[edit] Location

Hindmarsh Drive (inside lane), at Narrabundah (Canberra), between Dalrymple Street (becomes Mugga Lane) and Jerrabomberra Avenue. Near the south-west corner of Capital Golf Club.

NOTE: Someone should do the hash one grid south (2012-08-07 -36 149) as it is also a drive-through hash, on the Myalla Road south of Cooma.

[edit] Plans

I saw this was on the four-lane road, on the "inside" (non-curb) lane. I could travel only about 6-7km from work, during my lunch time.

[edit] 1PE

I prepared the car at a pull-off a bit before the stretch of road:

  • map on the dashboard;
  • rear mirror positioned so my face would also be caught by the camera.

I passed along the other lane(s) and photographed where the hash was, then turned into the side road, Mugga Lane, in order to double back and turn into the inside lane. I waited at the traffic lights behind a large truck, then turned with it into Hindmarsh Drive. The truck took the curb lane and I accelerated down the hill towards the hash.

I took several pictures as I approached the hash.
