(visited by Roy Meuronen)

08-Nov-2001 -- The GPS was 2 days old, and I was on a 4 day mountain bike ride in the high country. Our route was to pass within 100m of 36°S 149°E, and while it had already been visited, how could I resist.

This day's ride had us going from Cooma to Shannon's Flat. By the time we were approaching the 36th parallel, I had filtered down to the back of the pack, so it was easy to sneak off into the sheep paddock.

The Etrex was set to navigate to the confluence, so I rode north along the road until the arrow swung 90 degrees right. Then I parked the bike, and stepped over the low fence into the open paddock. Less than 100 metres up the hill and the GPS was reading zeros. Pretty cool, and it looks just like the pictures from visit #1!

My stunt camera that I carry with me on my bike is unable to get a clear closeup of the GPS, but I have shots of the surrounding area with the green grass of spring contrasting with the dry summer vista taken earlier in the year.
