Yesterday a tree branch ripped my panniers side pocket open and lost my bike tools and sockets at the very end of the track.
I didn’t notice until I was back on the highway, today I was only 5 km from where it happened so rode back and found it all still laying there, lucky

The track that was meant to go through becomes this, I walk on a bit but its overgrown with fallen branches all along it, I guess an excavation for crops was the cause but I will try it from the other end tomorrow
