Re: Trig? in Jindabyne

A search for TS1308 on the NSW SIX maps shows a TP that is located out in the Riverina and searching SIX maps for PM1308 and SSM1308 both returned locations up in the Walcha area. I confirmed the PM and SSM location on the NSW SCIMS website. Coupled with "Snowy Mountains Hydro Electrica...." being w...

Re: Anybody seen such a trig before?

Definitely a fire tower. On the top (under the cover) will be a compass to get a bearing for triangulating the fire.

But seriously, what is the point of a fire tower in the RNP, on the edge of a city. They could have a chopper over the fire in minutes. Just weird.

Cheers,
Michael.

Re: Images for Locationless

Thumbs are cool. Full images are less cool. If the auto-doohickey can add a thumb to the log text (at the end), then that sounds like an easy way to log, include the image and have a thumb link generated. I agree with the OP, the process of adding thumbs to logs is a cumbersome one. Auto adding thu...

Re: Graffiti in the bush/National Parks

Yep. See this a lot. Campbelltown Council decided to fix up the track down to a spot called the Basin on the Georges River in Kentlyn. Easier access meant a lot more morons. The area is covered is graffiti and rubbish now. Makes me sad as I have been going there since I was a kid. NPWS spent a lot o...

Re: Archived trig points

As someone who enjoys off-track bushwalking, finding trigs in the scrub is great fun in my opnion. Don't see why the lack of a track to follow should discount a TP from being active. You can re-activate an archived TP cache if you want. Go for it I say.

Cheers,
Michael.
