We drove to park near the Canberra Deep Space Communications Complex. A frosty morning as we walked the fence of the dishes:
We walked the fire trail to the crest of the Bullen Range, past the communications tower and down the other side. Then a clockwise loop down out of the trees and across the open grasslands, down to near the Murrumbidgee River.
We came across a strung cable, end burnt out, maybe originally used for comms to the space tracking station. Obviously no final GZ waypoints or track on the Track Map.
Feet diagnosed with plantar fasciitus yesterday, so pretty sore. But, apart from the walk in and out, the go-stop of caching suits.
32 UFO caches for the day. plus another at the Corin Road intersection on the way home. Listed here at 1434-1467.
Thanks heaps Roger.
2 walkers – Roger E (Marmaduke Rothschild) (leader), me (JohnnyBoyACT).
