Expedition[edit]

I'd just moved to Canberra three days previously and was keen to do my first ACT geohash, particularly as I'd come here on a long cycle tour and only realised I'd missed an easy one right where I was staying due to ignorance a year ago.

Having spent most of the day faffing around not geohashing I finally got it together and left on my bike with two hours to go.

It was hot, and I had a headwind. A few hills and I was nearly there. Just before the turn off I came across a construction site for a new housing development that completely blocked off my access. I had to take the long way around the back.

As I left the main road and got onto some bush tracks along the hillside the heat gave way to drops of rain. Thankfully, I got to the hash, negotiating the scrub and spiders, and was back out to the road without a downpour soaking my jean-shorts.

I took the tailwind along a different route to head back, stopping only to pump up my flattening tyre. ACT geohash achieved. I only have Jervis Bay Territory left on the Australian Mainland to geohash now...

Route[edit]

Here is a map of my route.
