shin Sapporo to Hobetsu Campsite, Mukawa

First day of cycling. Happy to be on the Saddle. Had a quick breakfast with the Host. I was asking my host where I could get white gas for my stove.  I wanted to try it as I have been using unleaded petrol and it has been very sooty and dirty. I hear white gas is cleaner.  Ken said he would bring me to buy some and at the same time lead me out to my path. How nice of him.  After getting the white gas I was on my way. The bike path was a short 8 km but it is we very nice as if passes through mostly wooded areas. After that the road was a mix of farm roads and also interstate road. The farm roads were a bit annoying as the gravel pebbles were quite loosely packed. The weather was gloomy as well and it drizzled here and there the whole day. The last 15 km to the campsite was tough as it makes you climb at least 8km before defending for another 6km all the way to the campsite. The campsite itself is beautiful but you have to pay 510yen to camp and use th facilities.  I think it’s ok. So I set up camp and had a quick dinner before packing in. Looking forward for tomorrow.  Not sure where I will be stopping. Still researching.
