Re: We're baaaaack. TAS, VIC
OK, back home
We had a great time in Tas and Vic with very little rain and better than expected temperatures. Saw about all the wildlife we had on the list except very little parrots (maybe they are nesting), only one platypus from too far away, no dropbears, just one (tiger)snake from 50m away.
We found 48 gc caches (+1DNF) + 2 GCA caches (+1 DNF). It could have been more but several times we just didn't stop while passing a cache, other times it was poor preparation. We missed a few old caches because I forgot to check if there were any along our route for that day.
We found 3 caches on Mt. Wellington and overlooked the old virtual while almost parked on top of it
Most of the Earthcaches were great and at locations we had to see anyway.
100 founds in Australia (52 in 2001).
2 new states, VIC and TAS
Found 2 oldest caches in TAS (North Tassie and South Tasmania 1)
Found Tassie Bellybutton (geographical center of Tasmania)
Found Otways Hard one (hidden April 2001) that wasn't found in 11.5 months.
Found my first Aussie WherIgo (if not for the rain, we had done another one)
Found two Biggles Bear virtuals (one I had worked very long/hard on) but couldn't log because the were archived and locked a month before our holiday.
Time to start thinking about our next trip (and looking at SA, ACT, revisiting NSW, QLD)...
