Track Notes

Being an inveterate list ticker, I have not slept well over the last few years. The Canberra Bushwalking Club’s trig bagging incentive program in 2012-13 left me one trig short.

With the contacts through Lauren O and the generous assistance of the Office of the ACT Surveyor-General, the last trig was visited today!

But … is it the last trig? Trolling geocaches around Corin Dam for our stay last weekend, I read the description for GC5MCG0 Corin’s Crown. It contains:

“It’s been a long time since a found a new trig… Well the trig is not new at all, in fact it is old, decrepit, and long forgotten. But still, a trig is a trig, and there are some fine glimpses of views of the dam below. I would not recommend coming from the road directly below the cache… There is nowhere to park, and the climb would be steep. Start at the suggested spot, for a more gentle approach. But don’t get me wrong – there is still some bush to negotiate toward the end.”

We will just have to see! And I will sleep (nearly) well tonight.

... bushwalking in the ACT and nearby NSW. I began my love affair with the ACT bush in 2004 after completing the Canberra Bushwalking Club's annual Navigation Refresher. Seven sessions of navigation and bushcraft shared by living legends had me hooked. It's grown from a passion to an obsession. With other responsibilities it's hard to get away overnight, so I usually only day walk. I like gadgets and technobabble. Information on this blog is shared in the hope that it might encourage others to get out and breathe a bit of fresh air.
