Enjoy your quick trip in Tasmania - seems like you're meeting the challenge! Hope you enjoy your morning tomorrow before flying out at lunch time. Are you caching again before going to the airport?

Morning I will visit Cascade Garden and Factory and rest time caching. Yesterday I visited the Tahune Forest Airwalk and 360 degrees view from the summit of Mt. Wellington and had found few caches along the way. Tasmania is so green, colorfull... Beautiful island. Death line at airport is 11 AM.

I have an awful head cold, otherwise I'd be your girl for Melbourne. I'll ask the Facebook group for a taker.....

A quick bit of background. A number of Aussie geocachers met Vrso in Dunedin at the Mega Event. He is a GC.com reviewer in Europe with the mad plan of finding a cache in each Australian state/territory. If he does it (which I think he will) he'll probably set a record for doing it in the shortest time.

Thankfully 'we' talked him out of driving around most of the country and he's decided to fly it instead.

I caught up with him on Monday while he was in Sydney and we had a great chat. He's a very friendly guy, keen to meet and talk with locals.

If you are to catch up with him during his Australian visit you're sure to have a great chat over a coffee or meal, and wish him luck.

MtnLioness and I had a 30 min chat with him close to 11pm or so at the Octagon in Dunedin one night during the Mega. Very friendly indeed. I wish you well in the rest of your travels around OZ.

Hey there!
Remember me?

We chatted for ages at night near the octagon.
I can come to the City on Saturday and accompany you around the city for the day if you like.
Did you ever get any answers about the change of icon for the grandfathered movables?

My Phone Number is on my Geocaching.com profile page.

The Spindoctors: Darren I have to say big Thank you, cause you helped me a lot with ideas and plans. If not your help, I would probably die on road somewhere in middle of nowhere :) Every meeting with you was full of new experiences for me.
I'm quite moderate guy, so I didn't want to scream "I'm the Reviewer" :) At least because I don't know if you like Reviewers here or not :)

mtbikeroz: that was nice chat for me as well. I got great idea from you to go for cache on Slope point, which I found 2 days after. Thank you

MtnLioness: I remember almost each nice girl I was speaking with, so how could I forget you???
I arranged for Saturday with another geocacher from Adelaide, but he offered to send me an email with schedule, but nothing happened. My mailbox is still empty and dry :) So I'm free for you, or if guy will make program, we can spend some time together. Looking forward to meet you.

That means Adelaide is fully booked for me.

Darwin? No geocachers there? I'm still waiting for you
Perth? All on holiday or busy? Contact me ASAP, don't miss chance to meet real European in Perth :)

Thank you all

All done ! I've found a cache in all States and theritories in Australia. My challenge is done.

I spent a great time. Have a big experience now. I felt cold in Tasmania or 33 degrees of Celsium in midnight in Darwin...

I travel a lot but now I can say, your country Australia and New Zealand are the most interesting countries. Here is still where to travel, see beautiful nature or meet nice people.

I have now few new friends, promissed for myself, I'll be back.

The best day with locals was in Adelaide. Since morning we were looking for geocaches with Tamara (MtnLioness) and her friend Rodney, afternoon Skippy and his nice wife took us for adventure trip to the mountains. We finished this busy day on very friendly party at Rodneys home.

Thank you all of you

Hopefuly see you on MEGA in Australia...
