Nobody does it better

I'm originally from Canberra...

In Soviet Russia, Nemo finds you!

Now I reside in Brisbane (and have lived in both Brisbane graticules)

Nemo is nobody special.

He drives a car named Eliza which, despite the looks, he's not afraid to get out into the wild. Until May 2009, Nemo was native to -35,149.

Arrow2.png 2009 February 01 - Sunday - A drive out to the "Lake" George, and a bit of an Elizadventure across the ridge
  • No Batteries
Arrow6.png 2009 January 19 - Monday - Should this be here on 2008 Oct 25, for on that date I visited this date's geohash location (even better: I did so as part of the trip TO the Oct25 geohash location. There is video of the drive...
  • Deja Vu (ribbon)
Arrow2.png 2009 January 17 - Saturday - A group in Suburban Canberra

Arrow2.png 2008 June 14 - Saturday - A +24hour late visit - we went to Friday's graticule on Saturday. More pine regrowth, this time out by Molonglo Gorge.
