[edit] Location

The hash was on the south-eastern shore of Lake George, north of Bungendore, about 45km from my office in Canberra. It was just north-east of a sand and gravel quarry that gathers materials from the lake edge, and about 1km south of the southern-most windmills of the Lake George Wind Farm.

I planned to go on the day, during my lunch time, but a meeting kept me in the office.

[edit] Retro expedition

[edit] 1PE

The expedition became a two-for-one when the site of the next day's geohash 2012-08-01 -35 149 was only about 0.5km from the previous day's hash. I went on the second day and explored as close as possible to both hashes.

I discovered, as I expected, that the rural property leading to the sites was off-limits, with a sign to that effect.

I took a picture of the property sign at the entrance, and left the two geohash 'certificates' on the sign.

I then attempted to gain access to the sand/gravel quarry to get a picture from there. I did not want to approach the quarry office as this would require some explanations that I was not willing to give. So, I followed a truck along the quarry access road until I came to the quarry's engineering area, and got another picture of the truck going to the quarry-face with windmills in the background. The drive back along the access road was without the truck's dust, and much more pleasant.

My camera decided to not synch with the computer, so I'll put the pictures up when it does.

Is it true that this user earned the No trespassing consolation prize?
In principle, yes.
But the expedition was a retro expedition the following day (2012-07-31 -35 149).
