We were up at the Thomas Hill Hostel sitting around the camplight (camp fires were banned) for the “Come Remember with me” geocaching event and someone said it has turned midnight and shouldn’t I be taking pictures for the 12 of 12.
I didn’t realise it was that time again – this last month has flown but then again I have spent a bit of time all over the country in the last month.
I looked up at the sky and saw the full moon with a jet trail just under it. There was photo number one.
Not long after it was time to head up into the roof top tent and grab some sleep.
Woke up not long after dawn but couldn’t get a good photo so back to bed for another couple of hours sleep.
Went inside to find the big table full of laptops, GPS’s and mobile internet devices. There must be a lot of nerds here or geocachers or both.
After everyone updating GPS operating systems and loading the geocaches it was time to do the drivebys on the caches within the property. These would normally require a lot of hiking to get.
Didn’t take long to see our first snake but missed getting a photo – it was a 1 metre brown snake.
We headed out on the various tracks which 12 months ago were wet and slippery but today dry and dusty. I was out caching with Honeysucker, Skippy and Semik. Out of the 6 caches we did at this time, I had found them 12 months ago except for one.
Time to head home then it was out for dinner at Jenny’s brothers to finish this months 12 of 12.
