Expedition - Fail[edit]

This point was probably reachable but there were multiple problems.

  1. I forgot my hand held GPSr.
  2. My phone lost GPS lock.
  3. There was a closed road.
  4. My Android tablet with free SatNav software put me into a routing loop back to the closed road.
  5. Using the moon for direction I got out of the routing loop.
  6. 350 metres away there was nowhere to park.
  7. A poultry farm blocked one of the routes. This looked as though there might be security so a trespass was not advisable.
  8. At an alternative approach path I nearly put my car in a ditch while trying to park.
  9. Returning home to pick up my GPSr for expedition two, I used the closed road. The closure was on the far side of my destination so I could have ignored the diversion signs - Drat and double drat!

Time to give up and know when you are not wanted.
