Track The ACT's NE Border

An auspicious day today, with 2 Tuesday Walks running on the same day - this, plus Max took a party to The Bog.

More success than I had expected, with a number of fine 8" pegs. We found 30 (J1, K1, L1, O1, P1, S1, T1, U1, B2, K2, L2, Q2, R2, S2, T2, V2, W2, X2, Poppet, D3, E3, J3, K3, L3, R3, S3, T3, W3, Z3, A4) border markers, a further possible 4 (M1, C2, Z2, I3) and visited an additional 38 sites where we could not identify a border marker (I1, N1, Q1, R1, V1, W1, X1, Y1, Z1, A2, D2, E2, F2, G2, H2, I2, J2, M2, N2, O2, P2, U2, Y2, A3, B3, C3, F3, G3, H3, M3, N3, O3, P3, Q3, U3, V3, X3, Y3). I forgot to take the mile markers with me.

A quick 8.7km return from Amungula Trig to the cars in 1hr 33mins, with only a slight detour along a mountain bike track as I missed a corner near the Old Homestead Recreation Area.

Thanks Mark B, Phillip S and Stephen M. Great company and great spotting.

Distance: 19.3km Climb: 400m. Time: 12.45 - 5.45pm (5hrs), with 10mins of stops.
