Track Notes

Being an inveterate list ticker, I have not slept well over the last few years. The Canberra Bushwalking Club’s trig bagging incentive program in 2012-13 left me one trig short.

With the contacts through Lauren O and the generous assistance of the Office of the ACT Surveyor-General, the last trig was visited today!

But … is it the last trig? Trolling geocaches around Corin Dam for our stay last weekend, I read the description for GC5MCG0 Corin’s Crown. It contains:

“It’s been a long time since a found a new trig… Well the trig is not new at all, in fact it is old, decrepit, and long forgotten. But still, a trig is a trig, and there are some fine glimpses of views of the dam below. I would not recommend coming from the road directly below the cache… There is nowhere to park, and the climb would be steep. Start at the suggested spot, for a more gentle approach. But don’t get me wrong – there is still some bush to negotiate toward the end.”

We will just have to see! And I will sleep (nearly) well tonight.
