Well annoyingly, I seem to have failed to saved the page after I finished it. I'm going to see if it's still saved in my browser history at work. I just kept clicking Show Preview until I closed down the browser. How annoying.

Just before heading home from work at the desalination plant in Wonthaggi, I noticed that the geohash point for the day was extremely accessible - almost suspiciously so. Riding home with German workmate Nicola, I turned off mysteriously at an intersection outside my now hometown of Inverloch towards the hash. After some navigational issues spawned from the access road on Google Maps in fact being a private driveway, I was bike-clambouring my way up the dunes to an exclusive RACV coastal resort.

After negotiating a caravan park and tying up my bike I scaled a barbed wire fence into the undeveloped bushland of a dry valley. From here I hurtled towards the hash point, with mere metres to go. Sadly, after crossing a recently ploughed field, I found myself confronting a serious barbed wire and triple-electrified fence (and I don't just mean three-phase!). Also threatening the hash were several bulls looking on at me warily from the hash-field, although I judged I could probably be in, at the hash and out in the time they had to charge me.

Using local resources to climb the unfriendly fence without getting electrocuted, I quickly sauntered over to the hash, took some photos and got back to the safe side before the bulls could amass in too great-a-number over the nearby hill. Strutting back to my bike I tried to catch some kangas with my camera, but in the end just cycled off to my friend's birthday dinner party across town.

Here is the Google Maps route I took.
