Track Notes

Crook wife – walk starved – pleasant ramble.

Under the bridge and along the river track to Bulgar Creek. With Kathy H and Jeff P both geocachers (1 found, 1 seen and Kath helped me find one at the turn around point), I could take this up! Cicadas flying.

OK – so I’m now (2 days later) a registered geocacher taking my first tentative steps. The one Kath helped me find is ‘A (not so) Futile Search for An Unnecessary Cache’, GC2B5CC.

Most pleasant company on an evening stroll.


9 walkers – Jeff B (co-leader), Kathy H, Katrina H, Jeff P, Nerolie P, Margaret R, Phillip S, Linda S (co-leader), me.
