Off Tinderbox Road between Howden and Tinderbox
Plan was to drive there and have a look to see if it was accessible, Google maps showed it to be in an area of light bush, but possibly private property.
Drive there was uneventful. Off Tinderbox Road was a small turning circle with several driveways and driveway stubs for vacant blocks. Several no trespassing signs, but also several for sale signs, including the vacant block the hashpoint appeared to be on. A quick phone call and permission to enter was enthusiastically granted, before I even had a chance to say why I was there. A walk up a steepish hill through light bush got me to the hashpoint.
- My cheap GPS nav unit doesn't really work very well for geohashing, coordinates don't update unless you move a significant distance, or power cycle. Even after power cycling while stationary the resulting coordinates are somewhat inconsistent.
- Trying to the the standard proof picture is, well, trying. Backlit LCD from the nav unit, reflective LCD for the watch, plus me.
