27-Feb-2013 -- A new line-hunter is born
After spending a fun day in Bendigo, we reached this point near Maldon, a small historical town on our way back to Melbourne.
The previous day we had reached 38S-143E but Kiniki and Florence sat out in the car with merely 460 meters to go. For this point Kiniki redeemed herself by leading the charge to the point and had a total blast doing the confluence dance. Now she appreciates how much fun line hunting could be, and starting to count how many more points left to hunt in Australia.
Florence who had done many hunts with Ray and view such enterprise almost a form of addiction, skipped the final approach and instead spent the hour checking out Maldon, about 5 km GPS distance from this point. The hunting party also had a nice visit in Maldon after the hunt which is truly a pleasant little town.
Like the last point, this point is located in a fenced in area of a cow pasture. What was nice with this point is having a watering hole and few large trees made it a nicer scenery.
First point for Kiniki, many happy huntings.
Rating of this hunt
Degree of Challenge:
1 – easy drive and a short hike (1= very easy - drive to the point; to 5= a death march – glad it is over)
2– Inside a cattle farm’s grass field typical landscape of this part of Australia (Scale: 1= not interesting at all; 5= take your breath away)
2 – The friendly historical town Moldan made it a fun visit beyond reaching the confluence point (Scale: 1=dull; 5= most stimulating)
