#1: The spot

(visited by Stephan Theriault)

26-Jan-2007 -- My family and myself were going for a one month trip down in New South Wales and some confluences were on the menu. On this Australia day while visiting an Aunty and Uncle in Warwick I had to do this one, which wasn't too far off. I headed down the Cunningham highway at first but realised it was the wrong way so I backtracked and got my barings right.

Heading down this other road I found a secondary road to the right and that led me to within a kilometre of the confluence. After going through some long and wet grass and hopping over a fence I got to where I needed to be. I had to stretch my arm over another fence as far out as I could in order to get all the zeroes lined up. So at least a part of my body made it there and that should be sufficient for a successful attempt. Since that fence was an electric one I didn't wan't to get a jolt to have the rest of my body where the exact spot is.

I saw a few rabbits there, the rest of the wildlife was still asleep. The terrain was quite flat and this confluence is a pretty easy one to do Now let's see what 29S 152E will be like
