Track Notes

Up in Sydney for the geo-wife’s national CMT conference at Concord Hospital and, of course, to visit with daughter, SIL and grandson.

On Saturday, scored GC4PVHN rivendell, GC53YAT Gulliver’s Soldiers II and missed GC4Q7J8 Yaralla Views. On Sunday, scored GC49YXT Nursing museum, GC4P24V Concord Hospital Medical Library, GCYCHM Grey Grotto and missed GCZMZ9 Xmas leftovers.

The biggest cac was, whilst walking Gay and wheelchair to the conference venue, I pulled out the phone and said “there’s a cache near here!” It was GC4P24V Concord Hospital Medical Library, located probably 10 metres from where Gay sat in the conference room for the day.

Hate the Sydney traffic (although getting more used to it), but love the waterside areas. Rivendell and the Yaralla Estate were magnificent. On the Parramatta River side walks, it was just as though you were out in the bush in places.


1 walker – me.
